this is a really good barbeque joint right off the red line.

the beer is always fresh, as they have constantly rotating taps, with about 20 or so beers to choose from at any given time, with most of them being really good crafts.

the service is great, and the atmostphere is pretty good, the place is not fancy, the tables are plain as are the chairs, not table clothes or cloth napkins, just really good bbq.

and the prices are really good for the food, the beer is starting to get a little bit expensive. if you are ever in the area and you are looking for a new place to try this place should definitely be at the top of your list.

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

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

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.

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
