Try it. You'll like it. I've eaten there on a regular basis and it's always good. Last year, I bought my thanksgiving turkey there.

While on a recent trip, we found ourselves looking for that one place our large family could all agree on. Sonny's got the nod. We walked in with 11 people in all, two were infants. They took us in stride, and had a great plan...More

Went in for a quick bite because we had to get back to base, found that though they were mainly an sit down eatery they actually had good counter service. Then the sandwich was fantastic {liked their brisket}.

You don't notice it at first because you go there a lot. But the food quality does not seem to be the same as before. It's hard to eat healthy when they serve "country crock" and pass it off as butter. That has to be...More

Had lunch there today. Was really amazed by the food. It was fantastic. Usually I am not a BBQ fan but this was really enjoyable. Very good choice.

The BBQ was awesome. The sweet tea was on point. The service had impeccable manners. My only critique is the mac & cheese. It tasted like it came from a box verses homemade.

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.
