Think three clicks up from a typical fast food joint, no Golden Arches but consistently the same and remarkedly unremarkable! Hard to screw up French fries and pulled pork. Salad bar is decent, and you will end up with left overs so you get what...More

The food was good, as expected from a chain. The server was friendly and attentive. We were a party of 5 with 2 teenager boys so she was hopping for refills...GOOD WORKER ! !

Stopped around 4:45 for a late lunch. Big mistake!! Table was sticky. Waiter never said hi/my name is... "what are you drinking?" is all he said. Food was cold. Salad bar was the only thing we enjoyed. If the server would have asked us we...More

We stop at lunch while passing thru the town. We were hungry. Place is clean. Ribs are great as in typical Sonny's. Service was next to instant and very pleasant. Enjoyed our food. Will stop again if life bring us to this part of Florida

First opened in 1968 this is not a chain but an independent which is always nice to see. A bit of a cross between diner and fast food but clearly very popular with locals. Good food and lots of it, the beer was a bit...More

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.
