Even though this is a chain, we always stop once on our way south because we don't have anything that comes close at home. Our server Angel did a nice job and we had no other problems with service. We always enjoy the baked beans...More

Food was very good but service was poor. Only two people were answering the phone, seating customers, taking phone orders, and waiting tables during the evening time at 6 pm when the restaurant was pretty busy.More

Sonny's is a chain restaurant that serves good barbeque at affordable prices. They produce large quantities of food which makes it difficult to perfect the recipes for original southern barbeque

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.
