Description: Sonny's BBQ offers a variety of barbeque meats, including St. Louis Cut Ribs and Sonny's Signature Baby Backs, Pulled Beef Brisket, Pulled and Sliced Pork, Sliced Turkey, and Chicken, all smoked slowly over a hardwood fire. Today, with 126 restaurants in nine southeastern states, Sonny's BBQ is one of the largest, most popular barbeque chains in the country. Our secret? We cook it up slow and serve it up fast and friendly.

I need their recipe. Way better than I've ever cooked! Service was great and the establishment was well kept.

“Outstanding, not your typical Sonnys”

“Great BBBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were so happy to find a Sonny's that was open. We live in Palm Beach county- the Sonnyi's in Royal Palm Beach closed a few years ago - we really
Miss it. The service and food at the Vero Beach restaurant was great.

“Good BBQ and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great food, great for families, and great service. Sure, it's a chain, but the pulled pork was wonderful. And, my picky eater could get a grilled cheese, making that dining experience that much easier.

“Great Value and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Our food was fantastic and a great value (especially for my husband who chose all-you-can-eat chicken). Service was okay, but a little slow and we had to endure a waitress at the tables next to us taking our her iphone and showing every guest her new nephew.

We would definitely return to this location of Sonny's. YUM
