The 'all you can eat' dinners are aptly named. Lots of meat. Lots of sides and plenty of drink. Bring your appetite. Servers are friendly and on the spot with refills of drink and food. This is a great place if you are very hungry and working on a budget. Families are welcome with ample parking.

I had the pulled pork, wife and son had St. Louis ribs, everything was good. Also this Sonny's has a bar and had a two for one special on draft beers.The Sonny's on Tyrone does not have a bar.

We have been visiting my family in Largo for 10+ years and thought it was a fast food restaurant so anytime my husband requested to try it, I said no. He got my Dad to agree to go for dinner. We had a wonderful meal. The ribs were perfect, pork was great, and chicken was good. We will definitely visit... More

Awesome food every time, top notch quality, excellent service and great portions. When there's the urge for BBQ, Sonny's consistency is hard to beat. You can't beat the variety of options for the price.

We eat here frequently on Sundays. My mom is not as fast as she used to be so we get a table close to the door. They are always willing to accomodate her. The food is great as well. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I went here for dinner on a Thursday night and it was not very crowded. I was seated quickly and waited for my server. I had the sampler platter and it was very good. I don't recommend the ribs because there was not much meat just a whole lot of bone. The other items, brisket, chicken, potato, coleslaw, and cornbread... More

Ok, do you go to a restaurant to eat? Or, for the experience? For myself, they are coupled together. Here at this Sonny's the food was good and quick. The wait staff was very attentive (Tiff!). They have a few BBQ sauce samplings. My favorite was the sweet.

The atmosphere here is very nice. The food taste great and the staff is very friendly. Every Wednesday night they have all you can eat wings for 1499, and that includes a drink and all sides. It is definitely worth the money.

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.
