Great service, fairly good food. Lunch special for $5 (plus a drink). Modest portions. Simple. I would return. Local firemen were eating here, too.

I had sliced BBQ on garlic bread with BBQ beans and fries to eat. The service was fast, the BBQ had a good flavor, sliced thin, large sides and drink for the price of... More

The food itself is very good. My wife and I both had the pork BBQ sandwiches with fries and sweet tea. Our total bill... More

Service was horrible and took forever to get our food. When we did the ribs were so tough they almost pulled my teeth trying to eat them. Sliced beef was cold and bland. The baked sweet potato tasted odd...can't explain it any further than that. Never refilled our glasses. I suppose it was a manager at the register with the... More

The food options, quality and decor has slipped mightly since this establishment decided to abandon the Sonny's franchise. The food does not have the same consistency but the staff is still good.
