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.
