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.

Good smoked meats, endless pitchers of excellenty sweet tea which was not overly sweet as some sweet teas are. Nice salads. Sometimes they have a big salad and dessert bar which if fun and good. But the barbecue sauce is sickenly sweet without a lot of flavor. Now that is my personal take on the sauce, but many must like... More

Sonny has fantastic selections and you get what you expect in terrific homemade BarBQ every visit. The service is fast and courteous, and the sides are always fresh and tasty. Puller Pork and ribs are outstanding.

This is a chain restaurant which has great ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Very close to Interest 95 and just a few miles from the Florida Turnpike. This one is on Route1 near Virginia Avenue. Definitely worth the stop. Also a large salad bar.

I recently got a BBQ Pork Sandwich on Toast with crinkle cut fries to go and it was pretty good. The pork was moist and tender and the fries were nice and hot! Keep up the good work and I will be a repeat customer!
