We have eaten lunch and dinner and purchased pulled pork by the pound. It has always been delicious. The pulled chicken is also good and love the cole slaw.

as the title reads, these eggrolls are life and you won't have the faintest idea of what your life once was before you ate them.

I live Sonny's sliced pork. Always moist and flavorful. Add Texas toast, slaw, fries, and some sweet smokin sauce and you've got a fantastic meal. I love the smell of smoking meat. It's a chain restaurant but always has the feel of a mom and pop place. The ribs and chicken are always moist as well. Great prices and easy... More

We love this place but it's a hit or miss kind of place. Week nights are better than Friday or Saturdays. Big lunch crowds too.

We have never been disappointed with the food at Sonny's. We eat there at least 6 times a year. The seats are not comfortable but the food is delicious.
