I like Sonny's platters and sides; I recently tried their 3-way Pork (pulled, ribs and sliced) and it was good! Great corn on the cob and their coleslaw and beans are pretty decent. If you like ribs try their all you can eat, is a good deal!

Nothing amazing here, but the food is always good and we enjoy this spot to meet up with family. The waitstaff are all extremely friendly and helpful and the salad bar is always well maintained.

I give Sonny's four stars because of consistency. Yesterday Jamie, our server, was prompt in greeting us and always present when we needed her, this is was despite her having a full section. I assume this because she had four tables. Other days it takes a long time to get service at all. Our food was excellent and management was... More

Food was good, but the service was horrible. The waitress was unaware of her surroundings. The time to replenish your ribs on the all you can eat was horrible.

Stopped at the Oviedo Sonny's for lunch. Decided on the Brisket and got it sliced. It tasted good, however, it was very dry. I would not order this again. Their large Ise Tea is always fresh.

The best thing about Sonny's is that whether you're in Oviedo, Sebring or Valdosta, you will get the same well prepared and great tasting BBQ. My favorite is the all you can eat pulled pork while my wife loves the chicken or the brisket. Use one of their wonderful sauces or not, you'll get some great flavors. When we bring... More

Awesome service, we had a large order as usual. Everything was correct, they gave us a bunch of each of the sauces because we have a big family and nobody likes the same thing. Food was out of this world. There was not a crumb left in any of our boxes. Very filling and big lunch sandwiches. We had the... More

So I came here with a couple of friends for dinner-ish. I had the all-you-can-eat St. Louis style ribs with the sweet sauce, not the dry rub ones. I had the BBQ beans and french fries as a side, and I chose the cornbread. Also, I had sweet tea, which was on point, like it better be at a barbecue... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch on our way out of town and glad we did. Both of us ordered the brisket sandwich that was so moist and delicious, bbq sauce wasn't necessary. Added on a salad bar for a few dollars which did not disappoint...everything was fresh. Kim provided friendly and hospitable service.

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.
