I decided to stop here while passing through for lunch. I love Sonny's. This Sonny's is actually not bad at all. The standard barbecue was very tasty. My server was nice and gave us great service. Great Sonny's in Brandon, Mississipi.

Consistently....great salad bar and good BBQ make for a happy meal! It has a "picnic" atmosphere....daily-kind-of-southern-life. So if you want fancy dress-up, go elsewhere😀; Salad bar and BBQ hard to beat though!

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.
