“Sonnys BBQ in Deland”
Review of Sonny's BBQ

Sonny's BBQ
Ranked #6 of 182 Restaurants in DeLand
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $10 - $20
Cuisines: Barbecue
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.

Reviewed January 29, 2014

I chose to Eat at Sonny's about 3 to 4 times a week, Service is excellent, I always ask for Andrea because she has gotten to know what i get for lunch and is a fast and friendly server. All of the staff are pleasant and contribute to a open and welcome atmosphere, it can get crowded and busy at lunch time but they do a great job and always seem to be well staffed
