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.

If your looking for a bar-b-q place to eat where everyone can find something delicious, even if they don't like bar-b-q, look no more. Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q on Atlanta Highway has a wide range of pork and chicken items on the menu, as well as a great salad bar and two types of hot soup. The warm atmosphere and friendly service is just perfect as the temperatures drop outside and you look for warm comfort food. Save room for dessert. I was skeptical of the banana pudding since I make it from scratch, but I was pleasantly surprised with a delicious individual serving of homemade banana pudding! Enjoy the brisket, the ribs, the chicken, the pork, or any other item on the menu and walk away full and comforted!
