I had the beef brisket sandwich on garlic bread (nice touch) brisket was a little fatty but not bad and it was delicious. The bartender was nice however she took my order from the register and I could not hear her.

Not impressed. I have been to Sonny's before and loved it. This was fair at most. I guess you have to consider its in a tourist area. I wouldn't come here again.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.
