Best damn slow-cooked baby back ribs I've had anywhere in years! No room or would have had 2nds.It starts with the raw materials of course, goes to the seasonings and rubs, then the slow cooking process (over 18 hours) and finally the tangy, tasty sauce.

I come here often but sometime it's a hit or miss with the ribs. They have a great bar which is fully loaded with draft beers and liquor. Friendly, fast great service. Price are a little high.

I've had several meals here, and consulted chef Aaron Robins when I wanted to buy a smoker for my house. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The pork ribs are served wet or dry, and both are wonderful -- tender and tasty, with just the right amount of tooth and smoke. The smoked ribeye is... More

I was really hungry before coming here so that could be the reason for the 5 stars. Haha jk. No really the good here is great!! I asked the waiter for ranch and this green thing came to the table. I was kind of unsure what it was because the ranch was green! It turns out it's avocado/cilantro ranch. Good... More

I visited The Boneyard with friends last Sunday evening and couldn't believe how bad the food was! Our server was very pleasant but our meal went straight down from there. I ordered a Mediteranian Chopped Salad that really was not fit to eat! My girlfriend ordered the same salad and had the same thing to say. My friend's wife ordered... More

We met another couple here for dinner. We were early, so had some time to enjoy happy hour. The St. Louis Framboise was delicious, as were the chili donuts. The waitstaff and service was great. We then sat in the front patio area and enjoyed a leisurely dinner of burgers, fried dates, yellowfin and salads. Some things were okay, some... More

Can I write beef ribs 50 times? The cornbread is amazing the pulled pork dumplings!!!! I love the beef ribs with the dry rub and the local beer flight. My wife likes the baby backs with the wet. Haven't had a bad meal yet.

We have enjoyed going here almost since the beginning. Not only is the BBQ expertly prepared, but the menu offers both Boneyard Classics and seasonal dishes (crab ceviche in photo). There are rotating beers offered by local craft brewers and a good wine list. Kudos to owner Aaron Robins.
