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.

I ordered the salad bar w/a side of brisket..plenty to eat at the salad bar...,cukes,tomatoes,beets,brocolli salad...etc..plenty to choose from ...and you can go up as often as you want,The side of brisket was very tender and I chose the sweet bbq sauce to put on it,.DELISH! It also came with a very moist and yummy piece of cornbread.
My friend got the Super Combo..bbq beef chicken,pork and ribs..side of coleslaw..he said the pork was very moist but the others were a bit dry.All in all Sonny's is reasonably priced and you get plenty to eat.

We went here on Valentine's Day because every place seemed to have a long wait. After a drink at the bar, our table was ready. We shared the ribs special and some wings. We had good service although our server was not very cheery.

Wanted to like this place but it just didn't do it for us. Service was very slow, table was sticky and the food was so so. Have had much better ribs elsewhere. They appeared overwhelmed but it really didn't look that busy...don't know what the problem was. Maybe we hit a bad night.

I love Sony's ribs, but their pulled pork sandwhiches are also great. Their side dishes are also great. You won't go away hungry. Prices are reasonable.

The bar-b-que was good. We ate outside and it was a windy day, so probably not the best choice on our part. We have been to several Sonny's bar-b-ques and the food is consistently good. I like that you can get lunch servings at any time of day.
