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.

I love this place. I am a BBQ nut, and Sonny's always pleases. Great Service, and the best smoked chicken and ribs around.

The BBQ was about average, but if you are hungry this is the place to eat as much as you want. Staff is great and everything looked clean. I go back for the ribs. This is NOT a must try place on a vacation.

Good barbeque, inexpensive and lots of sauce options. Server was very attentive. The sweet tea is great!

We were staying in the area and stopped by on a Friday evening. We were seated quickly and our server was quick and friendly. My friend said they had the best beans he has had in awhile. I had a rib, brisket and pulled pork dinner The ribs were a little on the dry side, everything else was good. I would stop again next time I am in the area.

I love Sonny's Bar-B-Q! Absolutely delicious! I get the "ALL U CAN EAT" Ribs and they are so good! The ribs are amazing and the side dishes are as well! Whenever I have friends or family in town, we try to make it to Sonny's for lunch or dinner!
