We eat here weekly. Friendly staff, quick service, and good food. Love the brisket (lean), cole slaw, green beans & garlic toast lunch. And the sweet BBQ sauce for sure. Oh yeah, they have the best brewed iced tea.

Ok, Sonny's isn't the best BBQ I've had. What Sonny's is consistent food and service. We asked about the dog friendly outdoor covered patio at this location.
