Classic BBQ Place

They have all different kinds of meats that are barbequed along with the typical and non-typical sides. Very informal place to eat.

I was feeling a little down because I have to work Thanksgiving night, but my mom called and ordered a full buffet meal to pick up on my way to work. She said that the man who helped her on the phone was stellar! When I went to go pick up the food, the man (same one) knew exactly who... More

The seating is not the best, but the food is good. I like the barbecue sandwich with cole slaw on it. It would be nicer if it wasn't set up cafeteria style, but had food servers instead.

Went here for lunch on the recommendations of local residents. This was great barbecue. Excellent choice of sides. I had the pork and brisket. Very good flavor. Employees were very friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

Driving north from St. George and stopped in Cedar City to eat dinner. Checked out restaurants on Trip Advisor. Someone said that Sonny Boy's was an "undiscovered gem!" We took a chance and were not disappointed! We ordered the sampler for two. Fall apart pulled pork and brisket. Chicken very tender and pulled apart as well. The ribs were a... More

We got the first cut off a freshly finished brisket. It was so tender and tasty. The sides of baked beans coleslaw were excellent, cornbread was dry but soaked up the juices from the beans real well. The prices were reasonable for BBQ and the employees were friendly and pleasant.

Really yummy bbq! I have tried the pulled pork, and the chicken nachos and they are both excellent. You even get a free ice cream cone after your meal.

You're always hoping to find that little restaurant that will serve up a helping of heaven. Sonny's fit the bill. The Texas style dry rubbed ribs absolutely melted in my mouth. The corn bread was a little dry but those ribs were awesome at a great price, served with a smile. I'll definitely hit her on another through trip.

Casual, college town atmosphere. Smoker out front (mmmmm). Order at the counter. We shared a sampler of brisket, chicken, pulled pork and ribs, included corn bread. 2 sides. The meat was flavorful, but over cooked/smoked, and somewhat dry. The sauce was good. Slightly sweet and not too vinegar-y. I would definitely go back Lots of beers to choose from
