My favorite dinner is beef brisket, fries and beans with a HUGE soda. The garlic bread is the best anywhere as is the food. I'm never disappointed. Love the baby backs as well as the onion ring appetizer and the okra and Brunswick stew. I like everything there. The Titusville location is always clean, great staff, great food.

This was the first time I visited since my last review, I figured one last chance since I had always liked it so much before. The service was great and friendly and the food was almost what I used to expect from this Sonny's. It all tasted great and was fresh, although the meat was a bit on the cool... More

If you like chain food then go. It is not real BBQ in my opinion. Overpriced not worth the money. They are not real mom and pop food so much better. I will never eat at another Sonny's again they are all the same. People are not friendly they act like it's a bother to come to their establishment.

We arrived at 9:30pm and didn't have high expectations, but the food and service were very good. Food came quickly, and was tasty. Waitress Ashley was very helpful and friendly.

My wife and I went here for dinner on Tuesday evening and I had Sonny's Sampler. It was a great dinner, service was prompt and there was more than enough food. I had to get a "Doggy Bag".

Tried this place on our way from Cocoa Beach to Orlando. It was after the lunch rush and the service was subpar. An employee stood and watched us make our plates at the salad bar and was super awkward. The macaroni and cheese was disgusting and looked and tasted as it had been sitting for hours. The sandwiches were OK... More

Find another place. The chicken was dry, and flavor was oddly smoked we tried the 1/2 chicken. Sweet Potato and broccoli were decent. Hot tea flavorless.

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.
