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.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My family and I have eaten here a bunch of times and have never been dissapointed. I understand that some people just don't care for their barbecue and well that is their opinion. We have always been satisfied with their food and service. Every time we have gone there, they treat you like you're special.

“Not great tasting food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

drive a mile up Cherry Road for some real barbeque at Burkes. If you want a whole lot of cheap food, Sonnys is good. But if you want authentic barbeque, go to Burkes.
