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.

The ribs were tender and falling off the bone! Will visit again.

The sauces are really good at Sonny's, but they are kind of like the Morrison's of BBQ joints. Some of the best BBQ places in the south don't have more than one or two locations...Sonny's has 126.

The staff here has always been very friendly and welcoming. Each visit they try to take care of me like a long time valued customer.

Sonny's is a chain, but this one does an above average job. I had the sliced pork sandwich twice. This was amazing the first time and very good the second. I have had the ribs many times. I prefer the center cut portions of the ribs and they have always been very good. I will eat them with or without the sauce (sweet and smoky).

There is another BBQ in town with great BBQ, but the service I get at this Sonny's makes my trips here worth it. They have good and relatively consistent BBQ and they are usually open when I get my craving or when I want to eat.

Thanks for a great experience Sonny's Albany.
