We love Sonny's and have a location near our home that is much newer. This location is the original decor and although clean enough, is lacking atmosphere. The food, however, is just as good as any Sonny's-wonderful! I had the baby back rib special for...More

You can't go wrong with Sonny's BBQ. It was a bit off the interstate but worth the drive. I later found one on Semora close to the Ace rental car return and airport.

Waited for the waiter to acknowledge my presence. He never did. A waiter from another section came over about 15 minutes after I came in. I ordered the rib dinner. Meat was not very tender but tasted good.

I had the chance to go for a solo mission for a good ribs/meat restaurant without the grumbling family in tow, so I chose this Sonnys as I had happy memories of this chain from previous visits to Florida in the 80s and 90s, and...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.
