The crowed was not in yet at 6 pm Saturday evening. There is an inside seating and kind of outside covered/ in closed patios eating ,we chose the second one. The Decor is simple and practical, nothing fancy, but odd painting of Skeleton figures on the walls! The Menu was kind of different, and we were not sure what to... More

Besides a full menu that's BBQ it's very diverse and last night tried the crab cake and wonderful bone in rib eye steak. I've had their wonderful BBQ which is amazing and offered dry rub or with sauce (try the ribs ) but this steak matches alongside the fanciest steak places in town. Asparagus was perfectly cooked. My companion had... More

We visited last week with local friends and loved it. 42 beers on tap (yes 42!), we all choose a variety of their ribs which were all finished off very quickly - my 7 year old daughter managed a half rack to herself - believe me this is high praise! If visiting Universal, I would also recommend dropping in on... More

Used to be better. Ribs ok. Not great. Sometimes dry. Been there many times because they're local. Burgers better than ribs. She emu for years . Friendly staff. Bar drinks are the best we've had anywhere . Used to have dinner therefore frequently but wanted more varied menu.

This is the ultimate BBQ, where you get what you desire. Whether you want Dry rub or wet with sauce, Carolina style or whatever, they serve it up. 4 of us all ordered combos to try different ribs and meats. I had Brisket to die for with pork ribs. I ordered rare and got it the way it was ordered.... More

We were in LA to see a comedy our daughter is in at the Whitefire theatre. The theatre advertises valet parking at the Boneyard Bistro. "Enjoy dining & valet parking at Boneyard Bistro". The ribs were good, the service was fantastic, the staff was attentive and friendly.

Had a birthday dinner for 7 people and the staff was super helpful about moving tables around so we were comfortable. Ordered the mini-mega and it was the perfect size for all of us (with a little bit left over for my lunch the next day) and tasted amazing! Terrific cocktail and drink menu as well. I can't say enough... More

Have been to this place a couple times. Let me get the food out of the way- it is tasty, have some great bbq items and burgers. They have a good bar selection, quite a few good beers on tap- mixed drinks, etc. The staff is typically pleasant, however our experience last night left us all a little sour. Our... More
