Wife and I had lunch after attending an event in Port Orange. I've been in almost a dozen different Sonny's locations, and they're always good.

You used to be able to get a good priced meal at Sonny's. No more. They have raised their prices to no longer be the corner barbq. Ridiculous prices. We have stopped going. The Port Orange Sonny's is clean and nice, too bad is overpriced.

Great food, fast service and reasonable price. The only thing that was bad was the slippery greasy bathroom floors and the area going into bathroom tiles were slippery.

Their BBQ is just great. Most people think ribs are supposed to fall off the bone. Real BBQ ribs don’t. Trust me I was raised on real BBQ in Oklahoma. Their brisket is real good. Same for the pulled pork. Loved the sides as well.

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.
