Description: Sonny's BBQ offers a variety of barbeque meats, including St. Louis Cut Ribs and Sonny's Signature Baby Backs, Pulled Beef Brisket, Pulled and Sliced Pork, Sliced Turkey, and Chicken, all smoked slowly over a hardwood fire. Today, with 126 restaurants in nine southeastern states, Sonny's BBQ is one of the largest, most popular barbeque chains in the country. Our secret? We cook it up slow and serve it up fast and friendly.

We like our BBQ. Had the brisket and pork sandwich. Both were very good. However, I do not understand why the garlic bread is larger than the bun. I did not want to cross flavor garlic and good bbq, so was disappointed to see the size difference for basically the same sandwich. Maybe you get the same meat portion. They... More

I eat at sonnys all over the state and this is a good one! What can I say all the meats are great and if your a fairly big eater as am I. Order all you can eat meal, the chicken is great, sometimes the white meat is a little dry. The sides are good. Check it out.

I went today for lunch at Sonny's BBQ and sadly, this will be my last time visiting this particular Sonny's BBQ. Actually, I will have to think long and hard before going to any Sonny's BBQ. Ordered the All You Can Eat sliced pork. The waitress informed me they were running low and couldn't do all you can eat. Really... More

This Sonnys BBQ is not among the top. Rough around the edges. Food average. Does not have the Happy hour specials like so many of the others in the franchise. Service average.
