The food was excellent. The atmosphere was fine, televisions in multiple locations. Service was unexpectedly poor. When we first arrived, we considered leaving based on what we witnessed. There were a couple of customers in the kitchen area picking up their food even though there is a completely separate pickup area. These people were looking into all of the different bags to see what was in them. Most of the bags were not theirs, so they were exposing the food for no good reason. But we decided to stick it out. We kept having different servers attempt to deliver items to us that were not ours. Seemed like no one used a table numbering system to keep track of who ordered or needed anything. I would still eat here in the future, but I'm not sure I would order anything to go. Try it for yourself!

Visited the Jonesboro location and the food was delicious. Visited a second time on Memorial Day (didn't order enough food) and a slight mix up on my order (didn't want to come back a third time (online order). Returned the next day and an even bigger mishap, however, the Manager (Sylo) took care of me and corrected my order! The staffed worked extremely hard during the holiday, but they had the best demeanor. Customer service experience with her eased all concerns. Great food and wonderful management encounter.

Food was great, it wouldnt kill you to put a pickle on the plate would it? Service was fair. Bathrooms looked like a warzone! I did see a waitress carrying food on her shoulder that had her messy bun hairdo actually touching the food! Thank goodness she wasnt my waitress!

I ordered the rib and wing plate that came with two sides. I ordered french fries and cole slaw along with the eggrolls and corn nuggets. They left out my cole slaw, bbq sauce, and did not add any napkins or utensils. When I called to let them know, they acted as if I was lying about not including the coleslaw. Who is going to lie about some coleslaw? Anyway, the chicken was not completely cooked and by the time my food arrived, my fries were completely cold. I will not order there again.

It’s been renovated with the new Sonny’s motif, so it’s a nicer restaurant. The service was good and the food was too.

When I go on vacation, I always like to eat at Sonny's BBQ. The pulled pork bbq, bbq beans and garlic bread are all very good.

The pulled pork and pulled chicken were both delicious -so much so that I didn’t even want to cover with sauce. The staff was very friendly. It was a very satisfying lunch. We would definitely visit again when in town.

Ate lunch alone and it was great. The restaurant has been redecorated and looked great. I had the big deal sliced on garlic bread and fries. Yum yum. Very clean place.

They served our order incorrectly, but recovered fairly quickly. The ribs were 5 star, but the chicken and pulled pork were overly spicy and cold, respectively. 2 stars each. The server was inattentive. Sonny’s was used to be one of my favorites, but no longer.

Being from Florida, I’ve been to many Sonny’s. This one is under renovation and starting to look great and modern. Now the food was definitely up to Sonny’s standards, the sauces delicious and the drinks WAY too large. But this one gets five stars (circles) for its friendly employees who thanked us repeatedly for coming in. Felt like Sonny’s royalty!

Driving from Atlanta to Macon and needed a place to get a bite after a long flight. Sought out Sonny's since we have none at home. I had my usual half chicken. It was good as always and since the place was not busy at all the service was good. If I had the funds I would definitely start a franchise near my place in Oregon.
