I have had mixed reviews of this place. I have been about 4 times. It's just decent BBQ...nothing special. My neighbors love it and that is why I keep going back. I feel it's not got enough taste, isn't juicy and the service is so-so....More

We always head to Sonny's BBQ when we're in the Spring Hill area. They give you a nice portion of whatever you order. They have a great AUCE salad bar too.

We love Sonny's BBQ very much. This location has been a family favorite for many years. The food is always served quickly and delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Love that sweet BBQ sauce! Ribs are always so tender.

Once again not disappointed in service, prices or food. Their salad bar is fantastic. The portions are very reasonably portioned for the prices. Pleasant atmosphere at most anytime you go. If you want BBQ at a reasonable price then this chain restaurant fits the bill.

The best BBQ place around and as the title says it's the new favorite! I had the brisket and it was by far the best I've had, reasonably priced too.

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.
