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 have been to several Sonny's BBQ restaurant and think they have some of the better pulled BBQ in the area. I have also tried their ribs and the sliced BBQ and find those two just average, hence I stick with the pulled pork. The interior is typical BBQ joint and the service is very good.

I haven't been to Sonny's in a long time because it is only average. I would go to Bono's before I would go to Sonny's.
