For family get together went to lunch yesterday at Sonny's. Was told to go sit down at the table. We were the first people there which did not bother me. But the waitress was not very attentive at all, and she passed plates and silverware...More

I crave the red neck egg rolls. They are consistent and have good service. I tried the brisket my last visit and really enjoyed.

Eat here often for lunch-large portions and delicious pulled pork. My friend & I share the sampler platter because it is so much food! Pleasant waitstaff and fast service.

We go to Sonny's at least once a month. It's some of the best BBQ in Albany. The servers are always very nice and attentive.

From the moment you walk in until you leave everyone serves you with a smile! Food is served quickly and made fresh. The Brunswick stew is amazing! The burgers are good and flavorful. Okra is also yummy! Pulled pork has a great smokey flavor.

Took twenty minutes to get our drinks and waitress Cathy Murray was as rude as she could be giving us dirty looks about our complaints of why is it taking so long to receive our food. Did not leave a tip and hope future customers...More

If you don't' want to cook you can go there and get a nice meal. I love the baked beans; all the side dishes are pretty good. I like that fact that if I want a quick meal, I don't have to settle for fried...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.
