There's not much good BBQ to choose from in Gainesville. I ate at Adam's Rib Co. yesterday and wasn't impressed. I went to Bono's today to compare and ordered the same thing...pork, ribs, mac and cheese and baked beans. Bono's was way better. The meal was overall much more flavorful than Adams. Also, Bono's has a drive thru so that... More

This place is located in an area that is so busy it took us almost a half hour to travel to Bono's by car from our motel, which was a little more than three blocks away. Avoid travel to Bono's during rush hour. We were sadly disappointed in the level of service, and the quality of the food. Tasteless unsweetened... More

Waitress was very friendly, somewhat unfamiliar with specials with " everything is real good and a great deal". Ordered pork plate and pork sandwich each... More

We had lunch here on our way to Atlanta, and we are glad we stopped. Great food, big portions, quick service. If we lived near here we would eat here often!

Stopped in Monday evening while driving to Tallahassee. First thing you notice when you walk in is the amazing smell of the pit! Second is the friendly welcome, our server (didn't catch his name) was super nice and obviously knew a lot about BBQ. The food was so tasty, especially the beans and stew! Big portions and cheap, especially the... More

Slawpy pig sandwich! It was delicious, we liked being able to see the guy working the pit & meat. The mustard sauce is very mustardy , the hickory red had a little kick but the sweet n tangy was just right. Portions were not skimpy! We were traveling home from the beach & stopped to eat. It smelled so good.... More

I ordered a meal to be delivered by doorstep delivery and when I received it I only got a half rack instead of a full rack of ribs. I paid $22 for a half rack?? When I called to explain this to the manager she basically called me a liar stating that her cook said he did the order right!... More

Went for lunch and got their BBQ Feast for 2-3 and for the 3 of us, it was plenty! Service was fast and food came out quick and hot. Wait staff was very friendly and will certainly go again!

We were looking for a place close to the La Quinta Hotel that offered good food we could carry out. The brisket was very good and the portion was generous. If you want a family friendly, home cooked meal in a casual restaurant, Bono's is a good choice.
