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.

All you can eat chicken.
The service was great, the dinner was super. I was greeted warmly , seated promptly, and had a great meal. Sonny's has a great salad bar with just about everything, including smoked chicken salad (very good). The chicken dinner was great, moist with that good hardwood smoke flavor. The sides, especially the coleslaw, out of sight, and of course the ice tea, wow. The service was great, the manager checked with a us and asked us if everything is good. Our server was super good. The facilities, and resturant are very clean. We had a good dining experience, and will be back as a regular.

Driving up 95 in heavy rain decided to pull off the road for a bite to eat, and rather than stop at the traditional drive thru's we saw a drive in sign for Barbrque @ Somny's. Actually it became a full meal-sweet potatoe, corn on the Cobb, garlic bread & barbeque. BBQ was only ok & left a lot to be desired in terms of flavor. Window girl was very pleasant and outgoing .

I went to Sonny's for the all you can eat ribs. I had the sweet sauce which is relatively decent. However, the spare ribs seemed old and dry so I had to add more than the typical amount of sauce to make the ribs palatable. I probably should have complained to the waitress but the sauce brought some life back into the ribs so I decided not to. The service was slow and I had to keep asking for double orders of ribs because after the first batch the waitress would only bring two ribs at a time. This annoyed me but she explained it was the company policy. If they are going to be stingy with the ribs maybe they shouldnt have the all you can eat ribs on the menu or simply raise the price. Just a thought. I had the baked beans as a side which were good. I think i'll return and give Sonny's another shot.

The wife and I has a good experience at sonny's in stuart fl , so decided to try port orange location. My pulled pork sandwich had hard chunks of pork ends and pieces of bone in it. I told the waitress and she called over the manager, who said she would "take care of it". Paid my check to the waitress @ the register as the manager watched & nothing was "taken care of". This will be my last visit to sonny's port orange.
