Have eaten here a couple of times recently and the experience was very good! The service was quick, professional, and the wait staff anticipated our needs. The servings were large, and the barbecue was excellently prepared. Loved it. I have been going to Sonny's restaurants for years all over the state of Florida, and this is definitely the best one!...

We could not believe the amount of food for the price. There were 8 of us including 4 kids and we had more food than we could eat for under $60. The pulled pork, ribs and baked beans were delicious. We also loved the sweet tea. Service was also excellent. Waitress was friendly and efficient.

We hosted our office Christmas party of 30 and had Sonny's cater the venue. I have to say that the food was delicious, hot and perfectly prepared. Their staff and servers did everything, yes everything from start to finish and even cleaned up. Our guests who travel the country and enjoy barbecue all loved the food. Everyone ate to their...

BBQ seems to be the rage everywhere in our country. We were looking forward to our visit to Sonny's, but we're disappointed. My brisket was VERY dry, and ribs that others had ordered were dry too. Beer was cold. Maybe it was an off night, but since the service was also slow, I think it may be due to lack... More

My hubby and I feel we can never go wrong with Sonny's. There is consistancy throught their entire chain which keeps their food great, no matter where. The only downfall was my corn on the cob was well "water-logged". Our server was very efficient and friendly and we had a very nice dinner!!

Sonnie's does a good job cooking bbq. It's not outstanding but it's got good taste, good meat, and it always tastes the same. The sides (vegetables, coleslaw, etc) are not necessarily fresh or taste homemade. The cooked veges taste like they came from the freezer and the coleslaw is chopped small with lots of mayo, more school lunch style. The... More

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.
