"Quirky eats"

Serves BBQ, Indian, Greek, Mexican and American, all at the same place. Funky décor with handcrafted Masks from Africa and you select your beer out of a coffin with Mr. Bones nearby! Only place I know that serves BBQ with Vegetable Fried Rice and Southern Candied Yams! Quirky but good eats!

This place is just down the block from my old house when I was a local and kudos to the owners for not changing a thing over the last few decades as the local island charm has eroded. Absolutely any menu choice is guaranteed delicious from this place... so good you may want to consider eating here 2 or 3... More

Very funky decor and great food. There were masks all over the walls. The BBQ was excellent & the gumbo was great.

I really wanted this to be great. I loved the menu. But it didn't deliver. First of all I felt that my ribs were overcooked. I will also back that statement up by saying that I am a KCBS barbecue judge and competitor. The ribs were very tender which was nice but they was so overcooked my teeth sunk into... More

This is a Diamond in the rough! Super small dining area with a New Orleans voodoo feel. Menu was eclectic with curry, ribs, chicken wings, rice, and even hot dogs for the kids offered. Ribs were delicious and the chicken kabobs and rice were also wonderful. We would definitely frequent again!

Mr. Bones serves wonderful pulled pork with their own sauce, but many other exciting entrees from the Cuban and Caribbean perspective. They have more varieties of fried rice than I have ever seen anywhere else. One excellent dish is their Havana Hash which is fried rice with ground beef and black beans over top of the rice. Rich and tasty.... More

I've eaten ribs all over this great country and Mr. Bones is by far the best I've had.. There is just something about them that makes me want them all year round.. My 11 year old son and I visit twice a summer. Once with the family, and once as a pair.. My wife and daughter are not rib people... More
