First off, this is a great place - clean, nice, new - and the food is great. Very good BBQ - lots of options, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, ribs, etc., and great sides - in fact they have some of the best onion rings ever....More

The food was fast and great. The price was low compared to other BBQ that we have gone to with equal or better quality. We had the ribs and loved it.

No matter where we visit a Sonnys it is always quality food and excellent service. Vgreat BBQ at affordable pricing. Smoked turkey sandwich with a baked sweet potato is off the chain. Wish there was a Sonnys by our house.

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.
