I always make this a stop when I head back to Detroit. I have been going there since they opened. Just stopped again and this time did take out on the way to the hotel. The order was ready at the time I asked for and the food was still as good as when they opened many years ago. Some... More

This facility is know for its barbecue ribs, but I go for the broasted chicken. They also offer barbecue chicken, but the brosted is outstanding. When the broasted chicken is ordered they advise you that it will take about 20 minutes as each order is cooked on demand. I usually get the 2 breast dinner which includes cole slaw and... More

My score would be a 4 and my husband would give them a 10. So it's a 5. Ribs, the way hubby and I like them. You will have to work to get them off the bone - they don't just fall off, it takes time to eat them. Nice sauce with a good flavor. And the potatoes, they are... More

I have tasted broasted chicken from a variety of Michigan restaurants. By far, Bone Yard has the most perfectly juicy and crispy chicken. The price is less than I would have expected for the amount and quality of food given and they even offer coupons for single dinners and group coupons on line. I can't comment on the ribs, as...

Back in the day the Bone yard BBQ was the place to go - It is apparent that over the years the food quality has slowly migrated downhill. It wasn't all bad so my review is based on our experience. My wife and I stopped in while taking a Sunday drive in our Classic - we decided to order the... More

The restaurant was dirty (dust/dirt on flat surfaces and in vents on ceiling) which I can forgive if the food is good. This food wasn't. The ribs were tough and the cottage fries were unevenly cooked (some crispy, some still raw). I've eaten at a lot of chain and local BBQ places all over the country and this one is... More

We split the rib dinner for two and added some extras. The ribs were for the most part tender and very tasty. Didn't need the BBQ sauce as the rub did it all. Get the onion rings, the coleslaw and the baked beans but leave room for the chocolate pudding cake.

While on a trip to Michigan recently we decided to try the Bone Yard. My father used to buy take-out for us when we visited and so it had been close to 10 years since we tried it. WOW! Better than I remember! Ordered short end pork ribs with cole slaw, fried potatoes and garlic bread, So much food I... More
