Sonny's is not as sexy as some of the more high end BBQ joints(kinda seems like an oxymoron but hey) but I like their food and they offer a good value especially if you have a large party. This is a casual restaurant with a...More

I do order out often from Sonny's. When company from out of town comes to visit we eat sandwiches and ribs are great.

If you're in a Sonny's coverage area, you pretty much know what you're going to get. It's not amazing BBQ, but it's always pretty good and it's darn cheap. We get a lot of Sonny's catered at work and it's usually pretty decent. You get...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.
