The chef here is an award winning chef , known for his Bar B Que and it was very good, wish we had eaten there more.

We love Sonny's as they are usually fairly consistent from location to location. We frequently get to go orders from this location and the food is always great and hot but the orders are often not quite right. It's a little difficult to go through...More

Good prices for quick BBQ. Nothing too special but tastes good. Portions look small but it's plenty once you start eating.

We had the pork which was pretty good but the salad bar and corn muffin were both disappointing. The lettuce on the salad bar looks like cheap bagged lettuce and it wasn't very fresh.

Always a fan of their ribs and their chicken. Salad bar at this one was very good as well. Love their baked beans and potato salad.

Yes - but not contiguous seating. They'll seat you in an area which will have several large tables. It'll actually work out better for you and the servers overall to be in one area. Ii's best to call head and arrange... More

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.
