Decided to try them when meeting family as we lost our local Sonny's years ago. Not much has changed in the offerings, but the salad bar was not quite up to what we remember. Most of the items seemed fresh, but more limited than before with fewer selections available. The BBQ itself was about the same. Still not bad for... More

I had the Sonny's Sampler and all of it was very good. I are in the bar since it is first come first serve. Nicole was absolutely great. Friendly and professional at the same time. Atmosphere is good for a BBQ place, clean and relaxed. Over all I have been pleasantly surprised by my visit.

Until last Wednesday I had never heard of Sonny's. Its like the fast-food of BBQ. The property: The restaurant was either very busy just prior to me arriving or they were extremely short staffed (likely both). I waited 5 or so minutes for a host/hostess to seat me but nobody came, the restaurant wasn't busy - maybe 1/3 tables were... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the experience we had here. The restaurant was quaint and friendly. the waitress was great! I had the ribs and pulled pork for $9.99 it was excellent. My wife had the BBQ salad and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also order the corn nugget app - awesome but very sweet. We also got 10% off by... More

After an exhausting day at the theme parks, Sonny's was close to our hotel and we were pleasantly surprised on a great value and excellent food, not to forget about the great staff! We were treated extremely well!

Typical of Sonny's BBQ restaurants, the food is good and the prices are very reasonable. This particular location is very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I especially appreciate this restaurant because they give back to the community by donation to youth groups.

Came here for a quick business lunch. Had the half BBQ chicken option with two sides. Best chicken I ever tasted. It was smoked and also barbecued to perfection. The selection of 4 BBQ sauces was also great. Very reasonably priced. Thanks!

I came in for an early dinner on Saturday afternoon and was delighted at the quick service and especially the flavor and presentation of the Baby Back Rib dinner. The cole slaw, Beans, and Cornbread were equally as good. Also, the portions were generous; I did not leave Sonny's hungry. And, the cost was very reasonable.

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.
