If you sell someone on something, you persuade them to be enthusiastic about it.

Isn't 'and buy it' necessary after 'about it'?

No. The expression means "to convince someone that something is worthwhile".

I regularly eat Korean barbecue- I'm sold on galbi and samgyeopsal.

We have too many lawyers to embrace the idea of setting a pit of hot coals in customers' tables and then serving them beer.

(I've had it elsewhere and it is delicious.)
