We really enjoyed our dinner. Nice salad bar, ribs and pulled pork were wonderful. Fries great. Small busy restaurant. Would stop again.

Always stay out this way when we visit, and always eat at Bare Bones. Good meals and plenty of it. Service friendly and quick.

Decent bar food options, smelled of smoked meat upon entering. Sat at the bar for faster service as needed to eat before att ending a concert in Moline. Recommend the breaded mushrooms and salad bar.

This was without a doubt "the worst" BBQ place I've ever eaten at. Ordered the Brisket dinner-it was shredded roast. Horrible taste, horrible presentation, do not bother going here. 1/2 PT or less. Yuck

I went there on a Thursday evening around 6:30 and was pleasantly surprised to find the place full! The only place to sit was at the bar, which I would prefer not to do, but obviously other people knew they had good food. I had...More
