“What it does have is the smokiest baby-back ribs you've ever tasted (a full rack of 12 with sides is around $21), pulled pork, turkey, beef brisket, chicken BBQ plates, and delicious sides.”

"How good is the barbecue at 12 Bones? Good enough to lure the vacationing Barack and Michelle Obama back to the River Arts District." Full review
Expect a long wait, though, before you get to enjoy the slow-cooked, smoky and tender meats, or succulent sides from jalapeño-cheese grits to smoked potato salad.
