“Southern Barbecue”
Review of Sonny’s BBQ

Sonny’s BBQ
Ranked #175 of 804 Restaurants in Tallahassee
Price range: $10 - $20
Cuisines: American, Barbecue
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.

“Southern Barbecue”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Big Deal Combo provides a sandwich, side and drink for a very reasonable price. Fried okra is some of the very best around.

This is one of the better Sonys I have been to. The food is good, the service is great and fast. I have frequented it on numerous occasions.
