We went here for an early Sunday dinner. The food and service were both very good, as it usually is. Portions were not skimpy, and didn't leave there hungry. Will go back, again.

I go to this Sonny's quite often. I have been to other Sonnys when I'm out and about, but I have to say, this one is the best. Better service and better food.

Chain restaurant. The ribs were tougher than mine so stick to the chicken. The staff is fantastic so if you get the ribs do not take it out on them.

We love Sonny's we have eaten here for years and have never had a bad experience. What is really great is when you want to stay in but still have amazing BBQ you can use the drive through 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.
