When you stumble across a restaurant with the slogan ‘Really Wicked BBQ’ you know it’s going to be good! Boneyard Grill has graced Toronto with its second location of mouth-watering BBQ eats.
BoneyardGrill is known for their baby back ribs made with a signature secret sauce that includes over 20 ingredients passed down from an old South African family recipe. The menu also includes burgers, wings, sandwiches, salads and much more.
The new location at Yonge and Lawrence has a neighbourhood-friendly vibe to it which is welcoming to the BBQ restaurant scene. I find a lot of the trendier BBQ joints tend to have a bit of a superior attitude and the service can be lacking. Thankfully the service at Boneyard was extremely efficient and everyone seemed genuinely interested to find out your thoughts about the food.
I ended up trying many items from the menu and was quite impressed with the flavour and quality of each dish. The wings were cooked perfectly and the meat fell right off the bone. The sliders were juicy and full of flavour and I actually ate them with no condiments, they were THAT good. The baby-back ribs were of course my favourite. The meat was unbelievably tender and the ribs weren't doused in powerful BBQ sauce which was nice. The fries were not my favourite which I'm ok with since I would only come here for the BBQ items anyway.
Boneyard Grill is a casual spot for the meat-loving type and although salads and sandwiches are on the menu, you have to come here for the BBQ’d goods. Their food is reasonably priced, portions are huge, and flavour is not an issue!
