“Good food for the money”
Review of Sonny's BBQ

Sonny's BBQ
Ranked #893 of 2,075 Restaurants in Jacksonville
Cuisines: American, Barbecue
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.

Found the food to have a great deal of smoke. Could not even taste the food.. Maybe just a bad night. Don't plan on returning anytime soon

Loved the pulled pork sandwiches and the cole slaw was great! The banana pudding was divine!!! Only set back, the prices are a little higher...but so worth it!

Great barbecued baby back ribs (the best!) and then our favorite, pulled chicken. All types of sauces are provided. Cole Slaw and Baked Beans are some of the best also.

Our meal was delicious, our server was great, Ashley is her name; like the other review below this one, our food was not piping hot, it felt more room temperature, but it was delicious anyway.
