Bad to the Bone BBQ celebrated its grand opening celebration for its new 2,500-square-foot event center and general store at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Feb. 23.

Bad to the Bone BBQ co-founders Marty and Mary Wells celebrated the restaurant’s event center, which includes a full bar and outdoor patio, and its general store which includes orders for takeout, a press statement said.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by a silent auction and opportunity drawing with its proceeds going towards Shelter to Soldier, a local non-profit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for veterans, the press statement said.

The Tony Suraci Band took center-stage at the new event center with a rock-and-country blend.

Bad to the Bone BBQ is located at 31738 Rancho Viejo Rd., San Juan Capistrano, and features BBQ items including ribs, tri-tip and pulled pork.
