I have been going to this place since I was in high school. Every time I am in the Detroit area the first thing I do when I get off the plane is get Bone Yard Ribs. They have 3 locations and all of them are awesome. If you don't want to wait for a table then arrive before 5... More

I went to this restaurant with my Mom for lunch. We were there around 1:30 and the place was not crowded. We ordered the chicken and rib combo. The food tasted OK but was nothing special . We probably would not eat here again. The service, however, was excellent .

If you are someone that loves babyback ribs this is not a place for you. I had the steak and rib combo.......it was not good. Charge extra for a regular tossed salad in place of the Cole Slaw that comes with all meals. Service was terrible and waited 1.5 hours to be seated. Will not return.

I've been eating at the Bone Yard since 1979 and visited recently to find that the food is still great. The ribs were tender and meaty, the sauce spicy and flavorful, the potatoes crispy. How many restaurants can keep up such consistently good food for so long? Whenever I visit family in Michigan I always make the Bone Yard a... More

We were pretty regular customers at the newest Bonyard on Hall Road in Sterling Heights before it closed last year. It was always a great meal and friendly service. We decided to meet a friend for her birthday at the Boneyard in Dearborn Heights last month. We aren't stangers to this site having ate there many, many times before. We... More

The BONE YARD was a favorite restaurant when I lived in Michigan. I returned to Michigan recently to visit friends and was eager to go to the BONE YARD again. It was a real joy! I almost always got " The Special"... BBQ Ribs, raw green onion, coleslaw, and homefries. YUM! I've had many other food selections over the years... More

We have been going here for many years and we always leave having a good experience. Great food, friendly staff. A couple waitresses have been there for years and always make it a point to come say hello. We've gone here for birthday and special occasion dinners and they always accommodate us.

VERY GOOD "DETROIT" STYLE WET/GRILLED RIBS. However, my personal favorite is the "Boneyard Burger". Order it BBQed / grilled and served on garlic toast. You will not leave hungry.

I've eaten at the Farmington Hills and Livonia locations as well as Dearborn Heights. The DH location seems to have problems getting an order right. I had the ribs which were undercooked and fries which were overcooked and very hard. I requested the ribs well done and the fries soft. Very disappointed since the other locations are so good!
