We have eaten here many times but this time was awful. I ordered pulled pork and was told they no longer serve it no fat or bark pieces, take it as is ? My wife always orders turkey and again hard end pieces, skin, etc. as is ? The waitress tried but could not get orders right, ordered dry toast... More

I've driven by this place a hundred times on my way to other eateries in the area when I am on business travel here in Jacksonville. Tonight I decided to stop in. Wow! That sums it up. Service was excellent (Thank you Deborah). Food was amazing. I had the beef brisket, pulled pork and chicken combo with fries and beans.... More

My family and I stayed in the area the night before and saw they delivered but it was after hours. While out we saw it and decided to stop. It was great. The chicken and brisket was good. However, they have the best smoked Turkey I have ever had. If I am back in the area, I will definitely be... More

I have been all over the south east, including Tx chasing down BBQ joints and on 8-23-2016 I had some of the best brisket I have ever had. Whoever was the pit master that morning that cooked the brisket I had at 12pm I want to thank! Even my wife, who's not a huge BBQ fan said it was the... More

We were passing through on our way to Cocoa Beach and decided to stop here for dinner. It was delicious! The service from Crazy Al was great too. He was fast, friendly and very helpful when trying to decide what to eat. Side note, get a bottle of the Sweet and Tangy sauce to go. It was the best sauce... More

The barbecue was great and very tasty. Staff was very attentive. A great place to take the family. A lot of things to choose from on the menu.

Bono's is a regular lunch spot for me. The Bar B Q is very consistent and the severs are all seasoned and very competent. I love the Bar B Q salads and all the meats are good. Brisket is my favorite. If you like spicy, try Reggie's Pit Boss sauce. I'm buying a bottle to take home. If you come... More

Each time I'm in Jax I've stopped in for a good BBQ meal. This time it wasn't so good. Don't get me wrong, the pulled pork is great, but the sides were awful. The Mac and cheese had obviously been on the hot tray way too long. It was grey! The waitress suggested FF corn on the cob. Sounded good,... More

Our family tried the 2 for $22. Platters + bread puddings. The meats were delicious, especially the turkey. The sides were awesome- collard greens tasty but not salty, Mac and cheese creamy but crusty, sweet potato soft and fresh. Service was grand from beginning to end. Server held an rider until one of our party arrived. Place is clean.

Ordered a BBQ salad to go. Asked for sweet sauce and was given one. When I requested a second the woman rolled her eyes, put a second sauce out and said she should be charging for it, told me to read their posted policy and mentioned that I was already getting 3 servings of dressing. I told her to keep... More
