I am always amazed when I see such good reviews for Sonny's. When we had to relocate after Hurricane Ike I was pleased to see a local place so close to my home. Food is not anything to brag about, and I find the owners to be abrasive and annoying. My husband and I went there twice and he had the mufallata, I had soup that might have been good, but, was so hot my tongue was fried and could not taste it. We sat at the bar that time. Had to listen to how the owner buys the best beef and then grinds it up himself, blah, blah. So, the next time we went went we ordered the burgers, they were good. So, then decided, since we don't like the atmosphere, I would only call in to go orders. Trying to be sociable, I told the owner I have several places in town that I recommend to tourists and I highly praise your burgers. He was very rude and said they have many other things that are better. Of course, higher price items. Mama's spaghetti, gumbo, etc.. The gumbo is okay, but not worth the price, as I told them on the phone I only wanted it as a pre-dinner appt. and would it serve 2 people. What a laugh, about a cup of gumbo. I don't even know how to describe how this place makes me feel, uncomfortable is my first thought. They try to pull jokes on you at the register, close several times a year for months. Just wierd people. If you are from a really big city and want to listen to old rednecks blathering on and on, maybe this is the place for you. I live here and will never go back. They are so clueless, that when I have called in an order and then went to pick it up, duh? when you called, did you mean to order it? So, then had to wait for it to be prepared. Would make a great local bar as they have draft beer, but, don't want to sit somewhere where the owners obviously senile wife sits beside me and utters nonesense.
