Description: 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.

Food was good, service a bit slow ~ salad bar a bit messy, but there were too many kids "helping" themselves the night we were there!!

Sony's is probably my favorite "go to" BBQ restaurant when I'm traveling or looking for a quick place for a bite to eat. It's definately not the best I've ever had but it is always good no matter where I find one. Consistancy is key here as you always know what to expect and I've never been disappointed...

Local BBQ at reasonable prices. Recently went with my wife for a quick dinner. We bought two dinner plates one was BBQ beef the other was pulled pork, both were well smoked, seasoned and sauced without anything being overwhelming. The sides of baked beans were excellent and the corn and green beans were also a hit.

The Texas toast could use a little work but other than that a great reasonable down home style southern BBQ meal.

We will deffinetly go back next time we are in Florida!

We go to Florida every year for spring break. One thing we look forward to from year to year is eating at Sonny's. There is no Bar-b-que like it in the country. In my opinion, it is the best!!!
