This is the absolute worst dining experience a person can have. If this is your idea of bar-b-q, time to wake up. Ribs were dried out and small, pulled pork was fatty, and the brisket not lean at all....and top that off with 30 minutes...More

Being from the northeast, admittedly my experience with real BBQ is very limited. That said, however, I have had the opportunity of late to gorge myself with everything from pulled pork nachos to smoked brisket and everything in between. Went to Sonny's with four others...More

Had the sampler plate. Value is supper for the price. Had to take home left overs, and had them the next day for lunch. Food is very good.

Sonny's is good BBQ. It's not "great", certainly not "average"; but not the BBQ like you get in the small town no-name diners on back roads! You know you can go to Sonny's and always get a good BBQ sandwich on really good garlic toast....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.
