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.

My cousin and I stopped in one night just to have a dinner together. First what we noticed was the waitress was really friendly and smiled, then she had our drink out to use in no time. We got our food and when it came out it we could already see that it was more than we could eat. I had ribs and pulled pork and she had steak and pulled pork. The barbecue sauces were wonderful and when we bit into the meat it was scrumptious. It is one of those meals that you are already full and cannot put the fork down.

This is not a 5 star BBQ restaurant but it's a really good place to get a variety of BBQ choices. Hope you're not trying to eat healthy....as the sides will pack on the pounds. Tastes good though.

There aren't very many places to get good barbecue in Richmond. Luckily, Sonny's does it right! It fills the niche for a much needed BBQ restaurant and also supplies excellent catering. If you're cravin BBQ and are in the Richmond, KY area, stop by Sonny's!

Such good BBQ! And a nice country atmosphere. They've recently remodeled and made the place even nicer. Their staff has always been friendly and happy to serve you. Always recommend Sonny's to friends in Richmond!
