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.

Service was good. Food was good, but I had better at this location. Could have been a little tider, but I arrived just after the peak of the church rush on a Sunday afternoon.

I love the Sonny's Big Deal ! I get the pulled pork on garlic bread. I from the part of the county where you put coleslaw on your BBQ, so I order a side of slaw and get the fantastic baked beans. The soda is so big you can't drink it all, but that's o.k. because they will put it in a go cup for you.

Once again a gerat meal was served up at Sonny's. I love this place because you always know what you will get. Good food and fast service. I always stop at Sonny's when I am on the road, because you do not have to wait a long time for your meal, and the food is good.
