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 Restaurant needs HELP.
You Do Not slice Brisket In advance to Dry Out. Cut it Fresh, It's not that much trouble.
GO BACK TO BASICS.

the ribs were very good. the decor is from the late seventies. and the servers and nice but not too enthusiastic. No wait time. and several sauce choices. we tried the pulled pork, sliced pork, and ribs. all were good, but the ribs were about perfect. the corn bread was excellent too. not too expenisive either

We were looking for something to eat after a long day in town. This was located very conveniently located near our hotel. From the get go the staff was amazingly friendly and saw to our needs. I was astounded at the price of the all you can eat ribs which truly is all you can eat. Although they had a large number of customers the food was quickly brought to our table and the all you can eat ribs were replenished promptly. Even the manager came by to ensure everything was up to our expectations. it was an excellent dinning experience.

Decided to dine out after church. Chose Sonny's on US 1. Plenty of parking. The waitress was attentive & helpful.. My grandson enjoyed the fries and ketchup. The food was well prepared and served while still hot. Overall, a great family time.

This place was recommend to us from the Hotel we stayed at. It was very nice place to eat. It has a salad bar. And can get a side of Ribs if you would like. That is nice if you are a diet and still want some Ribs. We don't have these place in MN. So it was good to get good BBQ ribs on vacation
