I love this place really good. They bring the food out really fast also. You can pick your bbq sauce its on the table. A great place to eat. Only one thing is no beer. So if you want that there is none

The menu was somewhat reduced since my last visit, but the flavor was the same...great! Our server was very courteous, friendly, and prompt. She checked in 4 times. Our food arrived in less than 5 minutes after we ordered, and it was correct. It was a wonderful dining in experience.

I like BBQ so I usually go when I get a chance. Sonny's was good not great. I ordered a sampler platter with sliced pork, spare ribs & wings. The ribs were good. I likely should have ordered the pulled pork because the sliced pork was a disappointment. It was the first time I have had BBQ wings and they... More

The food is always good but the service is hit or miss. We go at least every other week and enjoy the food. The ribs are the best around.

At the suggestion of the hotel, we went here for dinner and it was awesome! I really like the sweet bar-b-q sauce. We would go again. Staff was friendly.

If you like pulled pork then get in there! I love when they offer their all you can eat pulled pork, great deal! Sonny's has the best pulled pork hands down! I haven't eaten anything but their pulled pork because it's so good. If you like pulled pork you need to try Sonny's! They do offer a good salad bar... More

Had the brisket sandwich and even though the taste was really smoky and good along with the variety of bbq sauces to try, the meat was very fatty and comprised a good part of the meat. Even ordered another as we were still hungry and the waitress said she would trim as much fat as she could. The second order... 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.
