The food, while not particularly healthy, was fresh and good. Service was fast and friendly. Good for lunch or a casual dinner.

When in doubt about eating at the local BBQ joint, you can always count on Sonny's for having good BBQ all the time. Does not matter what you order, it's always good.

Good food, good service and reasonable prices. For example: Ribs for Two - a rack of ribs. 3 sides, garlic toast or biscuits is just over $20! Love this place!

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.
