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.

I was just passing through Brandon and went to Sonny's recommended by another traveler. I had turkey, baked tater and broccoli, all of which were excellent. The turkey serving was huge so I had enough for the next day. My only complaint is they don't serve beer and I really needed one after a long day of driving.

Soft baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter. We visit Sonny's regularly for family meals. Also take out and catering are available.

Chicken and sweet potato are on my Weight Watchers diet so I can enjoy this meal and still be good. I love the salad bar too.

The soup and salad bar is my favorite. It beats out all other salad bars. We always get the corn nuggets as appetizer. They have numerous different kinds of Bar-B-Q sauce. We can never pick a favorite so we just mix them all together.

I had the baby back and the sweet rub ribs....loved them. The beans were good and no problems with them afterward...... Corn was a little soggy, but tasty and I was surprised to get it in December! I received Texas toast which was good, too. Waitress was prompt in seating me and taking my order and checking on my needs. They really do a good service and are excellent at cooking BBQ!
