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 have traveled this area a number of times and each time we make it a point to stop at Sonny's. The clerk at the hotel told us about Sonny's which was and outstanding suggestion. The BBQ is just wonderful and my husband enjoys the baby back ribs. Cold slaw, french fries and baked beans tasty and nice portions. We stopped on the way to Florida and then we went back to their drive through on our way back north for a BBQ sandwich and Cold Slaw. We will be back again.

Ribs were a bit overcooked. Waitress would not remove a dish. She thanked us for stacking the dishes but didn't take them. Room for improvement.

Stopped because of other reviews and were not disappointed. Between my wife and myself we had three types of ribs and the were all delicious. The baked beans were exceptional. The service was fast and courteous. Highly recommend this place.

I was there recently, the food is good, and everyone is nice and helpful
I like the sandwich with fries and drink included.

I`ve stopped in here a couple of times within the last month and you can get cheap gas on this stop.But this is a good Sonny`s with a bar, and all the usual, sliced and pulled pork, ribs and chicken, the service is very friendly and fast. The part that makes the biggest impression was the apple pie with ice cream. I don`t know if it`s catered or frozen or someone that works there is making them but it`s great. If you`ve ever had the one from Longhorns, I would compare the two but this one doesn`t come as a miniature pie, just a big piece.
