Boonies' cherry-bourbon barbecue sauce is the greatest source of pride for the eatery's culinary artists, who paint the homemade specialty onto a smoky canvas of slow-smoked ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. The finger-licking sauce also stakes its claim inside Boonies' brawny signature burger, which also enlivens bites with brown-sugar bacon and pepper jack cheese. Diners can alternate between sips of domestic brews and bites of chopped-chicken sandwiches or dive fork-first into a serving of beer-battered fish. Boonies opens Monday-Saturday at 4PM where multi-genre live music electrifies the air on select nights, while open-mic nights encourage visitors to show off their vocal chops, heartfelt poetry, or ability to take apart and reassemble a microphone.
