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

We ate there twice in our week long visit and brought home some bbq sauce. Super good food. Smoke flavoring... More

Really enjoyed our meal there. We even took home leftovers. I have family who live in Jacksonville. After we ate there, I was talking to them about it. They all agreed it was the best in the area.

Bono's is always a must stop for me when visiting Jacksonville. I have never had a bad meal. I love the pork on Texas toast. The smoky flavor is wonderful. You get different choices of sauces on your table, I enjoy the classic. The grilled corn on the cob is great as well. Took my husband for his first visit... More

Bono's is an all time favorite. Great BBQ and good sides. I usually order the pork sandwich but the turkey and brisket are good too.
