I haven't visited Mr Bones for a few years, went back last week and it was even better than I remembered. Our party of three enjoyed the BBQ baby back ribs, 1/2 chicken and 10 wings. Everyone loved their meal, the ribs were a stand out. They don't provide seasoning and you don't need it! Sides of beans, yams etc... More

The barbecue is to die for! They serve really good garlic bread with the dinner in house as well. It's a very quiry, New Orleans style restaurant. Small place. Great service. Food is amazing! Curried rice, vegetable fried rice, potato salad ----all really, really good!

On previous trips to this area we avoided Mr Bones as it seemed way too unusual for us. Took a chance this time and was more than pleasantly surprised. Great BBQ chicken & pulled pork. Hot was only mildly spicy. I was a bit taken back by their no salt/no pepper policy but found the food seasoned in such a... More

Small greasy little place. Should have known something was wrong, when no one was there at Noon. Have a signed posted --Don't ask for salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard---because "Chef" has seasoned food. No French fries! Yams, cole slaw offered as options.

Gotta love a place where first thing you do is pick up a ice cold bottled beer out of a coffin! We had the chopped BBQ sandwich but want to go back and try the bowls (the curry one). The sweet potatoes side was great.

My wife and I ate at Mr Bones. The atmosphere had a nice feel to it and gave the restaurant the spooky voodoo feel that it is known for. Service was good, we were seated and served immediately. I ordered the pork BBQ plate and my wife ordered the honey glazed chicken. Sides are very limited, so I went with... More

Food is good, beer is cold, prices aren't horrible, service is kind of average. Not great if you have a picky eater...no French fries or baked potatoes. And don't ask for ketchup!!!

We decided to take advantage of the eclectic menu at Mr. Bones (BBQ and Indian food??). We had a variety of dishes from baby back ribs, to Jambalaya to the Chicken Tikka and Congo Chicken. Everyone thought their meals were very good; my husband particularly loved his Jambalaya. The decor is fun and the kids enjoyed choosing their drinks from... More

Had a nice dinner at Mr Bones. I usually don't eat ribs because they are never that good but the ribs at Mr Bones where outstanding. This is the place to visit if you are looking for a quick dinner with excellent food. It's not a fancy place, though.

Food was decent and served promptly, however I was disappointed at the automatic 20% tip added for groups of six or larger. Sorry, but that was way overboard. I'll let it pass this time, but will not go back nor offer a recommendation. Plenty of other dining options to choose from.
