I've been a fairly regular customer at Sonny's ever since they built their first restaurant in DeLand (the one that had the roof ripped off by a tornado just days after they sold it). The new place is every bit as good as it ever was. If you're looking for someone in DeLand, Sonny's at lunch time is about as good a place as any to start looking. It's truly a local favorite.
The BBQ is always done right and it's never too spicy (I don't do hot spicy food!). Want more hot stuff? Add it yourself.
Service is always very friendly and efficient - never a problem that I've ever seen or heard of. If you like baked beans, you'll love Sonny's. Their beans can't be beat. I once went to a different BBQ place here in DeLand, and when I asked about the beans, the waitress admitted that they aren't as good as Sonny's (she used to work there).
The closest I could come to a negative is if you order an "all you can eat" special, don't be surprised if the seconds, thirds, etc., aren't as good as the first plate. Nothing unusual here though - every place does that. Just order a regular meal and skip the "all you can eat" - your waist line will thank you.
I had lunch with a friend from church this afternoon. Today's waitress was Shelby - excellent waitress!
