We found this place through Tripadvisor. Its cheap, delicious and theres lots of it. The quality of menu is great, we all had something different, and it was all tasty. The drinks are enourmous and kept getting refilled. Great waitress, very helpful, and very entertaining. A good cheap meal out!

Went with friends visiting Orlando. Competition Ribs was a limited time order and they were delicious; add them full time! Prices are very affordable. Banana Pudding was excellent. Friends enjoyed what they had, chicken, brisket, Babyback ribs. French fries came out not very hot or warm. This seems to be a repeat complaint here.

Obviously we go to Sonny's for the amazing BBQ - usually we order through the take out window which sometimes has a bit of a wait, but its expected considering it isn't really "fast food". This time we decided to sit down inside. The service was good - I give it four stars only for the previous times we are... More

I love Sonny's and always like to eat here when in Florida. Great value for our family of 5; however service was sorely lacking at this location.

I live in the North and MISS my BBQ - so when in FL I always try to get to a Sonny's because I can expect very decent BBQ and a great salad bar. During my recent business trip to Orlando I visited this Sonny's location twice and was NOT disappointed. Very friendly and helpful wait staff. Great salad bar,... More

I have dined at Sonny's Bar B Q from Gainesville to Florida City and this by far is the worst. Took me forever to get waited on. (Lunch time). Ordered pork and it was cold. The french fries were as hard a rock. I practically had to beg for a refill of tea. Then I placed an order to go.... More

We went out of our way to drive here after reading the many reviews on Tripadvisor. I can honestly say it was worthwhile doing. Food is very good, large portions and reasonably priced, seems to be a popular place with the locals. Our party had the ribs, pulled pork and Kids ribs, all of the food was really tasty. Service...

Dropped by twice for all you can eat ribs $13.99 while my partner had the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich lunch deal for $7.99. Food was good, service was quick. Sodas were large and no need for a refill.

Along Semoran Blvd. near the airport in the hotel zone is a sea of chain restaurants. We had hoped to go to Bonefish, but the place was packed to the gills with a 45-min wait. Just about every other place had tourists lining up outside on a recent Saturday night. We crossed the street and went to Sonny's where there... More
