Ribs , brisket and chicken great. The pork was dry. Most of the sides were great. Green beans tasted like heated from a can- not good.

My husband had a chicken sandwich with beans which he said wasn't too bad. I had a brisket sandwich with coleslaw and they were both awful. The brisket was tough and too smoky.

As soon as we opened the car door you could smell it...that wood-smoke bbq flavor filled the air. We were welcomed by friendly staff and seated quickly. Our group of five ordered everything from ribs, pork, brisket, to a burger. It all came out cooked to perfection! Sides were great as well; we had French friends, mac n cheese, baked... More

Had some very good (naked ) wings! They are smoked and nice size, not like bar wings. Service excellent and friendly! Came across this place on way back to hotel and was pleasantly surprised. We'll be back if we are wver in this area again.

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.

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 good. Tender and well smoked. I... More

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.
