I know this is a chain but I had not visited before. I only had the salad bar and onion rings. The salad bar was great until I saw a bug on the lettuce. I know this happens when you are dealing with lettuce si I did not wig out. Service was good and food was good based on what... More

Great waitress with Charity. Food is fair-good. My child's smoked turkey was dry but the waitress was prompt and said if she didn't like it was prompt about bringing her tender turkey. I had smoked chicken and sweet potatoes and it was on point! Good place for something different.

Chain resturants can be hit or miss but Sonny's is usually good, a dieters Rub plate gave me flavor and a salad plate, my wife had sliced turkey per her usual, she remarked that it was tasty.

I came here based on the good reviews but I did not have the same experience. The service was great. The food was bad. It was some of the driest chicken I ever ate. It must have been cooking for hours. The corn was soggy. probably cooking as long as the chicken. Don't go here. This is not good BBQ... More

We were thrilled that there is a Sonny's in Dublin, Ga. We were greeted the minute we walked in the door and quickly escorted to a booth and our drink order taken in a matter of seconds. Our waitress was wonderful. She was very attentive and made sure the food was hot. We had the corn fritter appetizer. They are... More

Last fall we received a Sonny's discount card in the mail. That first visit to this location was a great surprise. The food was fresh, well prepared and tasty. My husband and I usually get a plate of some sort and always have a take-home box for another meal. The pulled pork, pulled chicken, chicken breast are always consistently good.... More

I have enjoyed eating at various Sonny's restaurants for years; but it has been quite a while since I had eaten at one. This was the first time I have eaten at this particular one. I was greeted and seated immediately. I was also quickly brought a HUGE glass of ice water; loved that. My server still kept this glass... 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.
