“Ah, its a themed restaurant!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Dropped in with my wife and a friend, not realising it was a themed restaurant. The beer was cold, the brisket sandwiches nice and filling, the waitresses pleasant and helpful. We all smiled a lot, and all in all had a nice evening.

“Great Food, in spite of atmosphere....”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Recently another Mom and I took our young daughters to Bone Daddy's to eat. The restaurant was in the parking lot of the hotel we were staying. First impression...Hooter's with Tatoo's. But, our experience was very pleasant. We were seating in the dining room away from the bar. The food was excellent. Baby Back Ribs were so tender and flavorful. Steak was cooked to perfection.
The sides were equally tasty! Not an extensive wine list, as you might imagine. But, plenty of beers to choose from. Overall, the food is worth the trip!!

“The "Hooters" of BBQ with the same problem - the food.”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I don't know why so many places in Austin think that by slapping women in barely-there outfits makes up for food that just isn't any good.

I came here with my boss and with a colleague for lunch since he "loooved coming here". One step inside showed why; sure the women were beautiful and friendly (by design, of course) but you can't be jaded by that to make up for the food that looked like it had been left over from the night before. Turkey shouldn't be chalky and dry, and there is such a thing as overcooking ribs - falling off the bone and having zero flavor (hence why everything is slathered in BBQ sauce) is one of the signs.

The price was kind up there, but since I was being treated, I couldn't say too much. In this exercise, the waitress signed her name with hearts and kisses, but that wasn't enough to save my gut for the next day. If you want bbq that's good without any fluff, visit Rudy's across 183.

“Bad food, worse atmosphere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This may be BBQ's take on Hooters, but it's even worse as far as food goes. The wait staff are dressed in impossibly tiny outfits that made me question the sanitary practices of the kitchen. I will absolutely not be back and had we not been with hungry friends, we wouldn't have even gotten a table. Our server signed the bills "Love, Amanda." Completely over the top.
