There is a Cowboys restaurant, there now, but has VERY mixed reviews... I have not eaten there, but many say it’s small portions with high prices. It may be good however.

IMHO, Sonny's does not serve real BBQ. Its a nice smoked meat but not comparable to true southern BBQ that is availbile elsewhere, but what the heck, those from north of the mason-dixon line won't realize the difference.

The chicken is always good. I tried the sliced pork and it was very good. The service was quick and food was hot. Order the fried okra was a nice treat.

My ribs were tough. That pretty much says it all. It just was not that good and I expected it to be. I don't recommend.

Barbeque is usually overcooked. It is convenient to go through the drive through for a quick meal. Prices are a little high for what you get.

We've eaten at the Sonny's in Panama City Beach and thought this one would be the same, with good food and good service. Boy, were we wrong. The service was slow and we had to ask several times for multiple things. The food was okay...More

I was nervous about eating here after reading some of the reviews but found it to be a typical Sonny's. Same type of decor, service and food that I get back home in Tallahassee. We were a group of 12 (kids, teens and adults) and...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.
