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.

“Generous portions and nice service”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

In town for just one night - Sonny's was recommended by folks in Ocala so we figured to give it a try. Food was good and plentiful - sides were also generously sized. Reasonable selection of beers.

“Felt very welcomed”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Everyone enjoyed their food. We liked how the tables have all the napkins and sauces you will need. But the most outstanding aspect was the sincere, friendly service from everyone we encountered.

“in titusville -- let's do bbq”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

we have a sonny's bbq in titusville. this is one of the restaurants we visit once a week.

the restaurant has somewhat cabin(ey) feel to it's decor. a large, well stocked, always being cleaned and refilled, salad bar with lots and lots of choices runs along one long wall. cold, clean, glass dishes are available for each visit.

although we have had many items on the big menu, we usually have one of the following: the big deal (which includes a sandwich, a side and a drink all for one low price), the other is the bbq ribs. sometimes we cant decide which to order. the drinks are mega sized and refilled as you want.

the tables are set up with several types of bbq sauce, a large basket filled with clean napkins, also a large basket of hand wipes. very convenient for the type of food.

also offers a senior discount that you have to ask for.

like bbq - love - sonny's bbq.
