I always enjoy Sunny's, but miss the Brunswick Stew. Great corn bread. Always good barbecue and consistent.

Sonny's is a long time Ocala BBQ joint. This one is recently remodeled. The BBQ is very good Florida style Q. The pulled pork and the brisket can't be beat. If you have a salad eater there is also a great AYCE salad bar.

We come here every so often & it's always delicious. The sweet tea is perfectly sweetened & goes great with their BBQ!

Quick lunch and it was great. They baked beans are out of this world. The brisket can't be beat. Service was professional and quick. I would recommend the restaurant if you're into BBQ

Went with mother, sister, and wife for lunch.. All three had the St. Louis style ribs and I had the baby backs. My mother got up and went to bathroom when food was delivered. My wife and sister thought there ribs were tough. My sister didn't complain and asked for a carry out box and ordered the baby backs. My back backs weren't the most tender, but I didn't complain. When my mom came back she wasn't able to eat them and my sister ask that they substitute the ribs with chicken. Manger came out and made the remark "no one else has complained." They did bring my mother the chicken, but the whole experience was unpleasant. Manager needs customer service training.
