This Sonny's was very clean & efficiently run. Server was friendly and helpful. Food was great. Ribs fell off the bone. Salad bar was excellent. Even the bathrooms were clean.

I love the salad bar and all you can eat on Wednesdays. Sliced or shreded pork. Any day is a good day for Sonny's

Take out was easy and quick. Liked the sampler plate. Drink cups were large. Located on a side road that went under I95 and made it easy to get back to our hotel.

Food was excellent and service warn, cheerful, and fast. Waitress was attentive to needs such as offering refills for drinks. Quantity was large in size, hot, and delicious! Sonny's definitely has the best baby back ribs!

This Sonny's NEVER disappoints. The food is always good and the service is always fast and friendly. My only complaint is the brisket... It is delicious, but the serving size is offensive.

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.
