Food was excellent and service warn, cheerful, and fast. Waitress was attentive to needs such as offering refills for drinks. Quantity was large in size, hot, and delicious! Sonny's definitely has the best baby back ribs!

This Sonny's NEVER disappoints. The food is always good and the service is always fast and friendly. My only complaint is the brisket... It is delicious, but the serving size is offensive.

Food was good, service was good. We stopped in as we were passing through. It met our needs. It was close to closing time but the staff was very courteous and accommodating.

We had heard of Sonny's from our southern friends but had never been. We're not disappointed! Amazing BBQ! Pulled pork and brisket were our favorites. Corn bread great too. Highly recommend.

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.
