This Sonny's is horrible!!! They should be ashamed of how they treat their drive thru customers. They give me some crap...old, burnt, cold fries (half crinkle half shoe string), big black burnt spot on top of the bun, leftover pulled pork from someone else's plate!!!...More

Our meal at Sonny's was delicious yesterday. I had flavorful, tender, sliced pork. The place is drab and tired. Gray is an "in" color but it no way goes with Sonny's decor of pine wood. Fluorescent white bulbs are in the old wooden hanging lights...More

I have eaten at several Sonnys, but would consider this one has lower quality food. Had a pulled pork sandwich and slaw. The slaw was great if you like vinegar based. No mayo!! The pulled pork was average. If you want a drink, don't forget...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.
