Both the food and service were great! I'd definitely recommend for a quick meal if you're in the area.

Really good BBQ, everything was cooked proper, had delicious sides and bbq sauces to fit your taste buds, and portions were well sized. I would recmmend this place to a friend.

A good option for cheap meal for the family. Not as good as some of the other Sonny's I have been to. Our waiter had limited interest in helping us. Near shopping outlets with plenty of parking.More

8/4/2017 My husband ordered the Pork 3-Ways. He said his ribs were very dry, but the rest of the pork was very good...$14.99 I ordered the Bakd Potato...$2.59 we ordered to go. The baked potato was plain but the sauce made the potato awesome

We had lunch at Sonny's. We always eat at Sonny's when in Florida. The service was great and so was the food.

Sonny's never disappoints. Good food and friendly southern service. We were staying at the Fairfield Inn and this was an easy drive for bbq dinner. Got to try the new Redneck Eggrolls - talk about fusion! Crispy crunchy outside, pulled pork inside and a side...More

live nearby and eat here often. BBQ is usually very good but chicken tends to be pretty dry. Staff is very attentive.

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.
