We stopped by Sonny's about three years ago for a great meal and the hubby suggested we stop for dinner on our travels back home. We should have known better when there were just a few cars in the parking lot. This place looked like it hasn't been cleaned in ages! The floors were sticky and filthy, the salad bar... More

Great BBQ and very convenient location to the interstate and Motel 6 (just across the street from Motel 6). Employees are very friendly and go out of their way to be sure everything is perfect.

Driving home from FL, we kept seeing signs for Sonny's BBQ. I wanted to go there simply because my son's name is Sonny and we can never find anything with his name on it. After going and eating there I was so glad we did! The food was great (I really liked the pork egg rolls!). The staff was so... More

Eating at Sonny's is always a treat because living in Indiana, we are very far from any location. It's a bit pricey for a sandwich, side and drink, but the sweet tea is great. We get sent off with gigantic to-go cups of sweet tea, necessitating more rest area stops, but the whole delicious experience is worth it!

Our waitress Holly K was fast, friendly and attentive. The salad bar was fresh with a great selection. The sliced pork was juicy and flavorfull. All the side dishes were hot, fresh and tasty.

Have been a frequent customer of this Sonny's for years but becoming less frequent. Service is still pretty good and I love their tea. The food is generally inconsistent and usually not that great. The restaurant is in dire need of an update. Carpet is worn out and nasty, walls need painting, booths need upgrading and salad bar could look... More

I have eaten here numerous times and always love the food!! You can't go wrong with it. I always get the all you can eat sliced pork and love it. They are not afraid to bring you more and check on you often.

food always good at sonny`s, as is service, which to me makes or breaks the meal. hardy`s used to have excellent burgers, ours were big but no flavor at all, the chili frys had a tiny bit of what tasted like canned chili.

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.
