... and I've eaten a great many around the world.
I used to think the best were the jumbo ribs I ate in Santon, Jo'burg, ZA, but Sonny's beat them hands down. SWMBO's Chicken Caeser Salad was one of the best too.
We'd driven from Naples to see the Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest - don't bother, BTW, and then on to see Lake Okaloacoochee - you can't, unless you drive a great many more miles.
Sonny's looked the most inviting of Clewiston's limited restaurant offerings, and by golly, the trucks parked outside were driven by people with a taste for great ribs.
The sampler looked the best bet for a newbie, and it was. The meat fell off the bones. It had great flavour and a melt-in-the-mouth texture.
The place is a tad 'spit-and-sawdust', but you won't be going there for the ambiance ... just the food.
Clewiston's brands itself the "Sweetest town in the USA". Well, Sonny's ribs were the sweetest I've eaten in memory.
