Bonez Brothers BBQ Is Opening in Quincy

A new barbecue joint is on its way to the Boston area, and it will feature a type of meat that isn't all that easy to find in the region.

According to City of Quincy consultant and publicist Kerry J. Byrne, Bonez Brothers BBQ is opening in Quincy, with Todd Noon of the Massachusetts-based catering company by the same name being behind the Southern Artery dining spot. Byrne tells us that the restaurant will feature such classics as pulled pork, brisket, and baby back ribs, and the menu will also include a number of alligator-based dishes, including alligator fritters, alligator sausage, and alligator tail. Bonez Brothers BBQ will feature a favorite among their catering/event options as well--Love in a Cup, which is a 16-ounce Solo cup with layers of pulled pork, barbecue sauce, collard greens, beans and cole slaw, all topped with a pickle and more sauce. If all goes as planned, Bonez Brothers BBQ could be opening in a couple of weeks.

Todd Noon is a longtime alligator hunter who took up competitive barbecuing in Florida and was involved with Michelbob's, an award-winning restaurant in Naples.

The address for this new BBQ spot in Quincy is: Bonez Brothers BBQ, 657 Southern Artery, Quincy, MA, 02169. The Instagram page for the business can be found at

[September 27 update: The Facebook page for the place indicates that Bonez Brothers BBQ has soft-opened, with the restaurant only open on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for what appears to be the foreseeable future. A message from Kerry Byrne indicates that its menu includes such items as alligator sausage, alligator fritters, alligator jambalaya, pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket poutine, ribs, cracklings, macaroni and cheese, and wings.]
