“Great little place with great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Wagon Bones is a little place on the corner that could easily be overlooked, but do yourself a favor and give it a try. The folks that run it could not be friendlier and more helpful. The food is really, really good, too. We have been there several times and have had the ribs, the brisket, the pulled pork, mac and cheese, cole slaw, and potato salad. Everything we have had has been delicious.

I will consider using them to cater an event - the food is consistently good.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We found this little piece of heaven while looking for a different restaurant. It is a small place on the corner. Inside is very clean and nicely decorated. Nothing fancy though. Parking lot is small but you can park on the street. What caught our eye is the BBQ smoker outside. We both had ribs. Their side dish of mac n cheese was very good. The baked beans were cooked with pieces of pork, not ham. They had a great flavor. The cost per person was $12 so I knew we would not receive a full slab of ribs. There were 4 very meaty pork ribs on our plate. The BBQ sauce was great, not a real thick sauce.

We will return.
