We've been trying the other local area bbq spots, for our money this is the best choice. The ribs are meatier, sides hotter, sauce flavor better. Wife had ribs, I had brisket...very good all around, even the price was low...we'll go back for sure..

Cute reasonable restaurant but a few flaws in my opinion. I ordered a pulled pork platter, when it arrived it was chopped pork and had a lot of fat and skin. My server explained that their guests like chopped better so that's what they serve unless you request pulled. The menu says pulled not chopped. She gave me new pork,... More

Bono's has always been my favorite at the beach until this past weekend. I went at dinner time around 5:30 Saturday night. I ordered a large pork sandwich on a bun and a rib dinner. The girl rang up a large pork plate w/bun. When the person putting together the orders questioned it she said that is what I ordered.... More

Yeah I know. Why did I eat a hamburger at a BBQ restaurant. Well, that was not the plan until I saw one being served to a patron next to me. He suggested to give it a try and I did just that. I had also ordered a side of fries and green beans. Let me tell you my friend,... More

I stopped here thinking it would be an expensive barbecue place but it was actually a great price for the food you received. The smell is very enticing when you walk through the door and they also have military discounts which is important as I am a veteran.

Bono's did an outstanding job for our son's Wedding rehearsal dinner last weekend at Jax Beach! I worked with Ronnie the manager months before to plan, we wanted a casual atmosphere and had the dinner (40 people) on the outside covered dining area. There was more than enough food, family style from chicken, pork, beef, and ribs to delicious sides!... More

Great pulled pork sandwich. The sweet corn nuggets are a must have. I really like the new restaurant. It seems more spacious.

Everything is excellent here! The only thing I don't care for here is the banana pudding. Service, atmosphere, and food is excellent.

Overall we enjoyed a wide range of entrees as there were four of us and we shared, family style. All was superb but the brisket stood out to me, it just fell apart in my mouth and was sooo tasty! The sides were also excellent and I especially liked the fried corn on the cob. First I had ever even... More
