I’m an NC BBQ fanatic and Love most all Q’s. This was very good stuff. Not perfect but definitely with the visit and reasonably priced. Pulled and sliced pork were actually excellent. Ribs were good but I like mine falling off the bone and these...More

The great smell brought me in and the food keeps me returning! Wide variety of BBQ items but the sides are the stars of the show. Service is always fast and friendly. Strongly recommend this restaurant.

Been a Sonny's customer for 20 years but they have gone downhill fast. Food quality has gone down and prices have gone up. This location seems now to be staffed by teenagers that do not know how to serve customers. Three bad experiences lately and...More

Picked up a $12.99 Rib and chicken combo for lunch. Ribs were dried out with two pieces of plastic stuck to them. We're they fresh or leftover and reheated? Mac n cheese was mush. Suspect it was a reheat too. Chicken might have been freshly...More

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
