We visited with other family for lunch. The food came out hot,the portions were large and the wait staff was awesome. Sill one of my favorite places to eat after many years. Very fast service. This one was a little better than most of the other ones we have been too.

We had the ribs. We have had them before, and they are cooked to perfection, with sufficient smoky taste and mild sauce (more sauces available on the table). The tea is great, and the staff most helpful. Right on the road to the Lowe's Speedway, and across from a Bass Pro Shop.

Ive been going to Sonny's for almost all of my life. This restaurant is my blood. I've stopped at any Sonny's I could along the routes I take when traveling. This stop was especially important as I was meeting my sister and her two sons, as well as my dad. We had a family death and to make a long... More

I grew up on Sonny's BBQ, but moved away 20 years ago. Whenever I get a chance, I stop to eat my favorite BBQ in the world. This time was lunch with my boys as we were driving to Atlanta. Savory Pork sliced thin. BBQ Baked Beans. Cole Slaw. It simply doesn't get any better.

I really like this restaurant. The food isn't going to win any awards, but it's good. The value, especially when you get an all you can eat meal, is wonderful - not only do you get all you can eat meat (of your choice), you get all you can eat sides as well. The salad bar is good, well maintained,... More

Food was average; not great but not bad. The staff made up for it, super friendly people. The order arrived quickly. I would select Sonny's over all chain restaurants.

Five of us ate here, a rainy Saturday night near Concord Mall. Locals can appreciate the crowds this entails so we decided to give Sonny's a try. It's on the other side of I-85 from the Mall and all the tourists won't travel the extra 2 minutes, leaving us a half empty restaurant at 7pm. Quick & friendly service, OK... More

I am a BBQ fan, and was disappointed with my stop at this Sonny's. Service was ok, salad bar was a bit needy. Do not like trying to fight with the cover over the salad items, and trying to reach to the back, really no need to have this set up non-user friendly. Some of the items, was a bit... More
