Originally we went to the Foundy Street location, but decided to drive to the other location because the line was out the front door and very long (i.e.: 15 people waiting in 95 degree weather). You can get very fast service at the new Sweeten...More

We had a bit of trouble finding their new place but the food was as good as ever. Skip the line and get take out. The micro brewery next store lets you eat there and no waiting outside in the sun.

Terrific food. Line moves fast at new location. Plenty of room. Staff great as before. Missed photo of the Obamas.

We got pulled pork and brisket, both of which were mouth-wateringly awesome. Available sauces also have something for everyone, so no palate will go left behind. Sides were good, but not great. As much as I wanted to love the corn bread since it actually...More

Great food and fun atmosphere. Loved the spicy blueberry barbecue sauce. Be sure to write your name on the wall with the markers provided. Large portions. My husband and I split pulled pork, potato salad, corn pudding, corn bread, and pecan pie. It was all...More

Twelve Bones' NEW River location is 5 Foundy, next to the WEDGE. It isonly open on weekends. The Arden location is a bit more of a drive but IS open on Saturdays.
