Best for: Commuters and wiry couriers who need meat on their bones
Located on Davis Square, in the northwestern suburbs of Boston, Redbones claims they were first place in the nation with a Bicycle Valet, back in 1996. Pedal over and they’ll keep your bike in a secure spot while you drink. They serve some of the best barbecue this side of the Mason-Dixon, all grilled on an open pit fire. More importantly, their draft beer list is as big as their food menu—28 beers on tap and counting. And in case you’re too knackered from the day’s training ride to go out, Redbones delivers—aboard a custom-made cargo bike (“The Rib Rider”), of course.
