Casual and good fare

This is a unique rib place. It not only has great spareribs but also excellent Indian cuisine! I had the chicken kebob biryani and it was delicious. My husband had the meaty spareribs plus a great house salad. Prices are good and service excellent.

My husband and I shared an order. Was delicious and very messy. The cole slaw and potato salad were excellent. We balanced with a big home made salad. Was a nice vacation treat, definitely give it a try.

Was really looking forward to the 'Expertly cooked ribs'. The ribs were ok but no better than the ready prepared ones you can purchase in The supermarkets to heat in the oven. The sides we had were the bbq beans, no better than the tinned version, the candied yams, disgustingly sweet, the potato salad very bland no seasoning. The waitress... More

We ordered ribs from this place to bring home. We were sharing a rib dinner. We had these for 2 meals. The portions are very generous and the ribs were delicious!

We had the hickory babyback ribs with sides of slaw, beans and candied yams. You can't go wrong - they are perfect. Service was very, very quick and friendly. Casual dining at its best. Get there early before the crowds.They have take-out.

First off, I give this place credit on the vegan menu, which is why I visited. But...the food was bland, tasteless and just not good. I was surprised at how bad it was based on the reviews. We got take out. After driving 5 minutes down the street I had to microwave my veggie burger to get it warm. It... More

Although it had been three years since we’d been on the island, we headed straight to Mr. Bones for their Indian/Cajun bar-b-que. We chose jambalaya and fall-off-the-bone babyback ribs with one of their wonderful sauces. To die for. Even their candied-yam side had me wishing the portions had been larger. To wash it all down, we chose from their vast... More
