Went there for Father's Day with the family for lunch. Corn on the cob was cold, chicken and brisket were dry. Ribs were OK but the portions were small. Good thing I ordered the two sides plate. Also cole slaw was bland. Wouldn't recommend.

What makes The Bone so good? We'll let you in on our secret... there's no generations-old technique or high-tech equipment fueling our fire, it simply starts and ends with the ingredients. From our Certified Angus Beef Brisket to our Locally-Sourced Fresh Produce to the Hickory Logs Smoking our Pits, when you enjoy a mouthwatering platter from The Bone you know you are getting honest, no-frills barbeque.
