Just exactly what was needed after a 500 mile drive day. Prompt & courteous seating. Delightful & knowledgeable waitress. Good beverage selection - less bottles & more taps would be nice. Great food!

Good food and quick service. The stew is excellent. We normally get pulled pork and chicken with stew and will take home stew for later.

It's a nice restaurant but still a chain. I was surprised by the good service and the excellent ribs. We ordered a new entree that was a variety of smoked and grilled meats served on a charcoal grill that keeps things hot. It far surpassed...More

I can not answer this question, but I recommend that you call your nearest Bones and ask them what their policy is on this subject.
