In the Cedars the catchy-named little nook, Off the Bone, provides customers with some authentic finger lickin’ good barbeque. Despite its deliciousness – there’s not a ton of variety, just your standard pork ribs, beef brisket, sausage and smoked chicken – all which can be converted into a messy, yet scrumptious, sandwich. The menu also provides several hearty sides including baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad.
Space is limited, so Off the Bone prides themselves on convenience and timeliness, which makes it an ideal spot to grab a quick bite or take out.
Despite the lack of comfort or ambience (stark metal tables and a static atmosphere) I would still highly encourage all locals to try this hidden treasure.
The staff welcomes you with a warm smile, the barbeque sauce is absolutely mouthwatering with a deliciously smoky aftertaste, the service was fast and efficient, and the portions – two helpings of a brisket sandwich – resulted in a full and satisfied belly. Sure, the ordinary selection won’t keep me coming back week after week, but with the great experience I had, give me a month or so and I’ll be back.
