This restaurant could be so much better if they would pay more attention to detail. The food was good. The bathrooms appeared to have not been cleaned for 3-4 days. Trash was overflowing. Mirror and lav surfaces were all dirty. Floor had urine around the...More

Kind of an unloved Sonny’s. This place needs some sprucing up inside the restaurant and the restroom needs to be gutted. Food was normal Sonny’s. Service was good.More

Sonny's is your good old local restaurant that features many local foods. The staff is friendly and the menu is full of basic foods that are prepared well. Don't expect any fancy shmancy entrees! Prices are reasonable and servings are fair. Parking right outside the...More

Sonny's pulled pork is excellent, although I bought the "unlimited" meal I was not offered any more - but I did not need it. It was great flavor

We went here on our last night of vacation but both agreed we would have fined here more than once had we discovered it when we first started our vacation! Ribs are off the chart delish!

There are not many places to eat in this small town, but Sonny’s steps up to the plate to deliver good with decent prices. The Hillbilly Eggrolls are my favorite on the entire menu. Great place to eat

While the food was okay it was nothing special. Pricing was about average. Restaurant was under staffed. Had to wait about 10 minutes in the lobby for a table despite tables being ready and others needing cleaning. General appearance of restaurant is worn, tired and...More

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.
