Ordered the Slawpy Pig sandwich. Other Bono's that I have visited chop their pork in small pieces, this sandwich had many large slices. Still tasty but nothing to call home about.

I have been coming to Bono's since I was a little girl at the Beach Blvd (original) location and can honestly say I think they are the best in Jacksonville. This location in particular has smoke permeating the bldg from years of open pit smoking and just looks and smells like what your idea of a BBQ joint should be.... More

I've eaten at a Bono's before this one and it had left a bad reputation in my mind. I had decided that I might check out the original in order to give them another chance. This visit was phenomenal. The food was great and service was even better. I learned that although the locations all say Bono's the corporate locations... More

First time visiting Bono's. I was really impressed. Food was really good and not dried out. Had a good smoke flavor and not over bearing. Place was really clean and the staff was awesome.

I've been to other locations, but had not been to this one yet. I love the look of the interior, with memorabilia from over the years at the restaurant. The servers are super friendly and attentive, making me feel right at home. I suggest starting off your meal with the corn nuggets. They come out piping hot, so be sure... More

Pecan pie--decent Fries with smoked turkey and sausage--pretty good; liked the meat the most Turkey salad--we... More

Some of the best BBQ you will ever taste and I have had BBQ in a lot of places! The wings, ribs, bbq fries, anything you eat there is awesome! They have some of the best sauces you'll find there. We ate there twice in our week long visit and brought home some bbq sauce. Super good food. Smoke flavoring... More
