We lived in Miami FL and loved Sonny's and this Sonny's didn't disappoint. Brisket was very tasty, pulled pork was very good and the salad bar was great.

Sonny's in Zephyrhills is, hands-down, the best Sonny's around. Great servers, great atmosphere, great take-out experience, great food! When we are in the mood for barbeque, we go to Sonny's. Restaurant is wonderful, and the drive-thru is too!

Never had a bad experience here. Very friendly staff and consistent decent BBQ. I prefer a much bolder flavor profile then what Sonny's brings to the table. For Z-Hills this is the best BBQ spot...

The new building is much bigger, full bar and nicely laid out. Thoroughly enjoyed our Redneck Egg Rolls and Full Slab of baby back ribs. Great service as usual at most any Sonnys!

We stopped in at Sonny's for lunch Sunday after a long, hot day of riding. The server was quick with bringing out a much needed glass of sweet iced tea, Sonny's has the best tea! We had the BBQ chicken and turkey platter, it was good as usual. It took only 10 minutes after our order was placed for our... More

Very good food and service. Arrived later on in the evening half an hour before closing but weren't treated any differently or rushed.

Love the food... and the price. You can find some great smoked meals here. I also like the Salad Bar, Drink glasses are huge...no worry's on refills either.

As a former road warrior I can tell you that whenever possible I would eat at Sonny's in my travels as the food was always good with no exception. The Sonny's in Zephyrhills (my home town) is no exception. Good management.

My wife and I came here for lunch and had an excellent pulled pork and ribs. The sauces were amazing. The sweet/hot sauce was the best of the lot.
