Some out-of-towners wanted to go there and reluctantly I went along. My adult family members were also reluctant. It had been many years since I visited the local Sonny's. To my surprise, I was delighted. We went for dinner and there was a special that...More

I had a great wings and ribs combo, tasty and made to order. It may be a little slow for lunch if you are in a hurry but overall the service is good.

Nice place to have lunch/dinner and a drink after arriving at the Orlando airport. Very near the expressway so we could easily continue on to our final vacation destination after eating. Much better than fast food or stopping at an Oasis on the Florida Turnpike....More

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.
