Years ago I used to live next to a Sonny's in Ft. Myers and would eat there 6-7 days a week. I would hobble over on my crutches or they would deliver (between the lunch and dinner rush!). Sadly the franchise owner died and I don't know if it was the new owner or corporate, but things changed and it... More

The best bbq and salad bar of all of the Sonny's. The manager takes more pride in the appearance and fully stocked salad buffet. We love this place.

First time in this restaurant, had enjoyed take out at one of their other locations on another occasion. No wait time, excellent service, and very good food. Large servings at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Been there many times. Great menu if you love BBQ you can not miss. Good service. Skip the salad bar; overpriced and mediocre quality. Focus on the BBQ choices, wou will not regret it.

Although the food is very good, I found the waiter to be very impersonal, like a typical fast food counter order experience. We arrived a little later in the dinner hour. I did not appreciate all the dirty tables left for the duration of our time there. They needed some busboys!

We have driven up and down FL 19 in Spring Hill many times a week and when we pass Sonny’s the parking lot is always full and for a very good reason, the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Sonny’s has a very good menu with some well-priced Lunch Specials. Anywhere in Florida Sonny’s is an excellent restaurant for Lunch... 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.
