You have to like smoked meats to fully appreciate Sonny's. Chicken, pork or beef are all smoked dishes. Lunch menu offers smaller portions for a lesser price and are a good bargain for a sit down meal. The staff is always friendly, the food consistently...More

Drove by and it looks closed for business. This one struggled for a long time. Just went through a remodel?? Not sure why they would do that and then close.

We were seated quickly and our waitress was friendly. The restaurant seemed dated and neglected, not dirt bag filthy, just not kept up on. The problems began when we tried to order drinks. They said the menus were new and they didn't carry Coors light...More

A nice family place to eat. A good variety of food, my favorite is the pulled pork sandwich. The baked beans are good also. The corn nuggets are good with the honey.

I have good memories of delicious ribs at this Sonny's location but it had been a few years since I had visited this particular one. Our waiter was friendly and quick to greet us but he may have been new as he didn't seem completely...More

If you enjoy the occasional unhealthy meal then you know that good ribs are worth risking your health. If prepared correctly they can be very tasty and delicious. I've been to many Sonny's in my travels but this one is very bad. The ribs looked...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.
