Nothing to write home about, with this BBQ. Just another chain, where Average BBQ is severed. But there is not much competition in this area.

Recently went to Sonny's for lunch as we live near by the restaurant. It was by far the best we have had since we were in Kansas City, MO. The ribs were so tender and flavorful. Service was suburb. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We have experienced the cold meat issued at other locations, but not this one until now. There must have been an issue in the kitchen because the food took longer to arrive and the meat was cold. The potatoes were hot, so I'm thinking the...More

You have to remember that this is a chain. We had a nice meal here. Good sized portions, quality service, and very clean. A good sized glass of quality iced tea. Thanks

My wife and I frequent this location quite a bit. The food is almost always good ( it has arrived cold on several occasions but replaced promptly) and the staff is friendly.

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.
