If you go to the one on Racetrack Road, they have homemade specials every day, so be sure to ask them what's on special. Their meat is also better than other Bono's I've tried, but they are all consistently good. Their fried squash is so yummy, and their homemade Ranch dressing tops it off. Yes; major fattening, but every now... More

Was in Jacksonville on business and our hosts brought us here for lunch. It was terrific! I ordered the Bo-Hawg -- barbecued pork with cheese and sausage on top. Wow. Plenty of sandwich for the price, nicely smokey and very tasty. I only tried one of the sauces -- it was pretty mild but nice. The mac and cheese side... More

Great smoked meat. Really smoked, not the "oven baked" stuff that masquerades as BBQ. The portions are huge. The sides are genuine southern cooking at its best. Not a pretentious place at all, but just great for filling up on delicious food at reasonable prices. I only wish there was something like it were I reside.

Had to find a place to eat while visiting a friend in a hospital nearby. Stopped here in a small strip mall and was VERY pleased! Three of us ordered their stacked pulled pork meal, two with collards and the third with fries. This was about the best pulled pork I have eaten and the portion was more than ample.... More

The waiter was the least polite I have ever come across and it felt like every employee hated being there. The food was inferior in quality and tasted like rubber. This is definitely not the BBQ place to go!
