Loved everything we ordered, ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, french fries and cole slaw. I have eaten at many Sonny's and this was the best one. So glad we stopped.

Lunch with a friend waiting on car repairs was an enjoyable experience in an unoffensive atmosphere. Was surprised they had Brunswick stew, although it wasn't on the menu. Even more surprising, it was really, really good! My sliced pork was good, if a little fatty....More

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.
