Not necessarily the best but surely hot, eatable and plenty for eating. We were happy with the service and staff. Although not dissatisfied I would give it an average rating. But hey try it you may love it.More

I have stayed away from Sonny's for a long time because The meat was so dry. This time we ordered baby back ribs and they were delicious. Baked beans were great. They have won me back for their ribs.

Only second best because I make the best at home :) Had the rib platter with beans and slaw. The ribs were perfectly smoked and would place high in a formal rib smoking competition. The beans were very flavorful and the slaw creamy and tasty....More

I've often thought that the price of sandwiches at the Sonny's BBQ brand were over-priced. Come on -- nearly eight bucks for a pork sandwich! But, have to admit that the grilled garlic bread is delicious as the cover of a sandwich. The wait staff...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.
