Rhonda is the best ever employee and the management team is always out speaking with customers to ensure all is good. You could not ask for a better place to eat at..The baby back ribs are outstanding along with the 🌽 corn-the-cob and green beans

Good BBQ. Their prices for the lunch specials are very reasonable. Today I had the 1/4 chicken and two sides. The chicken was very good. Normally, I love their fries but today they were not cooked through. Normally great service but our waiter was slow...More

Had a desire for some barbecue and went to Sonny's after not having visited in quite a while. Pricing keeps inching up and up, so I wouldn't make it part of a regular luncheon "place." As has always been the case, the food was excellent...More

Brisket I ordered was reddish and looked like beef but it was mushy and didn't taste like freshly roasted beef. Tasted more like something you would get frozen at Costco and then re-heat it.

The price of the food was high. My brisket meal was about $15, and consisted of a few pieces of meat and the rest looked like scrap meat. Not what I expected. I did like the "red-neck egg rolls." Did not like the fried apples,...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.
