Stopped in fro a bite on our way to Charlotte, NC from Atlanta area. Initial service was fast and waitress was attentive. After the drinks were delivered the pace slowed to what seemed like a crawl. Food wasn't horrible but lacking some smoke on the BBQ and sides are mediocre. Sauces were pretty good and prices were average for the... More

Stopped here in the way back from a weekend out of town trip. We usually stop here on the way back from up north and go through the drive thru but this time we went inside. The food was really good as it always is. BBQ pork is cooked very well, has lots of flavor and has very little grizzle... More

We tried the new barbeque sandwich that was advertised. It was just too expensive. It tasted ok- just cost too much we thought. We don't visit there too much. Just hit a drive thru if we wanted a hamburger steak plate. I've eaten some of their catered food on occasion. It was ok but it was on someone else's dime.... More

I ordered the all you can eat ribs, and I was not disappointed. They tasted awesome and there was always another plate of ribs waiting for me before I was done.

We enjoyed the special with the pulled pork on the garlic bread. My friend chose the fries and I had the baked beans. Huge portions. Great pricing for this Value Deal and they kept the drinks coming which was great on this sultry hot day of travel. What a good place to take a break on a working trip. Staff... More

Sonny's is not bad BBQ for a chain BBQ restaurant. The meat is always fresh and tender. Not too smokey. Sides are fair. Staff is friendly.
