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.

Consistently good. Love it that they have a drive-thru that is really fast. They usually have baked sweet potatoes, which we love.

We like to stop at Sonny's BBQ when we're traveling. This location did not disappoint us. Our server Hannah was efficient and friendly. My husband and I got the salad bar, which is typical at lunch. Great cornbread ! The salad bar ingredients were fresh. I have enjoyed crab salad and macaroni salad at other locations and these were not on the salad bar at this location.

We love Sonny's BBQ. Since we have lived in NC we are not close to one. We stopped in Palatka for the night and went to Sonny's for dinner. Our server was excellent and the food as always was perfect. We lived in Homestead Florida for quite awhile and Sonny's was a favorite. There are a lot of BBQ places in NC but no one makes better sliced pork or ribs than Sonny's. I got the AYCE sliced pork dinner and not only the pork was good the french fries are always done just right. The garlic bread is my favorite so I can make a great sliced pork sandwich. The wife had the baby backs and the rack was big enough for lunch the next day. As always, Sonny's is the best
