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.

Stayed at hotel across the street for a month following Hurricane Mathew and ate at Bono at least once a day and as never let down. You really need to try everything at least once to fully appreciate the excellent variety. I had BBQ Sausage Sandwich, naked wings, ribs (both types) on several occasions, the 2 and 3 meat platter...

Had the 3 meat combo with 2 sides, brisket, turkey and sausage were all good. The coleslaw was a little lacking but im picky. Good service and didnt have to wait long to be served.

I came here for a quick weekend getaway. The hotel was modern and clean. The staff was awesome. So friendly and helpful. They have a happy hour which I didn't partake in. They have a kitchen with a carryout style service. There is plenty of sitting room in the lobby. Pool table and a bar. Perfect location. It's not on... More

Bono's is a small chain of BBQ restaurants. Their wings were perfectly seasoned, smoky and with great texture - juicy inside, with small crunchy bits of fat outside. The beef brisket was also great. Both meats were great without any BBQ sauce, but 4 different varieties were available. 5 stars for the protein. Sides of baked beans, potato salad, and... More

I ordered my meal but when I arrived at the window, the rude lady said we will not honor the coupon but we advertise only to get people in. I thought that this was fraudulent, and deceptive.The Manager refused to come to the... More
