CARRY out & catering

Pickles and Bones is a carry-out only restaurant that also offers catering services. We honor the craft of well prepared barbecue by cooking only with all-wood fire. That's a big deal. In addition to the high quality smoked meats the sides are made from scratch and the bread is baked fresh every morning. We give you our best every day!

Josh & Nicole

We started Pickles and Bones Barbecue with the dream of bringing a high-quality dining experience into our community and the desire to operate our own business. Using our experience in fine dining we set out to source the finest ingredients possible and utilize traditional cooking techniques to create food that set us apart from the crowd. We have a love for great food and great service and were confident we could deliver both even if we started serving out of a tiny trailer in 2015.  We opened our brick and mortar carryout in 2017: we have picnic tables out side and offer catering for businesses and families. Over the past four years we have grown Pickles and Bones Barbecue into a neighborhood favorite with the intention of always looking for ways to give back to the community that has supported us since day one.



One of the things that drives our passion for barbecue are the roots crafted in old school cooking with fire. Authentic BBQ is smoked low and slow with wood as the only heat source. That means no propane, no gas, no electric, no compromises. We smoke all of our meats outdoors in offset smokers known as “stick burners” using a blend of cured red and white oak .

Great owners and dedicated staff. The food is the best BBQ you’ll find in this part of the country. I highly recommend the collards, burnt ends, banana pudding, the mustard sauce, and pickles. But everything I tried (even the coleslaw, and I hate coleslaw!) was amazing. It was akin to eating BBQ in the south, and was a real treat. Can’t wait to return!

Pickles & Bones catered a family meal for me this past week, it was terrific!! Brisket, pulled pork, both delicious and best ever brisket! The sides were fantastic, pimento grits, collard greens and the cornbread was fabulous with sorghum butter. Thanks so much, also loved the spicy pickles. Will definitely use you again for catering, not to mention just feeding the family when in the Milford area!! THANKS!!

We used Pickles and Bones BBQ to cater a CE Class that we were teaching and they were amazing. They were right on time, set everything up, and the food was great. Everyone really enjoyed it. We will be recommending and using again for future events and classes.  Thanks, Pickles and Bones!
