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.

“Great BBBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were so happy to find a Sonny's that was open. We live in Palm Beach county- the Sonnyi's in Royal Palm Beach closed a few years ago - we really
Miss it. The service and food at the Vero Beach restaurant was great.

“Good BBQ and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great food, great for families, and great service. Sure, it's a chain, but the pulled pork was wonderful. And, my picky eater could get a grilled cheese, making that dining experience that much easier.

“Great Value and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Our food was fantastic and a great value (especially for my husband who chose all-you-can-eat chicken). Service was okay, but a little slow and we had to endure a waitress at the tables next to us taking our her iphone and showing every guest her new nephew.

We would definitely return to this location of Sonny's. YUM

“Soooo tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had there tonight and it was so delicious. The aroma hits you when you open the door, you just know it will be tasty. I had full rack baby back ribs and my husband had wings , both meals were flavourful and delicious that the meat was falling off the bone. The waitress, Brittany suggested we try the cornbread with cinnamon butter. OMG. It was heaven to the taste buds. Huge cola drinks that we could never finish even if we had hours too. Well priced meal was only $29.00 and a full belly. :)

“Consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

You always know what you are going to get here because nothing changes. Consistently average which I think is a good thing especially for the price.
