This is a great place to eat. Very clean. Nice staff. The food and the variety of food was totally awesome. You get a huge portion of food at a very reasonable price. Would strongly recommend this place to anyone. Smoked turkey is delicious.

Besides the excellent smoky barbecue, Sonny's (all you can eat) salad bar is our favorite in the area! They have baby spinach, chick peas, good dressings (I like the Honey Mustard), crunchy toppings like fresh croutons and sesame seeds, and for dessert items, good chocolate...More

Got a Beef Brisket Sandwich chopped on garlic bread. I was really disappointed. It was not what I was hoping for. It had a lot of fat in it and was dry. I prefer the sauce to be cooked into the meat rather than add...More

Typical for Sonny's. ok. If u like Sonny's you will not be disappointed. A typical chain that does it cookie cutter style but does it right.

We went again to Sonny's after church last Sunday. Normally we split the 1/2 chicken plate with 2 sides. Plenty for two normal appetites. This week they had brisket (sliced & chopped) on the menu. Haven't had it there before but as usual we split...More

This was an excellent meal with a variety of BBQ choices. Easy drive-thru and great service. I had a Sweet Carolina that has pulled pork and coleslaw inside the bun with a sweet BBQ sauce that was delicious. It was a good lunch.

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.
