Sonny's BBQ is ALWAYS delicious! The ribs are the bomb! But all the sides and other meats are excellent also. Our waitress, Tammy, was great. The staff was friendly with one another and the customers--always a good sign.

Whenever I get a chance to eat here I don’t pass it up! The food is always good! It’s not a heavy smoke flavor, it’s just right! My favorite is the BBQ chicken (all white meat), beans, coleslaw and garlic bread! Jose is a fantastic...More

I have visited this restaurant several times over the years, and the food is always excellent. I cannot overemphasize how great the food is, and at a great value, too!

GPS didn't get us to the restaurant and when we called, the person on the phone was terrible about giving directions, therefore they lost our business.

Never had a bad meal or experience. Great food and service. We usually have the sliced pork it comes with texas toast and a side free ice tea refills. They also have an outstanding tradition. Military and Veterans eat free on Veteran's Day. Thanks Sonny!

All of their smoked meats taste the same as they are all smoked in the same closed smoker and it is completely overpowering.

Nothing special about this place, but always decent, always plenty to eat, big portions. You know what to expect from this chain. Only Sonny's in the area. Love Sonny's sauces.

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.
