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.

“Has certainly gone down hill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Food is still pretty good. Prices are too high for what it is. The service was strange. The floors need painted. They're going to need to step up their game to keep my attention.

“Just okay....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2009

This place is somewhat like Famous Dave's but not as good. Sonny's food is just okay--nothing special, but not bad either. They do have really reasonable prices though.
