I loved Sonny's in the past. The food is ok, nothing special. The hubby wanted to come. 😉 The sweet potato was the best thing there! He loves the salad bar. I thought it was ok.

Get tge southern eggs rolls. I can actually leave it right there. But, truly this franchise is consistent in menu items and Decent prices for BBQ. I love their banana pudding too.

On the way south from Rome and trust this Chain for consistency and were not disappointed! Great ribs and chicken combo, slaw but the beans were a little too heavy on the tomato and sugar. Wife had s very good pulled pork sandwich, fries and slaw.

We ate here last Sat and tonight. Service was great. Food is always solid and as expected. We enjoy this chain and even the one in Perry. My son loves loves the sliced pork. We all love the sweet sauce. We even buy it for home.

Went for dinner on Friday night, not crowded at all. Sat right away, service was ok. Food came out very slow, waited about 20 minutes. About half way into my food, I noticed a small piece of plastic in it. The waitress said," I'm so sorry, that's just from the bag the pork was in". She didn't try to replace... 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.
