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.

“Excellent dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012 via mobile

I received a perfectly cooked steak and baked potato. Finger-licking good. I also received excellent customer service from the wait staff, and the manager named John made a personalized visit which was very comforting. I was impressed and will definitely be returning to try some more of their menu. It's a must visit if you are craving some delicious bbq.

“Very Good, Especially For A Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

This place use to be hit or miss, but the last few times it has been very enjoyable. The foos is great, salad bar is very good, great portions, & the service is excellent. This is a chain of course but you couldn't tell it from the experience. Very very good.

“Nothing special but OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Sonny's was OK but not great. The ribs were not real tender. The pulled pork was OK. The beans were good though. The service was fairly good until we got our food and then they seemed to forget about us. I always like their toast.
