I used to eat Sonny's all the time as a kid. Going back recently reminded me of that. Some things don't need to change. Great food. Great service. Great prices. I love Sonny's and always will.

Most places you get turkey it's dry. This smoked turkey was nice and juicy. We also ordered the fried pickles, they were ok I've had better ones. The rest of the meal was great. Unsweet tea was also very good.

We shared the Sonny's Sampler (pulled pork, briscuit, ribs, and smoked chicken) came with two sides and garlic toast. The briscuit is our favorite, and it didn't disappoint. The ribs were delicious, the pulled pork tasty, and the chicken moist and juicy. Our server (Ashley)...More

After a drive from South Florida, I stopped in Kingsland, GA for the night and went to Sonny's for barbecue. I chose a Sweet Carolina Pork Barbecue Sandwich with potato salad and a coke. The sandwich was dry with about half as much cole slaw...More

This restaurant maintains the regular Sonny’s quality for dining. Consistently, the service is poor. From having to make multiple requests to long waits to actually receive the bill. This place usually turns a 30 minute lunch into an hour long odyssey... after experiencing this 3...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.
