In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

Basic is not bad mind you. Sonny's is good basic BBQ. Nothing exciting about it. The sides are OK too. I always miss green and real vegetables at most BBQ places. This is no exception. All of the sides are just food, not awful but not outstanding wither. I usually get something to go so have not been in to... More

We hit Sonny's twice on this trip. The food is so fresh and good. And the prices are so low, it shocks my really. We get hammered in Canada for a nice meal like this. A must visit! It's too bad this franchise is only in the south!

My parents are regulars at this Sonny's, so they brought me and my brother and his friend to Sonny's for a lunch and family get together. The service was very good, the price was reasonable and the quality of food excellent. I'm from NC and BBQ is serious business and this BBQ was as good as any I've had in... More

Thanks Tripadvisor for this gem! We were heading back to our vacation villa in Davenport from Kennedy and fancied a homecooked BBQ meal en route. A quick look at the TA app brought us to this BBQ restaurant, full of local diners which is always a great sign! Fantastic prices, exellent food and a lively atmosphere. Highly recommend this place

We stopped at Sonny's to eat the night before our cruise departed from Port Canaveral. We had to wait for about 20 minutes to be seated (it was Friday night after all), but all the service staff were friendly and helpful. And, the barbecue was delicious! It's a very casual place to eat and good for families. There is a... More

Awesome barbecue, taste soo good. Price is affordable and I like the baby back ribs the most. The other kinds of ribs are also worth trying.

Definitely recommend this restaurant close to Orlando international Airport. We visited it 3april and had fantastic meal on an "all you can eat" basis. Food was delicious and plentiful no matter how often you requested top ups. Price was very reasonable for our family if three. If you get a chance give Sonny's a visit...! ;-))

Description

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
