My Dad used to take us to the original Southside location 50 years ago and I'm still a happy customer. The BBQ cooks long but is ready quickly which is especially nice for takeoff ordering. Of the two beach locations, I'm closest to the 3rd Street (A1A) restaurant. Fast, friendly service with clean, family friendly, rustic Southern style decor. Prices... More

The fried corn on the cob lacked flavor and tasted like burnt oil! The side of salad for $3.79 was nothing but a fist full of chopped iceberg lettuce and two little package of Ken's dressing!!!

Easy quick fast service with delicious barbecue food. The corn nuggets were very tasty. The banana pudding was so delicious. The kids had great kids meals. The pulled pork and beef brisket and smoked sausage dish was delightful. We went back to times because it was so convenient to the beach.

Went there for lunch. Great tasting BBQ. Wonderful flavours. Friendly wait staff and the food is great. We were there with 16 of us for a business lunch. Everyone said that the food was delicious. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Generous portions. Will definitely be back.

I have been eating at Bono's for a long time starting at their original location on Beach Boulevard. A friend from all the way back in high school in the late 1960'ies, always wants to go to Bono's when he comes to town. And he always buys a few bottles of their sauce to take home when he leaves.
