1st time visit and happened to go on their first day back open. Lucky me. Only ordered the ribs with sides. Perfectly cooked, great smoke taste with a light sauce (ordered with Brown Sugar sauce and other rack with Carolina Red). Ribs were pull-off the bone done. All I can say is perfect ribs, so glad we stopped here instead of our regular joint. Will definitely be back. All of the sides ordered, including the cornbread, were great. Please don't pass this joint up if your on the hunt for ribs.

Their food is SO GOOD! They just catered my wedding this past weekend and they were so easy to work with! They even came out when they were closed (we had a surprise 12in of snow) to prepare our food for us. Would recommend this spot every time! We love 12 Bones! Not to mention - so many people at the Wedding said they LOVED the food!

Really good food! I have to consciously eat slower that I may give proper appreciation for what I'm consuming. The portions are good, too. I was stuffed for hours after my last meal there. The environment there is super casual, but not too dumpy.
