Sonny's has the best BBQ. I am lucky to live close to it. We eat there about 3 times a month. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend the pulled pork or baby back ribs.

Craving for BBQ? This is the place to go. Try BBQ combo plate. Smoked turkey is delicious along with the dry rub ribs. Very friendly helpful waitstaff. Serves large beverage cups.

We arrived at 6:00 on a Saturday night, 18 people in our group. They were able to seat us in 10-15 minutes at 3 tables back to back. The way the tables and booths are set up it really was not an option to seat us all together. Our server was fast, personable and got it all correct !! The food is very good, the menu has many options and combos so it easy to get what you want. Many of the selections have an all-you-can-eat option available. The cost for that option was very reasonable. Our server paid attention and was very good about brining more food promptly to those in the group who were in the all-you-can-eat group. Casual dining reasonably priced and great food.
I will return and will recommend it to others.

Walked in and placed takeout order on Friday at 5:00. Kara helped me decide amount of food to order. Food was ready in very short while. Ribs, beans, coleslaw were absolutely delicious. There was no hassle

I was very happy with the takeout - ribs and chicken, with slaw, beans and a corn muffin. It was enough for two meals - to be honest - the best, most unique thing was the corn muffin
