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.

Have eaten here many times for a quick lunch but this is my Go To Place when we need to feed family or friends. Their sliced beef brisket by the pound is great to make sandwiches or serve with baked potatoes. They have drive thru.

The food is always good. Our favorite is the BBQ pork, with coleslaw on the sandwich. The ribs and chicken are also good. For a change we like the hamburger.

I've been there more than once. I go for the ribs, which are meager, dry, tough. I have friends who like the chicken and pulled pork. It all seems over priced for what you get. The salad bar seems good. Service is good.
