The menu had changed. A lot of options gone. Additional surcharges added. The meal wasn't bad. But the waitress was inattentive throughout the meal - I shouldn't have to look for you when the beverages need refilling, you shouldn't make me feel rushed 15 minutes...More

Ok, Sonny's isn't the best BBQ I've had. What Sonny's is consistent food and service. We asked about the dog friendly outdoor covered patio at this location.

Sonny's is consistently a good place to go for bar-b-que. The prices have gone up some, but you can always rely on good food. I usually get the pork which is great. The chicken is a nice treat and the ribs are always delicious. We...More

I love to visit and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. The baby back ribs are awesome. I also love getting the fries in the metal server. They are always hot and great.

It's been awhile since we have eaten at Sonny's because we had not been happy with it but we gave another try tonight and was pleased with our server Brittany. She got our order correct and kept checking on us. Our food was very good.

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.
