I have stayed away from Sonny's for a long time because The meat was so dry. This time we ordered baby back ribs and they were delicious. Baked beans were great. They have won me back for their ribs.

I've often thought that the price of sandwiches at the Sonny's BBQ brand were over-priced. Come on -- nearly eight bucks for a pork sandwich! But, have to admit that the grilled garlic bread is delicious as the cover of a sandwich. The wait staff...More

I patronize many different Sonny's resturants throughout Florida but this particular location in Pinellas Park will never again get my business or my friends or family's either. For some odd reason the manager or franchise owner or both do not believe in providing large "To...More

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.
