I was at Smokin' Bones last week for lunch. Andouille sausage, made in house, pulled chicken, onion rings, corn bread and the beans between three of us. All of it delicious - hell they make their own onion rings instead of serving those Sysco or McCain battered circles.
Thing is, the place was empty. At 1:30 on a Tuesday. It shouldn't be. I'm sure part of it is the location, Church and Dundas can be off putting to some people, and all the Ryerson students seem to go north and west.
That brings me to yesterday - I've heard from another Smokin' Bones aficionado that their numbers are down. Way down. If they don't get better than they'll have to close the doors at the end of the month. Now I don't mind doing my part to help - eating southern bbq to keep a business going is a win / win to me, but I can only eat so much. If you've been and liked it, or plan to go, now's the time. I'd hate to see one of the more unique menus in town disappear.
