Took some family here for something other than seafood during one of their visits. We all had a variety of their selections and every one of us really enjoyed the food. Cost was very reasonable and the staff were very friendly and tolerant of my in-laws language barrier. Definitely going to go back and try some items that I missed... More

My American husband was hankering for some barbeque and Bonehead's lived up to his very high expectations!

Great barbeque. Lots of food, the best sweet potato chips ever. The meat is moist and tasty and the mac n cheese is great. You definitely will not leave hungry.

My love and I stopped into Bonehead's BBQ for dinner today as it has been sitting, taunting me across the street from his apartment all week. Nice little place. Cute small-time family atmosphere. Max seating for the restaurant seems to be about 20. Prices are reasonable. I had the brisket, rib and sausage plate which came with a mountain of... More

Saw this restaurant and a TV show. Did not disappoint. Excellent service. Pulled pork was great. The mac and cheese was the best I have ever had.

I should first mention that a few months back, I toured several BBQ joints in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. I have to say that Boneheads doesn't really compare to those places, but they tried. We ordered up a meal of pulled pork and sausage to share. We would have ordered brisket but they didn't have any at the time. Meat... More

Finger licking good is right! Their Beef brisket was as tender as it gets and the Bbq Sauce was delicious. The #1 part: Their BBQ baked beans! Strongly recommend the 2 meats combo; Great value for the price.

The ribs were great, I had a 1/3 slab which were 4 good sized ribs and I really enjoyed them. It came with cornbread and 2 sides - I chose coleslaw and tater tots. The tater tots were great, haven't had them in years and the coleslaw was great as well. It was lots of food for under $20.00. Ate... More
