Loved the collards and cornbread. I had the rib tips with potato salad. I would definitely come again. They also had fresh brewed sweet tea! Didn't expect a full bar but they have it all. You do need to navigate some stairs.

Boney's is a great little place to get a high-quality barbecue lunch in downtown Denver! The meats are expertly spiced with really fantastic sides. Without question I'll be back soon!

Love the food, service and right adjacent to the 16th Street Mall. Everyone working there is so friendly and professional. Great food from the rib tips to the brisket to the sides! Definitely worth stopping by!

Tried this on a suggestion as one of the best in Denver. It was good, but not with repeating. The staff were friendly and helpful. Beans were good, but kinda sweet. The sandwich was good but came with too much sauce.

Asked a local "where is a good local place to eat around here?" he replies "Boney's Barbecue". So off we went down the street and around the corner, then down the stairs, then around the corner. Found it. Very, Very good BBQ. My buddy and...More
