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.

“Good food and cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My fiancee and I went here when we stayed at the Wyndham hotel Use your key card to get 10 percent off. Two full meals was under 20 bucks. I highly recommend.

“Ribs Reign”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Very good food and service. the portions were large and the desserts called for a carry out. There were a lot of items on the menu so anyone could find something for their taste buds.

“absolutely no frills, but the food is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

This is probably the equivilent of your hometown dive that has great food and little atmosphere. if so, you have found home away from home. don't expect fine china, but just the essentials to eat a picnic dinner. oh yeah, plenty of napkins. food is excellent, waite staff is great, and the price is right. it is great for families on a limited budget. enjoy!

“Not here if you are in a hurry!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Eaten at Sonny's BBQ many times and most of the time the food is rather good. However at this location the service was slower than a snail could crawl and by the time the food was brought to us it was not even warm. Also, the place was not that crowded either. The only way I will ever eat here again is if and when I have nothing else to do!
