We have been here many times. Son got something different. He always gets sliced pork. Today he got brisket sandwich with fries and Mac n cheese. Overall he was happy. Pop got pulled pork and mom got stew. Great service.

We go to Sonny's rather than independent local bbq restaurants so my wife can get the salad bar. Other than Ruby Tuesday's, it's one of the only restaurants that still has them. It's not where you would go if the best bbq is your goal,...More

The food was pretty good. I tried the end brisket and it was good. The cole slaw was good but I wasn’t a fan of the baked beans. One thing about this place, you won’t leave hungry. The prices are also very reasonable. The service...More

Sonny's was a very joyful experience! The food was excellent and our waitress was very friendly. Arrived close to closing time so was not sure what to expect food wise but we were served the best BBQ I have had.

We were in town for the FMCA Rally and kept having trouble finding places that weren't out of everything. We went to Sonny's and everything was delicious, hot, served quickly, and the young lady that waited on us did an outstanding job.

It had been awhile since I have eaten at Sonny's. Most around me has closed. But I've always been a fan of their food. At this location everything was good. Had a nice waitress. Food was just as good as I remembered.

The restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. They kept the wait to a minimum. Only issue I had was the chicken was a bit dry.

Looking for a quick late lunch on our way home, and not wanting another burger/chicken joint, we decided to stop in and try this location. Most Sonny's in our area have closed and for good reason. To our surprise, both service and food were above...More

This restaurant has a very country feel. As you walk in and look around, it’s a little plain but not too plain. It has plenty of seating and ample space, so you definitely do not feel cramped at all. We were seated and almost immediately...More

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.
