I love their pulled pork on a bun and a baked sweet potato with cinnomen butter. Their salad bar is okay depending on which location you go to. Out of state guests always seem to love it.

The day we ate here was the 50th Anniversary of Sonny, so the place was a bit crowded but we were seated right away and the food was excellent.

Sonny's and great ribs go hand in hand. Sonny's of Spring Hill has the best tasting smoked ribs I've had in a long time. They are tender, juicy, and have great a great Bar-B-Q flavor. But Sonny's doesn't stop there. Their sides, especially the Bar-B-Q beans and cole slaw complete the meal.Speaking of the cole slaw - the slaw is... More

This place is grungy to say the least, water dripped on the heat of the diner opp me from a leaking duct, the waitress handed me a hot plate across another diner, too lazy to come over to my side. Food is pre made and tasteless mostly. Not going there again - McDonalds has better fries and burgers - and... More

We went here one evening while visiting family. The staff was nice and courteous even though we came right as they were preparing to close. The food was great and very decent prices. My Husband and I ate for $37.00 including tip and adding in the salad bar. Definitely recommended

I had to take a bottle of their Smokin Sauce home with me. It's hot and smokey and sooo delicious on the pork that is smoked with oak . My lunch also had a really fine baked whole sweet potato and cole slaw. Finish it off with a Yuenling Beer on tap and thats good eats.
