Redbones- any suggestions?

Off to Redbones for dinner tonight. Looked at their menu, and am at a loss as to what to order! I am by no means an expert on BBQ- i usually only have BBQ on my trips to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. there are four of us, so we probably get a good selection. Need help especially with the apps and sides. TIA

  1. I like their homemade sausage with a side of potato salad, washed down with a Goombay Smash. The brisket can be hit or miss, when they're on it's great but that's not always the case.

    1. I like their fried oysters.

      1. I like the buffalo shrimp for an app.

        1. re: ebone

          Have to agree on these. Not really a downhome bbq side but really good. If the beer list is accurate I would go for one of the Great Divide IPA's.

        2. I like their fried stuff - okra, french fries, etc. Succotash is good, soupy. Mac and cheese is the gooey, cheesy kind. I like the standard Memphis ribs, and the jerk beef when it's spicy (sometimes it's really hot). And, of course, the beer.

          1. Start with the wings, well done with extra sauce. Next have a two meat combo platter with Jerk Beef (Can be very spicy) and Pulled Pork. Add a side of Mac & Cheese and a couple of Bear Racer #5's to wash the food down. This is my go to meal, sometimes I substitute the Arkansas Ribs for the pulled pork.
