This sonnys is still one of the older style restaurants. Wait staff is very good to excellent. Food is very well prepared but salad bar is not user friendly unless your arms are eight feet long. Salad bar needs a rework to be more user...More

I ate here a few days ago and it is very average. I had the ribs which were good but the waitress was much more concerned with visiting with her friend instead of taking my order. I'm from Texas so have fairly high standards when...More

We love Sonny's as they are usually fairly consistent from location to location. We frequently get to go orders from this location and the food is always great and hot but the orders are often not quite right. It's a little difficult to go through...More

Good prices for quick BBQ. Nothing too special but tastes good. Portions look small but it's plenty once you start eating.

We were here 2 months ago and had St Louis style ribs. They were very good. Today I ordered again. The ribs were half the size of first trip with minimal meat and burnt. Fries were almost cold. This meal was poor at best. Also,...More

Typical barbecue food, with average taste. Customer service was very good. Seemed to be quite clean.

Yes - but not contiguous seating. They'll seat you in an area which will have several large tables. It'll actually work out better for you and the servers overall to be in one area. Ii's best to call head and arrange... 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.
