My husband and I ordered a bowl stew. They brought back 2 bowls 1/4 full Never offered a refill. We were seniors and only received 10 per cent off, having to ask for that. I had coffee and had to ask for refill. We arrive just after 11 a.m. so it wasn't a rush hour. I do not recommend the... More

Sonny's has always been a restaurant that never was as good as I had hoped, but always good enough to get me to return with that same hope. It had been years since I had stopped at a Sonny's, but I saw this one and tried to satisfy my hope once again. Same old same old. Rating this particular one... More

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed Pulled Pork Sandwich and Smoked Turkey Sandwich, hot crinkle fries and Ice Tea. Sandwiches were loaded and buns were lightly toasted. A generous portion of Hot crinkle fries were provided and they were delicious too! Our server was on the ball and refilled our drinks as needed. Clean dining area and courteous staff. Good job...

We recently ate lunch there after Church on Sunday. They were fairly busy. I believe we arrived right after the rush because the flooring under some of the tables really needed a good cleaning. The food was good, especially the sweet potato I ordered as one of my sides. I ordered the pulled pork plate and it was very good.... More

We came in for lunch and enjoyed it. My friend had the Rib platter and I had the Pulled Pork BBQ. The food was very good. The service was good as well. The only issue we had was our drink refills.

Went here for supper hoping for great BBQ. Hadn't been here in a while. Previous visits from over a year ago. Then they had a fantastic salad bar that was well taken care of. This visit it was missing several items and very messy. Lettuce was mostly white and stems. Appeared that children may have been playing in it as... More

first off the food here has always been suspect. any bbq place with a salad bar will tell you that. the pork is uneatable. saying that in a bbq place in the south is tantamount to nailing the doors shut from the inside. for years the only reason i darkened the door here was for the all you can eat...

Bad pulled pork sandwich that was filled with gristle and fat. Horrible sliced pork sandwich that was at least 40% fat All you can eat ribs were limited to the initial order then provided burnt food as the only ribs remaining. New customer seated and served fresh great looking ribs! Recommend closure of this location!!

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.
