What makes The Bone so good? We'll let you in on our secret... there's no generations-old technique or high-tech equipment fueling our fire, it simply starts and ends with the ingredients. From our Certified Angus Beef Brisket to our Locally-Sourced Fresh Produce to the Hickory Logs Smoking our Pits, when you enjoy a mouthwatering platter from The Bone you know you are getting honest, no-frills barbeque.
