After losing to Georgia Tech, we decided to eat near our hotel. WE chose Bono's. Great choice. I had the Pork Platter with a Sweet Potato and Mac and Cheese. Excellent. Waitress was very helpful in our time of need. Quiet atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Is it possible to order your BBQ sauses for delivery to my home? I was at one of your locations quite some time ago & brought some home, your Sweet & Tangy & your Original 1949 & am about out of both. Would love to be able to purchase more. Thank you.
