Wanted to try some BBQ while on an overnight stop in the area and we were not disappointed here. Our server was excellent - friendly and efficient and even sent us on our way with to-go cups of sweet tea!!! Our party had a mixture of menu items from a burger to BBQ ribs - all were perfectly cooked and... More

If you enjoy bar-be-que this is the place for you! Their baked sweet potato is also delicious. Wonderful food and huge portions, but is a little bit on the pricey side.

Just a half mile from I95 in Brunswick,Georgia is the best menu for the hungry traveler. Choices include ribs, pulled pork, burgers, chicken, topped off with the happiest, friendliest, fastest survace ever. The best part is that you don't have to open your wallet too wide! Make it a "pit" stop!

I have been going to Sonny's for years. It was my introduction to BBQ. While some have surpassed it, it is still delicious and always has a good amount of customers. Good food, great sides.

Friends and family who know me, know that I am a big fan of Sonny's Bar-B-Q. Some would even say I am obsessed about BBQ..and well I guess I may be. We live in Myrtle Beach SC and do not have a Sonny's anywhere around so when we have a chance to travel to any place that has a Sonny's... More

Very attentive and courteous service. Orders taken and food delivered to the table very quickly. We ordered the Sweet Carolina sandwich and the Smokin'Gun sandwich. Yummy!! Will return next time we're in the area.

I'm a huge fan of BBQ of all varieties and I kept seeing signs for Sonny's when we'd drive up and down 95. This trip we had time to stop on the way up and went in to eat here. They are very popular with the locals and there was a bit of a line as we hit the after... More

As my husband and I love just about any kind of BBQ, this restaurant was a let down. The BBQ ribs with sauce were bland. To me the salad bar choices were too dessert-y or sodium/fat laden. Service was okay, but we wouldn't ever go back.

Very casual, down home place with a crowd that enjoys bar -b -q and beer. It was great bbq, even more so when you consider this is part of a chain. I had a sampler plate which gave me a bit of everything, along with a baked sweet potato with cinnamon butter - who knows how many calories but solo... More

We had a taste for some GOOD barbeque after a few hours of smelling other peoples' grill outs at the beach! Sonny's is close to the hotel where we stayed, so we selected it for dinner. The aroma of grilled or smoked meat filled the air in the parking lot, the menu looked promising and the salad bar looked fresh.... More
