Smokey Bones is introducing a new summer menu that sizzles with a bone-in pork porterhouse, Southern Sampler platter with three types of meat (a charcuterie) , a BLT with a full pound of bacon (yep, that’s right), and Fritos Chili Pie. With Smokey Bones’ 62 locations in 16 states, you’ll be able to delight in the new menu (did we mention there’s a Crispy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich?) whether you are cooling off at the lake or taking a dip at the beach. And, if you’re home, give yourself a break from cooking and treat yourself with Smokey Bones’ classic menu items or try the new ones.
“We are always looking for ways to offer our customers new and exciting menu options,” says CEO James O’Reilly. “As Masters of Meat, we focus on delivering those crave worthy, creative and high quality dishes that our guests expect from us. Let’s face it: Meat Is What We Do. And, we do it better than anyone else.”
