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.

“Always great bar-b-q”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Have eaten at several Sonny's in Florida and they are consistently great. The brisket is tender and tasty, and the pulled pork is very well done. I will always recommend this restaurant.

“From the ashes...”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

A similar place burnt down before. This one is easy to find with plenty of parking space. Short waiting period on weekends. The food is good and plenty. The service is very good. Good variety of dishes. The pork sandwiches to kill for... very tasty.

Sonny's Bar-B-Q is a place you can always count on to deliver a good meal. Portions are big and the staff is friendly.
