My first visit. Not sure if I'll go back. The service was very good but the BBQ just so so. Had the Carolina BBQ sandwich. I am picky about my smoked meats and this just didn't make the cut. Maybe it was an off day....More

My wife and I frequent this location quite a bit. The food is almost always good ( it has arrived cold on several occasions but replaced promptly) and the staff is friendly.

This is a typical Sonny's on Highway 441 in Eustis. Good smoked turkey platter could have used a tad more smoked flavor on it. Got corn on the cob and Sonny's still uses margarine with trans fat in it which is annoying and unhealthy. They...More

This is the absolute worst dining experience a person can have. If this is your idea of bar-b-q, time to wake up. Ribs were dried out and small, pulled pork was fatty, and the brisket not lean at all....and top that off with 30 minutes...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.
