Decent barbecue!

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.

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
