Bare Bones is mostly a take out business. It does have some eat in seating and does a nice catering business. The ribs are especially good. Chicken, pizza, gumbo and all kinds of sides round out the ample portions options.

Great pulled pork. And great ribs. The atmosphere is so authentic and southern. Love it! And very reasonable priced. Definitely one of the most soulful places I've been. And great service too!

Good ribs and chicken. Once you have eaten brisket in Texas nothing can come close to that. Friendly and clean. Good beans too.
