“BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Take out service was very quick as the restaurant was busy the afternoon of our visit given the many events in town. Sonny's BBQ wherever you are in Florida is consistent and reasonably priced...Sliced Pork Dinner was plenty of food and the Sweet Tea is to die for.....

“I miss my local Sonny's, great food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped in on our way South in Lake City to get my fix of Sonny's. There used to be one near my house but it gave way to yet another auto dealership. I would eat there a few times a month for years.

It was just as I remembered. Great, affordable BBQ that tastes great and good service. I had the ribs which were awesome. Wife and chicken and son had the Catfish. Everyone loved their meals and I recommend Sonny's.
