Southern hospitality may be hard to come by up North, but Redbones BBQ brings it to Boston in spades.

Popular with artsy college kids and young professionals, the restaurant – adorned with old photos of barbecues, homemade signs, and autographed snapshots of R&B singers – sees a good crowd at lunch as lively groups fill the tables in the fast-paced dining room to chat over pulled pork and corn pudding, or pack into the counter seats overlooking the open kitchen.

The restaurant’s unfussy bar hosts a hodgepodge of local business people and musician types, who settle in for a quick bite, an upbeat first date, or an evening of sampling the twenty-four brews on tap.

A slightly younger clientele looking for a homey drinking den can head downstairs to Underbones, a dimly-lit bar where frolicsome preppies and Tufts students meet up and get loose, as raucous groups celebrate birthdays by pounding deliciously quirky Southern cocktails like mint juleps, Swedish lemonades, and any of the eight types of margaritas.

With a spicy menu and a high-energy vibe steeped in Southern flavor, Redbones BBQ is definitely a spot where the good times roll.

Tip from Emma:

This place has an awesome Happy Hour with half-off appetizers Monday through Friday. After a few days of fried okra, hush puppies, and Lynchburg Lemonades, you’ll have a new twang and be crooning Kenny Chesney’s drunken country songs!

  • Crowd

    Preppy post-grads, college students, artsy young professionals, Southern food enthusiasts, birthday groups, dates, and finance types for lunch, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Playlist of blues, rock, and jazz. Special events include keg parties like the Northwest Fest, an outdoor barbecue/bike party called Pig Pickin, and various benefits for local charities.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Southern menu featuring pulled pork sandwiches, Memphis ribs, and fried catfish. Half off appetizers M–Th 4–6pm. Bicycle valet available.

  • Prices

    Appetizers $2–$8, sandwiches $6.50–$11, entrées $9–$18. Beer $2.50–$14, wine $4–$6.50, cocktails $6–$7.

    Sacco’s Bowl Haven (45 Day Street) is a great pre-game spot for a little bowling before drinking to the blues.

Redbones boasts a growing cult following among Boston BBQ lovers. This is one of the few places that has earned the approval of my Southern friends. The beer selection is enormous and they serve in giant mugs. My personal favorite is the pulled pork and mac n cheese. The one menu item I haven't liked here was the Portabella Mushroom burger, so Redbones may not be the best place for a Vegetarian.
One of Boston's best spots for BBQ

People come from all over to try the barbecue at Redbones. The menu has plenty of Southern style items, from catfish to briskets. For the undecided, there are several diverse appetizer combos. I recommend Combo 3: St. Louis ribs and grilled wings with barbeque sauces. Naturally, there are also family style dinners, perfect for a big group of people. Those dinners offer all the staples: ribs, chicken, cornbread and more. A wide selection of microbrews consistently changes, offering something new with every visit. The company is just as varied. One day you might find yourself sitting next to an area executive, the next, a musician. And if the people you are sitting with aren't colorful enough, check out the decor. The space is adorned with vintage photographs of past BBQ events, hand made signs, and autographs from R&B musicians.
