We stopped for dinner and it was very good. Our waitress apologized profusely that the management declined to allow access to either of the 2 WIFI routers that are on-site. The excuse offered was families should talk during dinner, interesting since the overly loud country...More

Sonny's has reliably good BBQ. The portions are fair and they still have crinkle cut fries. The sweet tea is great. Generally the service is good. My only complaint is how expensive Sonny's is now. The last couple years, the prices have really gone up...More

The 'all you can eat' dinners are aptly named. Lots of meat. Lots of sides and plenty of drink. Bring your appetite. Servers are friendly and on the spot with refills of drink and food. This is a great place if you are very hungry...More

We have been visiting my family in Largo for 10+ years and thought it was a fast food restaurant so anytime my husband requested to try it, I said no. He got my Dad to agree to go for dinner. We had a wonderful meal....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.
