Rhody Gem: Bonetown Burgers & BBQ

June 2021


What it is:

A restaurant and catering biz specializing in hardwood-smoked BBQ, 100 percent Black Angus beef burgers, and creative fare, all made from scratch with
meticulous care. 


Where to find it:

Their brick-and-mortar Cranston digs can be found in the unassuming Phenix Plaza, with tables set up outside to enjoy juicy burgers, or keep an eye out for the bright pink pig flashing a toothy grin on their food truck popping up around town. 


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

A flare for heavy metal infuses this BBQ joint and food truck with edgy vibes, but at its core, you have a couple of chefs who are super passionate about hand-crafting the best entrees possible with slow-smoked meats – and have fun doing it. Dry-rubbed brisket, pulled pork, and St. Louis Style Ribs comprise the classics, along with all the creamy salad and mac ‘n cheese sides that complete the experience, but good luck finding novel creations like Brisket Poutine Egg Rolls anywhere else! Owners Rich Cambriello and Shane Caledonia run a close-knit, lively business, whether you’re ordering from the truck or visiting the shop. Caledonia says, “It’s kind of like Cheers, where everyone knows your name and what kind of food you’ll be getting!”
