Memphis’ beloved turkey leg joint, Red Bones, is undergoing a transformation and expansion. Founded by Cristopher “FreeSol” Anderson and Tony Westmoreland, the restaurant has rebranded as Uncle Red’s, paying homage to FreeSol’s late uncle, Michael “Red Bone” Anderson. The change reflects their commitment to honoring family heritage.
Excitingly, Uncle Red’s is expanding its footprint. Two new locations are set to open soon, with one in the former Salt | Soy Building at 2583 Broad Ave and the other in the former Avenue Coffee building at 786 Echles St. While no specific opening date is confirmed for either location, Westmoreland is targeting an end-of-year launch.
Uncle Red’s is renowned for its uniquely flavored and stuffed turkey legs that are a far cry from your typical theme park fare. These turkey legs are famous for their “fall-off-da-bone” tenderness and “melt-in-your-mouth” taste. One turkey leg provides enough delicious food for at least two people.
So when those turkey cravings hit, just head to Uncle Red’s at Carolina Watershed. And keep an eye out for the specific opening dates of their upcoming locations—it’s about to get even tastier in Memphis!
