We used to frequent Sonny's when we lived in Florida, and found that some could vary in quality. The Sonny's near MCO is happily a good one. We swung by around 7 PM on a Friday night and were seated immediately. Service was good, the salad bar was fresh, and the food tasted great after a long day of flying.... More

I only like the Smoked Sausage and the Pulled Pork at Sonny's. I ordered a pound of the good stuff, added a couple of rolls and a sweet potato. The sausage with the sweet BBQ was very tasty. The rolls were surprisingly good as well. The Sweet potato was just a sweet potato. I came to learn later, that not... More

Very good, and at a great price! I got the brisket sandwich on garlic bread and it was delicious! They had a nice selection of bbq sauces, and the sweet tea was amazing! If I could get one thing back home in Massachusetts, it would be more sweet tea. If you are in the area this is a great choice!... More

Went here with my two eldest sons for dinner. As we never went a Sonny's before and had not planned this visit upfront we were not sure what to expect. The restaurant itself looked good from the outside and OK on the inside. As to be expected from the name the served BBQ food with a variety of Spare Rib... More

It is a Sonny's BBQ. What more needs to be said? But Expedia requireds 50 characters of clatter so here goes. Sonny's provides exceptional BBQ at a reasonable price. The employees at this Sonny's were very pleasant and efficient. I would have no reservations about eating here again. My main problem is that they are not closer to my house.... More

Sonny's BBQ chicken keeps me coming back to this restaurant when I come to Florida. It was great again this time. However, this restaurant should have finished cleaning their floors with bleach before they opened for business. This did not make us want to eat.

We dined at this sonnys restaurant on a Saturday night around 8:45. It was pretty dead for a Saturday night! Husband had the chicken and ribs which he really enjoyed; daughters and myself had Caesar salads. Nothing really bad about the restaurant but nothing spectacular to say about it. It was an average restaurant.

Love Sonnys, but had a really poor experience at this one. Arrived late morning and ordered a carolina bbq sandwich and fries. The bun was hard as a rock, the meat was several different colors of "icky". Wondered if it had been leftover from day before. First time I ever had to send anything back at a Sonny's! I informed...
