The baby back ribs from 12 Bones check all the boxes—they’re tender, crispy, and caramelized—but they also add something new to the mix: wildly creative flavors. Rather than sticking to the typical vinegar-based Eastern barbecue sauce or tomato-based Lexington style, 12 Bones instead chooses a third option: sauces made with blueberry-chipotle, Cheerwine, and pineapple habanero. 

While ribs are the star dish, you can also get beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey, and chicken. There’s also the adjacent 12 Bones Brewing, where you can fill up on crisp lagers, stouts, and everything in between, making it a great stop for eating and day drinking with a group. On a sunny day, take your meal to the outdoor picnic tables, or stay inside where it’s airy and simple and look upon the blue mural of Anthony Bourdain as you eat.
