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.

We ate at one Sonny's on I95 going down to Florida which was excellent so we decided to try this one in Clewiston one evening & we were not disappointed. We got a sampler with sliced BBQ, ribs & brisket and again the food was excellent. Sonny's will definitely be a place we will stop in the future on vacations or trips. Service was also good.

Food was dry. Staff seemed unconcerned about promptness. Been to a lot and just unimpressed by this one.

I know Sonny's is a chain, so I didn't have high expectations. But I was pleasantly surprise with the food and service. The rib sampler plate was great! And with a variety of sauces at the table to choose from, you can spice it up, or sweeten it, to your liking. (Loved The Smokin' Sauce) The baked sweet potato was amazing. Cole slaw and corn bread very good too. Waitress Corie was prompt and knowledgeable. Nothing fancy, but good food, and friendly, fast service at a fair price.

This is a franchise barbeque restaurant that produced a luncheon sandwich of generous portions of slightly dry pulled pork. Despite that,it had a nice taste. The facility was clean and the waitress prompt and pleasant. If you want barbeque, this is probably the place to go in Clewiston. Re

We picked this restaurant because it was right next door to our hotel. The service was very terrible and our waiter could care less how long we waited. The food was OK but surely not worth the wait. Forget asking for refills because they could care less.
