Food was good, service was good. We stopped in as we were passing through. It met our needs. It was close to closing time but the staff was very courteous and accommodating.

We had heard of Sonny's from our southern friends but had never been. We're not disappointed! Amazing BBQ! Pulled pork and brisket were our favorites. Corn bread great too. Highly recommend.

Waitress left myself and two other customers sitting in the drive thru, while she came outside to retrieve something from her car and didn't have the common sense to tell us that they were close. She ran back inside, turned off the lights and waited...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.
