Bone’s BBQ and Burger Bar in Battle Ground Village has become known and loved for speciality meat dishes, from traditional steaks and chops to their chicken Marsala, duck breast and gourmet macaroni and blue cheese.
“We’re honored that guests have thought of us as a special occasion restaurant,” owner Dennis Pavlina said. “We just want to go beyond that, so we’ve added a new bar menu, offering burgers most people can’t get anywhere else.”
The new bar menu features a host of specialty burgers including brisket, bison, elk, pulled pork, ahi tuna and kangaroo.
“The cranberry cream cheese burger has been especially popular,” Pavlina said.
My scrumptious signature Bone’s Burger came with a generous lean ground beef patty, caramelized onions, blue cheese, lettuce, tomato and bacon. The onions were just sweet enough to offset the mouth-watering tang of the blue cheese.
Bone’s fits right into the neighborhood life created by design in Battle Ground Village.
One of the original tenants, Bone’s has been serving clients who walk in from the Village, as well those driving in from around Clark County and Portland, since 2009.
“We just love the community feel of this location,” said Pavlina.
The menu assures diners that ingredients are local whenever possible, and Pavlina says he and the staff gather as many ingredients as they can from the Village’s own Saturday farmer’s market each week. From jalapenos to corn, mixed greens to berries, they try to find a use for whatever the local farmers are selling.
