Authentic-Traditional “Southern Pit Bar-B-Q” Comes to Arena

A new partnership brings Bono’s authentic-traditional southern Bar-B-Q experience to the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Arena guests will be able to enjoy Bono’s favorites, such as smoked pork and turkey sandwiches as well as some of Bono’s classic southern side items, along with SAVOR’s great food and beverage services.

“Adding Bono’s southern flare to the wide range of cuisines already served at the Arena by SAVOR enhances our overall guest experience,” said Robin Timothy, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing of SMG Jacksonville. “We are excited to form this new partnership with a popular and well-respected Jacksonville-based company. Our guests will enjoy Bono’s offerings for years to come.”

Bono’s has been a staple in Jacksonville since 1949, when it started serving its authentic, slow-cooked southern Bar-B-Q. Bono’s has started bringing its offerings at the Arena serving at the main concession area, located near sections 103 and 104.

“All of us at Bono's are extremely excited about this opportunity,” said Joe Adeeb, Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Bono’s Bar-B-Q. “For years, our legions of fans have asked us to set up in the arena and we look forward to serving our award winning Bar-B-Q to all of the Arena guests.”

SAVOR Jacksonville will work closely with the Bono’s team to bring the authentic Bono’s delights to the Arena.

“SAVOR Jacksonville is proud to partner up with this local iconic Bar-B-Q restaurant to enhance our guest experience,” said Mike Kenny, Director of Food and Beverage of SAVOR Jacksonville.  “The Bono’s brand is a great addition to our food and beverage program.  Our goal is to continue to enhance our guests experience with quality food and top-line service.  Come enjoy the show and leave the cooking to us.”
