The new restaurant is really nice and the food was just as good in this one. I have never written a review before but would like to say an employee named "Sam" was one of the best promoters of the restaurant I had ever seen. She was very helpful in ordering and had some great suggestions. Keep up the good... More

Yeah I know. Why did I eat a hamburger at a BBQ restaurant. Well, that was not the plan until I saw one being served to a patron next to me. He suggested to give it a try and I did just that. I had also ordered a side of fries and green beans. Let me tell you my friend,... More

I stopped here thinking it would be an expensive barbecue place but it was actually a great price for the food you received. The smell is very enticing when you walk through the door and they also have military discounts which is important as I am a veteran.

Everything is excellent here! The only thing I don't care for here is the banana pudding. Service, atmosphere, and food is excellent.

Overall we enjoyed a wide range of entrees as there were four of us and we shared, family style. All was superb but the brisket stood out to me, it just fell apart in my mouth and was sooo tasty! The sides were also excellent and I especially liked the fried corn on the cob. First I had ever even... More

I have eaten at this establishment for many years now. They just went into a new building. Unfortunately with this transition this Bonos went electronic. From comments I suspect this was imposed by the Franchisor. This is a huge mistake from the wrist mounted electronic ordering boards to bring the credit card mini reader to your table. What a total... More

Stopped by for lunch with a friend. We both ordered smoked turkey...one plate and one sandwich. Meat was tender and juicy. Sides were plentiful. Four great housemade sauces. Very affordable. Brand new building. Waitress was attentive but needs to learn how to use her pay-day. I'll return! Great for carryout too...and a drive thru!!

The bbq is good as usual but the service was slow today. When our food came it was cold, I'll go back but this was my lunch companion's first visit.

We enjoyed very good barbecue. Restaurant located near Days Inn hotel, not far from the beach. We will return there next time we are in Jacksonville.
