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.

Great Barbeque. Great Service. At the right price.

Sonny's has been serving great BBQ since 1969. You can smell the cooking from a block away. I've been there twice for lunch. Had the pulled pork dinner which was more than I could eat! So I had the one quarter chicken the second time. This came with baked beans, corn on the cob and delicious corn... read more

Sonny's is the only place to go for baby back ribs! Try them; you can't go wrong! Second, try the Big Deal - excellent value - and always service with a smile.

Very busy place but well worth the wait for seating. A wonderful scent of smoking food welcomes you. Service is quick and the menu great. We enjoyed barbecue sandwiches and our friend had the chicken. Nicely plated with slaw it was great. Good place to eat with friends and family on their large wooden tables.

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.
