“Everything is great”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

Have been there 3 times and each dish was excellent. Nice service along with nice clean atmosphere, and good seating. Teriyaki chicken, sirloin, and ribs are all consistently cooked and loaded with flavor. Prices are exceptional for what you're ordering. A must go for any visit within the area!

“We had a decent meal but I would want to try a different restaurant on our next visit.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

The advertised " ribs that fall off the bone" had my mouth watering. When we walked in, I was dismayed at the brightly lighted open room and the cafeteria style tables without tablecloths. There wasn't even a papercovering.
The menu had some variety & we ordered a good white wine to go with his chicken and my half slab of ribs ($14). The coleslaw was great, the chicken was enjoyed, & the ribs were tangy. The ribs lacked the richness of sauce that I like. I asked for sauce on the side & promptly got a thin, somewhat oily mixture that was too spicy for my taste. The service was fine and friendly. Oh, the meat did fall off the bone.

“Great ribs!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The ribs here were delicious and the service was good and friendly. They did not get an excellent rating because they are a little low on atmosphere, but it is Mt Airy and not NYC.

“Wonderful ribs”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This place has great food and wonderful ribs. They just fall off the bone. It stays busy so a reservation may be the best bet.

“Our Favorite Restaurant in Town”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We don't head to Mount Airy very often, but 13 Bones is definitely our favorite place to eat when we're there. The food is always good, the servers are knowledgeable & friendly, & it's very reasonably priced. Try the BBQ Cheesy Chicken...it's awesome! So are the homemade chips.
