AS you enter, you are greeted nicely and (at least we were) seated quickly. Our waitress was Nicole and she was super. Wish more waitresses were like her, energetic, checked us to make sure our tea, water were filled, food served quickly, hot, and delicious....More

Sonnys in general is consistently what you expect. The food is good but not great. But, is is fair for the price. This location is one of the best run ones. It is always clean and service is very good. Quick at lunch.

Well managed and clean restaurant. Nice people surround you in this neighborhood eatery. It's less expensive and larger portions compete with the other local BBQ joints. The name is what attracts regulars here. Their product is consistent and they always have good service here. Easy...More

Wow, I am not sure what has happened to Sonnys. Once upon a time, long ago they had good BBQ, in fact very good BBQ. In my opinion they have been going downhill for years now, but we decided to give them a try to...More

Sonny's is a chain, and the food is good. This isn't a unique BBQ joint, but it's clean and consistent and the prices aren't bad. The salad bar is a nice addition. We got pulled pork and turkey and both were good, but not great....More

We've eaten here often over the years. Not just the Oviedo location but others in Central Florida. Quality is consistently good and it's nice that they have a full bar with table seating. Love the unlimited Salad Bar.

I like Sonny's platters and sides; I recently tried their 3-way Pork (pulled, ribs and sliced) and it was good! Great corn on the cob and their coleslaw and beans are pretty decent. If you like ribs try their all you can eat, is a...More

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.
