Great food, good service, friendly atmosphere. New waiter, a little off his game but good. Food is consistently yummy. Salad bar always needs service, it's usually a mess and unappealing. Reasonably priced and good portions.

We ate there during the hurricane Matthew evacuations. Even though they did not have a full menu because of delivery problems they did offer a few items. We ordered brisket which generally is good. The food we were served had so much fat and was...More

Good BBQ at good prices. The ribs, hamburgers, and pulled pork sandwiches are good. I love the corn nuggets!

As part of business, we dined at Sonny's in Clewiston. The food was really good. The drawback was the server. He was slow and didn't offer to fill our drinks. He also didn't come back to check on us. Would've been a five otherwise.

The food is ok very unpredictable? CLewiston doesn't offer much as far as restaurants so this would be a option you may consider?

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.
