For a person who doesn't really like BBQ this was a 3 time visit in a week. The service terrific, food outstanding, price was so reasonable. On weekends the apps were 1/2 price in bar and beer was BOGO. There smoked chicken wings .. omg the best ever wings. A must try restaurant. Close to the hotels on TG Blvd.

First stop in Orlando and it was terrific. Great food at great prices. It is nice to have choices for sauces. The sweet baked potato was great with the cinnamon butter. We had ribs, pulled pork, and wings which were all terrific.

Sonny's has always been my favorite barbecue restaurant. Typically, we would order "to go" the family feast for four deal. I've got a family of 4 and this deal has so much food it feeds us for 2 nights. For this visit in Apopka I was with guy friends after a golf round. They had cold beers which was refreshing... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full. Service was efficient and staff friendly. Food was very good. Always enjoy good BBQ. The Mac & Cheese and BBQ Beans are very tasty. Prices are good. Looks like many seniors eat here. So if they keep coming back it must be good.

Always make it a point to go to Sonny's on my layover. Great pulled pork all you can eat lunch option for $12.99. Add a sweet tea and a few choices for sauce and you are set to go. Staff is always checking in with you and willing to get you refills on beverages and food. Even tried to give... More

We came here for lunch on our way to a movie. The BBq sandwiches were great, we could hardly finish them. The salad was real good also.We really enjoyed it, and it was reasonably priced.

I love this place! Ate at a Sonny's a while ago on our first visit to Disney World. Thought it was a great find when it was simpler with bench tables. The décor is more expensive now, and the food seems to be tastier. We had the Ribs for Two...more than enough food for us. The service was fast and... More

We came here for a late weeknight dinner. The place was very busy but we were seated in a booth immediately. The service was good, the food was good, and we were very happy with our meal. I enjoyed the brisket and the ribs were delicious.

For a BBQ place I expect more but food is ok. Some good appetizers k chicken good but the ribs need some work.

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.
