Baked beans were barely warm. Fries likewise. Service was slow even though it was 11:30 a.m. and not crowded. Pulled pork was saving grace of meal.

If this were here in Jacksonville, FL, I would have rated it as poor. I go here on occasion with family in Tallahassee, and I am not impressed. The place is kinda dirty, the servers... More

Sonny's BBQ is overall delicious, can't beat the classic pulled pork sandwhich. I dont get to eat here very often but when I do, it's great.

The place was recommended by our front desk attendant. The outside looks very inviting I imagined a cozy Bbq place with country decor. No just a big no. The inside feels very detached from what they offer. My waiter was polite enough mom and I ordered the Baby Backs with baked potatoes (was turned down when asking for bacon and... More
