Sliced pork big deal meal is our favorite. Sweet tea is southern sweet and perfect compliment to the BBQ. Restaurant has been completely remodeled too.

I have to own up to being a Sonny's fan from back in the 90s when I lived in North Florida. They have recently updated the look, but kept the same great food. You still can't beat the lunch deal. The smoked meats on garlic...More

Great BBQ at an affordable price. The BBQ Beans are the best in the business. We stop here everytime we pass through town. We recommend Sonny's.

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.
