“Great value for the money”
Review of Sonny’s BBQ - CLOSED

Sonny’s BBQ
Price range: $10 - $20
Cuisines: American, 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.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Leesburg. Tyical of other Sonny's throughout the South. Good BBQ and the senior specialsl make it a great bargain. A senior can have a good meal there for about $7. Good service, attentive management and clean.

We did not have a GPS and smart phone ran out of battery, so this is the closest restaurant we could find. We saw a lot of cars in the parking lot, so we went in and tried their BBQ ribs and chicken, average, not tangy enough for my taste. Service was very good and the folks in there are mainly locals.

We live in town, and always stop in here for ribs! Good service, great ribs and a place close to home that feels like home, since we are here a lot:) never a bad dish, and if there was, they make it right!

When we came to Eustis Florida to check out the town Sonny's was one of the first restaurants that we ate at and we loved the sauce so much we wanted to purchase it for gifts. We wanted about 20 bottles. The waitress was so nice she told us that it is available at walmart for a lesser price. (which we did get) the ribs are so tender. They have a combo of 3 meats you must try. You will not leave hungry. Very good.
