“Poor Service Combined with Long Wait and Wrong Order”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Christina took our order but NEVER returned to see if our order was correct (which it wasn't) or to tell us why our order took incredibly long to receive or to offer any refills on drinks or to see if we needed anything else at all. We even flagged down a manager TWICE and only then did she come back with the check. That was the first time she'd stopped by our table since taking our order. Another woman literally plopped the food on the table and immediately left w/o asking us if everything was okay or if we needed anything. Christina passed by our table numerous times but purposely looked away from us and did not stop. She never came to the table after we got our food. She and another server spent enormous amounts of time at a nearby table with other guests (man, woman and two children) while ignoring the rest of us. Our bill was not correct but we didn't correct her b/c it would've taken to long to get her back to our table. Even when we told the manager about her poor service, he didn't ask us what else we needed!!

“BBQ Goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2009

If you have never been to the South to enjoy some great BBQ, then when you come visit, make sure you add this to your lunch or dinner plans. Sonny's has been around for many years and thier food is great tasting. I have compared this place to other BBQ's but none can come close to the food tasdte here. Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but overall, this is the place to take the family. they offer a lunch special that includes drink for about 7-8 bucks.
