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.

This Sonny's is easily accessed from I-75. We had the salad bar which includes a choice of 1 Southern style BBQ. The server said his favorite was the smoked turkey and pulled pork. So that's what we ordered. The meat is brought to your table on a plate without a bun, which was good for us because we are avoiding carbohydrates. The salad bar was very good, and the pulled pork and smoked turkey were excellent. Sonnys web site has a feature that you can enter your travel starting and ending locations and the web site will show the Sonnys reataurants along the way. We plan to use that feature in the future.

Great BBQ, service was a little off because we were sited at a table of someone that took a break so we waited a little more than normal

We were staying overnight across the street and knew that Sonny's was a chain but had not ever tried until now. It was amazing, portions were good, staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable. The pulled pork was VERY GOOD, even without the BBQ sauce. There is slim pickens at this exit and we do not eat fast food so luckily thi swas around and we were pleasantly surprised and will likely stop at another Sonny's next time we will be on the road.. the only downfall we had is that we were hoping to get a beer on a Friday night happy hour time but wonderful KY and their dry towns did not happen, even here at Sonny's.

Sonnys has terrific pulled pork and barbeque sauce. Since they added on, its much better. Went last week and had a good waitress, very friendly and they were very busy
