This Sonny's is horrible!!! They should be ashamed of how they treat their drive thru customers. They give me some
crap...old, burnt, cold fries (half crinkle half shoe string), big black burnt spot on top of the bun, leftover pulled pork from someone else's plate!!! Please beware! At the least, check your food before leaving; if you just have to eat at this dump!!! I wish I could leave zero stars!!!

I called and it took a while for them to answer the phone but they were super pleasant. By the time I arrived, my food was ready and waiting for me, which was really nice. All the employees just seemed like good country people.
All of the food was great, except for the macaroni. It just didn't look appealing to me and it didn't taste that good but everything else was fine.
I would definitely go there for nice service from the staff.

I'm sorry I didn't take pictures of the other food but I was starving...

Our meal at Sonny's was delicious yesterday. I had flavorful, tender, sliced pork. The place is drab and tired. Gray is an "in" color but it no way goes with Sonny's decor of pine wood. Fluorescent white bulbs are in the old wooden hanging lights which doesn't help, pads on the benches are worn and torn, a good cleaning wouldn't hurt and the help needs some sprucing up. We choose this location rather than the one in Buford-for better food -but am rethinking the drive to this place.

Stopped in for an early dinner with family today for father's day, and after three attempts to get it right they still failed miserably with providing a hot succulent meal. Pulled pork and sliced pork were room temperature. Ribs were tough ands same complaints from 4 near by tables. Save your $$$. All of this was while expressing concerns to manager. I need
