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.

Saturday night and it was slow. Salad bar had a few not so fresh looking items. Smoked turkey was dry and brisket waa also dry and not a good serving size for the money veggie sides were all cold and bland no butter served with corn bread or veggies got fake butter off bar wings were good but not hot and no blue cheese as ordered slow service. Would not return to this location again

I have dined at this location many times and the food and service have gone down hill. Our last server was hopeless with no idea of what she was doing. The service was so bad by the time we received our food we could not enjoy it, although it was not up to par either. If you are in the area drive a few more exits until you find the next restaurant. This is not one of Sonny's best locations and it is obvious by the complaints we heard from other tables. Perhaps after comping enough meals they will fix it.

The servings were more than my friends and I could eat, so it made two meals for me. Plus the restaurant was right next door to our motel, and we could walk over.

The pulled pork sandwich is good. Needs a small amount of a seasoning. The chicken wings are not for myself. The giant iced teas are a good value. Salad bar is bland. I don't like the food coming out in no time flat. Unless you only have 45 minutes for lunch.

Sonny's has the best BBQ pork that has passed these lips. Service isn't always speedy, but the tastiness more than makes up for the wait.
