Came here for a quick business lunch. Had the half BBQ chicken option with two sides. Best chicken I ever tasted. It was smoked and also barbecued to perfection. The selection of 4 BBQ sauces was also great. Very reasonably priced. Thanks!

I came in for an early dinner on Saturday afternoon and was delighted at the quick service and especially the flavor and presentation of the Baby Back Rib dinner. The cole slaw, Beans, and Cornbread were equally as good. Also, the portions were generous; I did not leave Sonny's hungry. And, the cost was very reasonable.

Attentive staff and really good bbq made this a fairly quick, inexpensive dinner option. Pulled pork is excellent and they have the sauces in bottles at the tables which is nice. Would dine here again.

Ordered pulled pork sandwich, it was awesome! Service was great and menu had a lot to offer, even for lighter fairs.

We chose Sonny's since some friends suggested this was a must eat while in Orlando. I had the full rack ribs, fries, sweet tea and 4 different sauce options. The ribs were excellent as well as the service. I'm not a little guy and was not able to eat everything...although it was perfect for a midnight snack. Eat at Sonny's...you... More

Service was decent...Susie did ok but I have to ask because I think they overcharged me for my meal. Which they did...they didn't give me the discount like they were supposed to. They were emphasizing their burnt ends for something to try. So I did...never usually disappointed with Sonny's but steer clear of the burnt ends. Just a good way... More

We love Sonny's and have eaten at several different ones. Usually they are great, but this one was horrible. It took over 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee. Our food took over 40 minutes to get to the table and the restaurant was half empty, so it's not like it was busy. The soup was barely warm. So... 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.
