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.

We came as a family group of six, four adults and two children. The best part of the menu is an all-you-can-eat meal for a ridiculously low $17. At my weight, I do NOT need to be incentivized to over-eat, and I am competitive enough to want to make sure that the restaurant wouldn't make any money on me, so... More

Food tasted funny on 2 of our dinners. Told the waitress who told the manager who I guess told the busboy because it took over 30 minutes for the manager to come over and speak with us. Poor poor poor!

Good location, ample parking.

The family special is good in groups of 4 or 5 while the taste is nowhere! If you like ribs , the all you can eat is a good option. It's OK!

This is why I love living in a small town. Sonny's is always good for seeing a friend or two, always with great service, fast turn around time, and consistently wonderful food. They are also known for supporting a variety of local charitable causes.

This is a place to enjoy dining in or drive thru. We enjoy the drive thru, and taking the food back to our hotel. You will not find a better place for BBQ ribs, fries, or whatever you order. Enjoy!

At Hwy 50 and Interstate 95 there aren't a lot quality restaurant options. We chose Sonny's BBQ and we were really impressed with our experience there. Tabitha greeted us promptly and sat us and was back in less than a minute with cold sweet tea. We ordered corn fritters as an appetizer and a rack of ribs for lunch. We... More

We really enjoyed our meals at Sonny's. Nice selection, good prices. The mac and cheese was a winner with the kids (and the adults).
