Stopped for lunch, had the BBQ chicken. The food came quickly and was very tasty. I will definitely eat here again when I'm in the area.

We seated 8 people on 2/12/2016 and had a really good dining experience. Having 4 kids from 6-16 normally is challenging but the food quality was excellent so everyone was content. I will return each time we visit Easley because the food is so good.

Sonny's BBQ in Greenville (Easley) is well worth the stop. The food was wonderful and the service was superb. I shall return, to quote MacArthur.

My experience here was awful. Sliced pork Fat and greasy reheated pulled pork. Usually the food is good, but it has been a while since our last visit. This place has really went downhill!

Description
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.
