Our family is a big fan of Sonny's. This location has a great group of servers. The food is very good and prices fair. There is something for each member of our family of 7.

Great BBQ! It's not heavily soaked in sauce. Lightly smoked and you pick whatever and how much sauce you like. Sonnys offers some healthier options to choose from as well. I got the sweet potato which was moist and sweet. They also have a few...More

Had to try Sonny's. The beef brusquest was okay but just not up to expectations, no where near as good as Lucille’s here in Vegas or numerous road side stands in Baltimore, but we tried it and enjoyed the meal.

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.
