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.

Sonny's BBQ is real good Southern BBQ. They have everything from ribs to chicken, pulled pork and all the sides you can think of for a very authentic taste. If' you're looking for some great Southern cuisine with a heaping of Southern hospitality, look no further. Make sure you try the sweet tea, too!

Good food, good service, fair atmosphere but not set up to handle a family get together. There was only 14 of us, but I called a week ahead and was told they do not take reservations but the had plenty of room so there would not be any issues. Well, a large seating consisted of a booth with 2 tables put on the end. We did ok, but the configuration made us feel as though we were intruding on others. Our waitress was great and they did try their hardest. No more larger get togethers but for a party of up to 6, we will return. Good barbeque but better salad bar.

Their barbeque is always good and a good salad bar. I personally like the chicken best. Good cole slaw and fries. The price and service are great.

We, usually, do a pickup at Sonny's. Their barbeque is good, but not outstanding. You have several choices on plates...ribs, chicken, sliced beef or pork. The cole slaw is good, and they offer a baked Irish potato or baked sweet potato.
