I ordered brisket sandwich and it was very good. Served the way I like it, without sauce. Sauce is provided on the table. I got to try my wife's order of ribs and I found them to be good, if a little tough. Although I know some people prefer a little "chew". Overall pretty good.

We have eaten at other Bono locations, and this one is just as good, with one exception. The pork sandwich was not up to par. Did not taste very fresh and did not have much of a smoke flavor. Tried the brisket for the first time, and it was great. I'm still not completely sold on their sauce selection, and... More

Great food, and excellent service! It was mainly close to our hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised by how good it was. You won't be disappointed, if you're looking for BBQ.

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
