A good option for cheap meal for the family. Not as good as some of the other Sonny's I have been to. Our waiter had limited interest in helping us. Near shopping outlets with plenty of parking.More

We had lunch at Sonny's. We always eat at Sonny's when in Florida. The service was great and so was the food.

Sonny's never disappoints. Good food and friendly southern service. We were staying at the Fairfield Inn and this was an easy drive for bbq dinner. Got to try the new Redneck Eggrolls - talk about fusion! Crispy crunchy outside, pulled pork inside and a side...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.
