Best at Broasted

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... read 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

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

I have been going to this place for 30 plus years and on easter sunday the ribs were so tough and chewy that I gave the whole short end to my dogs. I spent $50 and was really disappointed at the quality of the ribs. terrible. seems like the ribs are either fabulous or lousy and dry - no in... More

Forget the food for a second. The steak was what I expected for the price. The ribs were tough and chewy. But there is no restaurant that work with the speed and organization in their carry out. Also. It doesn't hurt that they have some gorgeous girls working their. The Filipino hostess is the first face you see. She greets... More

I'm not sure it's a waitress issue or the owners! The place looks the same it did 20+ years ago, no improvements and it's outdated. Even with that said it is no reason for the waitresses, hostess, people working to be not friendly, they are not mean, they are just not friendly and clearly the waitresses of this establishment need...

Full service menu - not just ribs (but they are very good). The portions are generous, we always take home leftovers. Service is fast, friendly and accommodating. Carryout is available. The BoneYard BBQ has been an award winning Metro Detroit favorite for over 30 years with a diverse menu including burgers, salads, and seafood selections. Check their website for coupons!
