I remember when this place opened and I used to live in West Somerville. I was a pretty regular customer. I've only been in there a few times in the last couple of years, but the beer selection has always been first rate, and the owners are quite active sponsors of good beer events. The food is good if you are into messy barbeque. The only downside is that the bar room is quite narrow and separated from the restaurant which means that a few dozen people standing will make it very packed in that area. The restaurant is always crowded which invariably means that there are plenty of people waiting in the bar area. The downstairs is a bit dark and low ceilinged for my tastes. Red Bones is a great place for people who like beer variety. On the way home, go to Elm Street Liquors just down the street for a truly impressive variety of beers to takeout. (856 characters)

Can't go wrong with Redbones! For BBQ in New England, it's superb. (66 characters)

Would go more, but their beers are always $1-$3 more expensive than they should be. excellent food. (99 characters)

Redbones has a great beer selection. They have a variety of sizes 10.5 oz-33oz. Their menu has detailed descriptions of the beers with prices listed for each serving size. Their prices are great and the staff knows how to serve beer properly. The food is great but it isn't authentic barbecue its like Tex-Mex compared to Mexican food. It is delicious but it just not the same. You can't go wrong with this place. (414 characters)

Truly one of the most over-rated places ever. Let's be sure to split this into two distinct reviews. Their beer list is nice and if you are ONLY looking for a quality beer and are standing out front. Fine, pop in and only order a beer. However, in a world of choices as a whole this place is nowhere near a great option. The BBQ claims to be authentic and isn't even close. Let's just say I asked if they had NC vinegar style sauce...... the waiter literally brought me cider vinegar. just cider vinegar. Go elsewhere for food & beer (542 characters)
