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.

The price is right and you get your food fast. Always hot and fresh. Very good selection. Salad bar is always well stocked!!

We always stop and have BBQ at Sonny's. Good food. Good salad bar and fast service. My husband likes tea; but is not to fond of their tea. We like to share our food because their is alot in a serving but Sonny's do not like to have "shared plates"

The best okra I've had in a long time. Also liked the salad bar and iced tea.
I will go back there again next time I'm in town

Stopped by last night for take out, my order was taken promptly (as soon as I could decide from all the mouthwatering choices!) And I wasn't sitting down for much more than five minutes before the friendly bartender-waitress handed me my bag of goodness over the counter. She even asked if I wanted extra BBQ sauce and explained the different kinds. So I was particularly surprised when I got back to my hotel room, sat down and spread everything out for my feast and realized :no utensils, no napkins, and no wet naps. Wet naps and BBQ are virtually synonymous! I shouldn't think one has to ask for these items to be included. Thank goodness, the woman at the front desk found some plastic cutlery from the hotel breakfast facility and I was set.
The food was outstanding however. Well worth the fuss. Yummy ribs. Baked beans, Mac n cheese, cornbread, and onion rings. A lot of food for the money too, I thought.

The salad bar was good, the corn nuggets were good and the service was good. The all you can eat St. Louis Ribs were tough and dry. I did not even bother to order any extra. There is much better BBQ in Palm Bay for the price.
