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 was in town for a friends birthday dinner and we all decided to go here. It was absolutely horrible. The service was horrible as well. She never came back to check on us and had a nasty attitude. The food came out cold and there was a hair on my plate. I will never go back again!!!

Everytime I visit Sonny's, I ask to sit in Matt's section. He's a great server; very attentive, gets the order exactlyright and remembers what you like next time you come in. The food is terrific! Big portions, the sauce and meat flavors are just right! You wont leave hungry or disappointed.
Decent prices top off this place. Thanks to all of you!!!

My first experiences with Sonny's has not been so great, and it was quite a few years ago. At a friend's urging I went back, because it was one of her favorite places. Neither time, did I like the texture of the meat, and in both cases I ordered the combo with both the chicken and ribs. Both times I felt the meat could have been more tender. It actually amazes me that I do hear so many people saying that they love their bbq. I am assuming it is because they either like their sauce or they don't. I am afraid, I am one that does not. The sides are generally good, but are very much like fast food, which is ample if you are there to enjoy their bbq. I would suggest that you try them once to see if you like their sauce.

I went there with my son, it was a weekday around lunch time so it was busier than other times of the day i guess. We were seated promptly, but we didnt have a waitress/waiter come to atleast get our drink orders for 10-15 minutes. 3 other tables were seated after us. 1 gentleman from another table started to complain about the time it was taking. Me and my son got our drinks first, but the other table GOT THEIR FOOD FIRST. Atleast 10 minutes before I did. Their food must of been waiting for them back there because it was within 3-5 minutes they had food on their table! So i guess if you complain there, you get your food faster! regardless of who sits down first!
