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.

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 at best. Definitely not the Sonny's we had remembered. Will not be returning to this one.
