I'm glad to have a new lunch option near my office in Kendall. To be honest, when it comes to BBQ, I long for Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Fette Sau; Redbones and other Boston spots have never completely fulfilled my needs, but they're still generally satisfying. (I do intend to try Blue Ribbon and Black Strap before making any wide-sweeping "Boston has bad BBQ" judgments.)
Redbones knows how to do an opening. Free ribs for everyone!
I got a pulled pork sandwich with a side of cornbread. Good sustenance for the impending earthquake, all 20 lightly vibrating seconds of it.
Coincidentally, Joel's band, the Somerville Symphony Orkestar, picked up a gig right there as part of the Kendall Square lunch concert series, so I got to eat new tasty food and be a supportive groupie.
Like what you see? Check them out on Facebook for music, info about upcoming gigs, etc.
Then, I returned to my office, and quakapocalypse struck. (My co-workers and I actually did feel it on the 9th floor of our building, and the Californian in the office said, "This is when we should leave the building." So we did. Party outside!)
Have you made it to the new Redbones Rib Shack yet? What do you think?
