Showed up at 4 PM for an early dinner and hostess marked us off on some complex looking spreadsheet before leading us to our table. Waitresses buzzing all around and passing us seemingly avoiding eye contact while serving all other tables? We waited 25+ minutes...and NO ONE came to take our order so we talked to the hostess who seemed confused stating that she could have somebody take our order right away - yeah right after we complain they will take "good" care of us! And only 8 -9 tables had customers in varying stages of eating. We have been stopping at Sonny's for 45 years and have never been treated like this even though our visit was before the corona virus hit. WE won't be visiting this place again.More

Hi Jim. It doesn't sound like you were treated with the Southern hospitality we aim to serve our guests with, and that's not alright by us. As we share your comments with our team, we'd like the opportunity to connect with you further and make...More
This is what pit bbq is all about! The pit is where the cooking happens, that's where the PitMaster does the magic! We ordered the Pork 3 Ways, choice of sides -- get the garlic bread! and a pulled BBQ pork with sides -- get...the beans and slaw. $ choices of BBQ sauce on the table, I liked the Hot one best, but that's just me. The sweet tea is just right. A special shout out to Earl, he made our meal special with his suggestions.More
This was a busy place, and I arrived just before the rush. It was fun watching the staff - they were jumping and hustling - and my server was perfect. The salad bar was very good, but I came in to try the "Cuban" sandwich,...which turns out to be NOT AT ALL a "Cuban" (which was, in my opinion, false advertising). One of the staff members agreed, and suggested Larry's Subs. I've had theirs, and they are good, but you'll find that in another one of my reviews.More
Had dinner there for barbecue and enjoyed it much. Spouse had brisket and I had trio of brisket, smoked dry ribs, and pork. Plentiful,well prepared and good waitresses. They have a small by very adequate salad bar and the sides are large. We liked their...baked beans and potato salad. Meals are generally $10 or less unless you order a larger meal. Always well prepared barbecue.More
Stopped for lunch while traveling. Service was great!! Very friendly and efficient! Food was delicious! I had the sliced pork plate with bbq beans and fries, and garlic bread. Sooo good!!! Thanks for a great lunch!!
Always a good go to is the Sonny’s Sampler. Definitely enough for two people to share. 4 meats, two sides and if you let them know you’re sharing they will bring you two slices of garlic toast along with another plate. Sweet tea is always...made by a sweet southerner. 😉😜More
Table service was friendly and on point, restaurant was clean, food was served promptly and at the correct temps. Atmosphere was okay. Manager came around to check on our satisfaction, which is always appreciated.
Recommend the baby back ribs (tender, no fat, knife not needed),...bbq'd chicken and pulled pork (both also tender), garlic bread, mac and cheese (tasted homemade), cole slaw (mild, not overly sweet or sour), and potato salad (good texture, with a perfect blend of flavours). Of the four sauces provided, we liked best the original and sweet.
The current (seasonal?) menu offered a bar-b-cuban and a brisket grilled cheese; those, along with corn nuggets and redneck egg rolls, are items on the list to try next time. There is also a salad bar.
The only thing to bring to management's attention: Upon entering there were two employees at the bar area (with no patrons); neither looked at or spoke to us; this was a not-good first impression and something that could be immediately improved. Fortunately the food and server made up for this oversight.More
Good food, and friendly service as you would expect. We visited on a Sunday late afternoon just before the dinner crowd. Good thing, they sold out of ribs and chicken when we were leaving. Good value. Sadly no Alcohol served on Sunday! They are a...local franchise and haven't updated the restaurant to the new corporate model yet.More
