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.

We always make it a tradition to stop here. My husband loves the endless chicken he can get. I got the pulled pork sandwich and it's always so good! See you next year!

When we visited last week, I ordered the Pork 3 ways. This plate had sliced pork, shredded and Ribs. Everything was absolutely wonderful, but I know next time that I'm getting just the Ribs. The coleslaw and sweet tea is awesome as well.. It's also very reasonably priced, my 2 kids and I ate for $26.

This was our second time to Sonny's in PCB. The food tastes good and the servings are big. We ordered the family meal for 4 and we could not finish it. Our server was excellent. I would recommend this place and we will be back.

Took the family in for BBQ while visiting Panama City Beach. Nice clean restaurant. Poor service. we saw the waitress 5 times. First when she came took our order, second when she brought our drinks third when she brought our food and fourth when she brought me a refill on my drink and fifth when she brought our bill. My wife and I all ordered the Sliced pork sandwich hers with fries mine with beans. I expected the sandwich to be pilled high like they do back home. Not the case. Had 3 slices of meat (thin slices) and that was it. Fries were of the frozen order and the beans barely eatable. My two daughters ordered chicken strips with mac and cheese from the children's menu. The only thing I tasted that was good was my daughters mac and cheese.
