Typical BBQ, I had the burnt ends and they didn't disappoint. The beans were very tasty. I would go back if I was ever in this neck of the woods again.

Friendly staff and very consistent BBQ. If you are in a hurry Sunday afternoon this is not the place to go for lunch. They are very busy and get everything out as fast as possible.

This Sonny's was the best I have eaten at in a long time. We had baby back ribs, baked beans, potato salad, baked sweet potatoes, cole slaw and all was excellent.
