Upscale BBQ!

Met some friends for an early dinner and drinks! Casual, lively atmosphere with very unique and upscale BBQ menu. Fantastic and different drink menu as well. The service was friendly and helpful. Loved the pulled-pork dumplings and stuffed dates! Absolutely delicious!

The "Grilled Meat" dinner: $30 or so. "Side" dishes: between $3 and $7. Sandwiches: $16 to $18. Hickory smoked chicken: $17 to $19. I ordered the Ribs and ¼ Chicken with Cole Slaw and a soft drink. With the tip, my dinner was just under $40. The food was good and so was the service. However, I didn’t think it... More

After a long drive on the 405, we wanted to try something different. Wanted a beer and good late lunch. First time here, liked the Yelp reviews so called for a reservation. We loved our meal, loved Drew our server, had 45 (I think) beers on draft and great tropical tea for those not looking for alcohol. We tried (4)... More

Our first time to Boneyard Bistro was a lot of fun! We went for a family birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the experience. We were seated immediately for our reservation, enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and much laughter. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers something for everyone with a friendly bar atmosphere, bistro food and upscale bbq.... More

Yes, this is a Bar B Q but so much more. Creative dishes from a take on Asian duck to fresh mussels with chorizo, from my favorite burger ANYWHERE (The Southwest Patty Melt) to fine steaks, Boneyard has it all!

My sister and I decided to come here for lunch after a long day of shopping. We've both been told, this place is quite good and wanted to see for ourselves. The location is convenient and easy to access, being right on Ventura Blvd. The inside is cozy and rustic and you have a choice to eat in the dining... More

One of the best spots I've ever ate. Amazing bbq! Constantly friendly, excellent food that melts in your mouth and strong drinks. They have indoor & outdoor seating as well as a bar. The decor is modern and has cool pictures of skulls painted on the walls. The food comes quick and they have the largest list of ales and... More

I don't know why I had not come here before. The BBQ here is some of the best I have tried anywhere in the U.S. The meats are perfectly cooked, full of flavor and great to share. Be sure to try the bacon sticks as a starter. The only complain I would have is that they do not have sweet... More

Took my family there for a birthday celebration. There were five of us. Except for the brisket which was melt in your mouth outstanding, everything else was nothing to write home about. I also thought everything was overpriced.

I love this restaurant and have been here many times. The food is so delicious I've had several different things on the menu. Patty melt! Yummmm!! They have a great beer selection! I would recommend anyone to go here and I will continue to go whenever I get chances to.
