Very fine BBQ

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

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.
