Good local BBQ

This is a good local BBQ joint, food was good, service was good and quick. The only shortcoming for me was no beef ribs.

Chicken had taste of being reheated leftovers. burnt on the outside. bread was toasted on one side only and it was also burnt. i think... More

This place is good for families or special occasions, Sometimes the food is amazing and sometimes its not. Its a hit and miss Depends on when you go. Most of the time the food is really good. The BBQ sauce is what makes my boyfriend and I coming back.

This was by far one of the worse dining experiences I've ever had. The ribs were dry and tasteless, my hubby got sick from his New York strip. When the manager was advised she seemed unconcerned that her meat might be contaminated. I will never go back to this restaurant.

The Boneyard is a family restaurant that serves outstanding ribs. I have been eating at The Boneyard for several years and have been rarely disappointed. Their IS an occasional 'tough' rack; however, given the number of years that I have eaten at this restaurant (well over 25 years), I can only remember one or two occasions when I haven't been...

Just finished eating our meal from this Boneyard location and I have to say that I am greatly disappointed. This place has certainly fallen from what it once was. The portion sizes remain large, to be fair...but WOW! I don't know if the amount of food you get in a bad meal is even worth it. Once upon a time,... More

I agree with the concensous of the reviewers regarding this restaurant. I enjoyed both the good points (tasty ribs & big portions) and observed some weaknesses (dated decor) Overall yummy ribs & great value so I recommend that you give this place a try.
