After weeks of scouring the Chow Hound boards for places to eat in and around Anna Maria, I cannot believe that no one has mentioned Mr. Bones BBQ.
Absoulutely without a doubt, some of the best grub that you can find. Now, I must say, I did not have their BBQ, BUT their ribs and pulled pork looked excellent. They have EXCELLENT sauces.
For lunch, I had curried rice with pork. It is the same pork they use on their sandwiches. Served with a side of some kind of chutney (I think). 2 take home containers of that plus their sauces in my fridge.
My girlfriend had a sausage sandwich. It was homemade sausage in the form of a patty maybe 4 inches wide by 8 inches long. EXCELLENT. Best sausage I have ever had.
To top it off, they have this casket filled with all different types of microbrewed beers. My Fav. You just go up to it, pick out what you want and drink.
Check it out the next time you are in that area, you will not be disappointed. I gaurunntee!
