Driving through I-95 and came over for dinner. The service is a little slow but the fella is very nice and apologetic. I had the chicken with potato salad and vegetables. The chicken is tender and juicy, very delicious. It is better than the $30...More

Kudos to Sonny's for keeping their great recipe. Since I came to Florida in 1993, I have always loved their pulled pork sandwich on garlic bread with cole slaw. As always--- it was great. We were stuck towing a van back to Florida in the...More

Worth the time it takes off the interstate. We ordered take out and got good hot fried okra and french fries. Glad I tried the redneck eggrolls, recipe could use some tweaking, but a great idea. The pulled pork sandwich had potential--pork was good, but...More

You get a ton of food for the price! The sauces were very good as well, they have five on the table for you to try. The service was very nice and very fast! We had barely any wait time and the food was delicious!...More

Redneck eggrolls were great. They have a great salad bar. Hubby got the ribs and they fell off the bones. Great sweet tea and great service.

The owner is OCD about cleanliness and it shows. The food is excellent. The staff is knowledgable and very friendly. Their sweet sauce can't be beat. The coleslaw is like Sonny's used to make it, fine and very creamy and very delicious. The Babyback ribs...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.
