MR. Bones BBQ -Have a beer from a coffin?!?

No that’s not a typo, Mr. Bones BBQ off Gulf Drive makes grabbing a cold one an entertaining experience. Not only is their BBQ hands down the best on the island and in town, but also their HUGE variety of beer is placed upfront in a coffin for you to take.

Mr. Bones BBQ Coffin of Beer

Trust me it’s not as creepy as it sounds, in fact it feels quite normal in the Mr. Bones atmosphere to just simply drink a beer from the coffin and not even think twice about it.  If you enjoy some well made barbecue and having a fun dining experience, don’t be afraid to come in to Mr. Bones.
