3007 Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach, FL
A lot has changed in the way Americans eat since we opened in 1992. As a family owned and operated restaurant, it is our goal to offer enough variety so large groups and families with diverse eating habits can get together in one place for a memorable meal. Meat-eaters, of course, are drawn to Mr. Bones for our world famous BBQ ribs, pulled pork, and BBQ chicken. All 4 of our sauces are made in house and we even bottle and sell our original BBQ sauces and hand-mixed dry rub in the restaurant. We have a pet peeve about restaurants that claim their food is “homemade,” or made from “scratch.” Have you ever noticed how restaurant sauces and soups taste the same? That’s because they are the same, bought from the same supplier. A packet or tub is opened, water is stirred in, and it’s called “made from scratch.” Although we do use suppliers for our basic staples, our potatoes, yams, and fresh coriander, for example, don’t come into the restaurant in cans, jars or readymade tubs. Bones food is homemade—and it’s no surprise to our customers, because they can taste it.
