The owner is OCD about cleanliness and it shows. The food is excellent. The staff is knowledgable and very friendly. Their sweet sauce can't be beat. The coleslaw is like Sonny's used to make it, fine and very creamy and very delicious. The Babyback ribs...More

Typical Sonny's BBQ. Normally I get the baby-back ribs but chose to get the dry rub pork ribs. I felt that the dry rub had very little taste and was expecting more. My corn on the cob and garlic bread was good. The service was...More

Great lunch. Just looking for some BBQ off the interstate and totally lucked out. Not only was the brisket fantastic but the sides, beans, cole slaw and cornbread were great as well.

Went to inner with friends. Variety of food choices were made for dinner. I chose chicken. Unfortunately it was very dry. Baked beans had an off taste? Probably would not choose again.

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.
