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.

I've been to sonnys all over the state but this one is the best one I've been to. It's unique on the inside but yet still has the classic sonnys feel and taste!

“Always good Bar B Q”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

This Sonny's look most has good slow cooked BBQ, nice portions, and the service is usually pretty good. The dinner portions are good, but the lunch BBQ sandwich is a little thin for my tastes. Sonny's corporate standards are high and this restaurant is one of the good ones.

Best food i've ever had. I ate the chicken and pork combo. The chicken was moist and the pork was juicy. Will return

“Fresh bbq”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

When I was a teenager I worked at a sonnys. How things have changed. Definitely could tell the proteins were freshly smoked. Nice servers, clean restaurant. Had some bbq from another place in town and here you get much better bbq at a better price!! Enough said!!!
