We have eat at Sonny's other places before but this one was awesome! The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing! We had been driving all day and just wanted some good food and this really hit the spot!

The Scrumptious Home Cooking, Freindly & Knowledgeable Service, & Atmosphere Are All Top Notch & On Point. Come With An Appetite, Leave Needing A Wheelbarrow Ride Out To Your Car :). Finger Licking Good BBQ. Lots Of Room For All Size Parties

This was our first visit to a Sonny's BBQ and we chose it due to its location near our hotel. The service was friendly with no wait but the food was, frankly, rather pedestrian. My wife had the baby back ribs and I had the...More

Sonny's has always been the goto place for BBQ here in FL. The meat is always consistent, and the sides are great too! Staff are always friendly both inside or drive through. The family meal gives you a little of everything, and that's normally what...More

I have been in love with Sonny's BBQ almost as long as I've been in love with Florida. The sauces are all a little (or a lot) different and sure to please any bbq palate. I've never had poor service or bad food. Brisket, pulled...More

Great BBQ place. We eat in the bar and service is always super fast. Takes about 3 minutes more than the mcdonalds across the street but with 100x taste. Also very reasonably priced too.

Located just in front of the Hampton Inn. Quite rude service and really nothing exceptional. Pulled turkey/pork, salad bar and other usual american dishes. Practical if you stay at the Hampton but really nothing special.

I was there in February and just showed them that I reviewed them on tripadvisor. The okra were awesome. Don't know if they're still doing this promotion....

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.
