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.

Lunch portion adequate. Sometimes lax on quality. Ok for just Bbq but other places are better. Service is better than most places. Especially if you are a regular. The sweet tea is great and served in a 32 oz container.

Typical smoked BBQ foods if you like that flavor. Prices are good and the restaurant is clean.

Always good. Try the ribs. We like the kansas City ribs but the baby backs are great also.

Just bad. So many better places to choose from. Find something local, not a chain. Try Johnnies if you are in Gainesville.
