By popular demand and just in time for Father’s Day, Smokey Bones is bringing back the Bone-Fire, a barbecue meat mixed grill featuring Smokey Bones’ menu favorites. Items include its award-winning baby back ribs, sirloin steak, smoked chicken wings, smoked sausage, chicken breast, and served with sides of potato wedges, grilled vegetables and its secret recipe Bone-Fire sauce.
The Bone-Fire is served over hot hickory coals on a dedicated tabletop grill and is made to share. It is available for pairs of two, or groups three, four or five people. Prices vary from $35 to $65 based upon the size of the group sharing the Bone-Fire.
“Smokey Bones is excited to bring back the Bone-Fire in response to popular demand by meat lovers who are returning to our restaurant dining rooms,” says Smokey Bones CEO James O’Reilly. “We are America’s Meat Masters, and we’re excited to bring this one-of-a-kind meat lovers experience back to our dining rooms as we reopen across the country.”
Smokey Bones has also introduced a range of new health and safety measures to protect guests and employees. Following guidance from the CDC, National Restaurant Association, OHSA, and state guidelines, Smokey Bones’ dining rooms have been reconfigured for social distancing. Guests are now offered single-use paper menus, and cleaning procedures have been significantly enhanced. All Smokey Bones employees are provided masks and gloves, and have been re-trained on new operating guidelines.
“Smokey Bones places the health and wellbeing of our guests and employees as our top priority,” adds Hal Lawlor, COO of Smokey Bones. “We have made significant changes to protect the health and safety of our employees and guests, and we proudly welcome our local communities back to enjoy our delicious meals, great people, and famous service.”
To ensure guests aren’t asked to gather in waiting areas, the restaurants will also ask diners to wait outside or in their cars and be called in so they can go directly to their tables. All condiments have been removed from the tables and will be served individually upon request to eliminate touch points.
For those who prefer to continue dining at home while still supporting the restaurant, Smokey Bones will continue to offer takeout, delivery, and curbside pick-up for its Monday BOGO Wings, Wednesday BOGO Pulled Pork Platters, Family Feast, Rib Feast and Kids Eat Free with entrée purchase. The restaurant will also offer its new take-home meal kits called Bone Basics, which include uncooked meats and sides with all the ingredients to make Smokey Bones at home on the customer’s own schedule.
