We love stopping here on the way through KY. Food & Service are good! We love the pulled Pork & corn nuggets! The food here is a lot better than Sonny’s in the south.

Always enjoy Sonny’s BBQ and this one in Corbin, Kentucky did not disappoint. The brisket was tender and juicy and I love how they do sweet potato with cinnamon butter and brown sugar while my husband loves their baked beans.

We came to Kentucky to visit my son and family and wanted barbecue. They suggested we go to Sonny’s. We were not disappointed. We started with fried pickles and I had pulled pork and my husband had a cheeseburger. Both were delicious!

This Sonny's is located near to the Hampton Inn that we stayed in. Although the parking lot was full they were able to seat our table of 6 right away. Food was plentiful and tasty.

I had the St. Louis style ribs. Very good flavor. Had plenty to eat and was not over priced. Service was good as well.

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.
