We were on a business trip and stopped here for dinner. Typical Sonny’s food. The only exception was that they currently only sell 3 (basic) types of beer. But, the dinner portion of turkey was good, as well as the beef sandwich. Bigger portions, and...More

I was in for quick lunch while travelling in Florida off I75. The service was fast and reasonable. The brisket sandwich was just ok.

Yes - but not contiguous seating. They'll seat you in an area which will have several large tables. It'll actually work out better for you and the servers overall to be in one area. Ii's best to call head and arrange... 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.
