We were visiting Kennedy Space Center and were looking for a good rib place. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we would skip Sonny's but upon asking a worker at the center they said Sonny's was delish and it was. The ribs were excellent. We had a sampler platter and everything was tasty. Then we had the peach... More

Ordered a dinner meal consisting of pulled pork and BBQ chicken. Both meats were so overcooked, it felt more like I was eating jerky than the juicy meat I was hoping for. The coffee tasted burnt. This is a moderately priced restaurant and I was not expecting gourmet food, but this meal made me sorry we came.

They are remodeling and the inside looks worse . Plus they have taken several popular items off of the menu. One Sunday afternoon we were seated for 20 minutes and no one cm to get our order. They have seriously gone down hill.

It takes forever if you need change. the last time I went in the server walked past me 4 times before I walked up to the register to talk to the manager and told him "either you takes... More

Went there for dinner on a business trip. Service was good, and like every Sonny's that I have ever been to, the BBQ was excellent. Good prices for a filling and tasty meal.

This was always one of our favorite BBQ restaurants anywhere. But on our most recent visit after not visiting the town for a while, we found big changes for the worse here. The pulled pork is now VERY greasy and oily. Most of my serving was a big piece of pure fat until I returned it. Too bad I forgot... More

Very good food. Pretty tired decor. Cutlery been through dishwasher about 1,000 times. Very very friendly waitstaff. Good value for huge portions. Great deal for BBQ but what does a Canadian boy like me know about BBQ. I liked it!! Would go again.

Sonny's is a good, reasonably priced restaurant. Their BBQ ribs are generally pretty good. I would rate them as an okay place to eat, but nothing to write home about.

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.
