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.

“Sonny's is our favorite bar-b-q chain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Always good. Try the ribs. We like the kansas City ribs but the baby backs are great also.

“You are in the South, find better BBQ.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Just bad. So many better places to choose from. Find something local, not a chain. Try Johnnies if you are in Gainesville.

“Bad service, poor BBQ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

The place was practically empty when we arrived. Even though we were about the only people in the restaurant, it took about 15 minutes for a server to wait our table. It took almost an hour for our food to arrive. I guess they had to kill the animals that they were serving. There are a lot better places to get pulled pork BBQ (for a southerner, that's redundant).
