GOOD BBQ, BUT IT'S NOT MEMPHIS

Being from Memphis, we love good BBQ. While visiting Florida we stopped at Bono's for lunch. The place was packed, but we were seated quickly and did not have to wait for service. Our food was served in reasonable time and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the brisket sandwich and it was very... read more

Not much flavor. Would expect more but have been consistantly let down with tough tasteless meat and sides that need alot of love.

Staff and side items were good, but the BBQ was terrible! Had chicken and ribs and both were tough, so unless you go to a BBQ place for sides i would suggest seeking out a different place to go.

Bono's is a common spot here in Jacksonville and it use to be my favorite spot. The food is good but not seasoned enough (the ribs that is) the pulled pork is ok,the banana pudding is average.

Of the three BBQ restaurant choices in the area, Bono's wins, hands down. Lovin' the mess! Full slab of baby back ribs, squash, fried corn on the Cobb not to missed. Mix and match platter is superb.

I like well cooked pork. It is hard to beat. Bono's is the real thing. From a certified BBQ judge, you won't find any better.

In Jax you have a pretty good selection of BBQ joints. No matter which one I go to it never beats Bono's. They are hands down the best place for BBQ in Jacksonville. Always great fresh food.

Stopped in on a whim. Parking lot was packed so we took that as a good sign. Hostess told us they were busy but we could be seated. I appreciated the heads up. Service was very slow but i can't complain because we were forewarned. Onion ring app was tasty. Homemade ranch had a funny sour taste. I had the... More

We have been going to this Bono's for years and we have noticed we like this location the best of the chain here in Jacksonville. Alex (our favorite server) is great and friendly. She's awesome!! Look for a coupon in the monthly mailings, and you can get a great deal.
