I do order out often from Sonny's. When company from out of town comes to visit we eat sandwiches and ribs are great.

If you're in a Sonny's coverage area, you pretty much know what you're going to get. It's not amazing BBQ, but it's always pretty good and it's darn cheap. We get a lot of Sonny's catered at work and it's usually pretty decent. You get...More

Smoked meat lover's dream. Nothing special about the salad bar. Service was OK. Not pricey. Family friendly, casual atmosphere.

When we got there, they just ran out of St, Louis ribs, but they substituted it with baby ribs for yes, which were even better. It was quiet with no music played, so was just for us, two over fifty-year-old people.

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.
