Good for: Families with children
Dining options: Takeout
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.

“Close enough to be called BBQ but could be improved”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Sonny's is a chain BBQ restaurant. The food is okay but not the best bbq I have had. There is a method to eating at Sonny's (all locations are almost identical). Once you have the method down, going back is more enjoyable. There is always a salad bar with an extensive array of items. The people I have gone with each have their own favorite off the menu and typically stay with their favorite. I like the pork plate. More often than not, Sonny's has specials and you can almost always find coupons in the local newspapers.

“Terrible food'”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I'll never go back. The food was terrible. Now I take my business elsewhere when I want barbecue. In the Milton/Alpharetta area I would suggest "Cue".

“Food wasn't great”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I hadn't been in awhile and the food seemed to have gone down hill. The meat was very fatty and the service wasn't great either

“Good food at great prices”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Sonny's BBQ offers the standard fare with flare. They have different sauces to choose from so everyone in a group can find something they like. For the healthy-minded, there is a nice salad bar. I can never resist the onion rings...
