The mac'n'cheese was great and I ate it like a little piggie. LOL. Their cornbread is yummy. I strongly suggest avoiding the Brunswick Stew. Not your typical juicy, delectable brothy delight. It was... More

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...
