Enjoying drive up CA-1, we made emergency restroom & BBQ stop at Bones. Looks like biker bar, but too clean and bright. Good menu of BBQ and burgers. House made chips with everything, not great. Beans peppery, not fatal. Brisket sandwich generous, well smoked and sauce-free. Wife said mac & cheese was made by Velveeta, Inc Two good sauces on table. Service spotty. Had to nab our own flatware & napkins from nearest empty table. Server did not know wifi password ... Irritating since zero AT&T signal in the town.

Stopped in on they way south. Place was hopping, and staff looked overwhelmed.

We ordered and waited and waited and waited.

Whenever we asked our server for something, a refill, more napkins, the check....it was an eternity before the request was handled and usually, handled by another server, not ours.

People seemed to be enjoying their food, but everyone seemed to have the same issue with service. People were getting up out of their seats to track down their server or grab another fork or napkin or container to go. Saw this many times.

Luckily, we weren't in a hurry. Everyone was friendly, but service was frustrating and slow. End to end, we were in the restaurant almost an hour and a half (not by choice.)

Good luck.

Had a sampler of excellent barbecue at the roadhouse that was just right. Not too little or too much food and a selection of mild or hot sauce on the side to use. The sides were terrific too. Service was very good, helpful and not overbearing. We were also not rushed to finsih and turn the table over. If bathrooms were inside; not having go outside and around the building to seperate entrance would give this an excellent rating.

Recommended to us by a local...did not disappoint. Meat was tender with a great smokehouse flavor. Sides were great as well. Some dishes had very large portions, so come hungry. Their BBQ sauces had great flavor but I found them a bit runny. Check it out if you're in the area.N
