Redbones Barbecue

 55 Chester St
Somerville, MA

Boston area's best overall BBQ

The decor is like an old barroom, crowded closely spaced tables, but the service is fast and very friendly. But it’s the FOOD that keeps me coming back. Very tender ribs, lots of southern soul food, and mixed with several genuine Texas BBQ and Mexican specialties. This time, I tried their Chili Verde – and it’s the very best I have ever tasted! Better than in Mexico City. It’s enough for a full meal by itself. Collard greens were like home, and there was great cornbread to sop up the potliquor. The onion straws were like homemade onion rings – good but nothing special. We ordered a large order of St. Louis ribs to share and took half home. I’m on the South Beach diet, and this place rocks for me. There are plenty of low carb dishes, but enough of the other stuff to tempt you too.

Chili Verde

Best I have ever eaten; better than in Mexico City. Tender pork in a rich green soup loaded with cheese and served with homemade corn tortilla chips. YUM!
