Above and beyond the average Sonny’s in service, food, and environment. Staff very friendly. Food was hot and perfectly cooked.

I'd driven by Sonny's any number of times going to and leaving Brunswick, but this time I decided to give the place a try. The parking lot was encouraging with lots of local tags, city workers, and Brunswick's finest going there for lunch also. NB:...More

We were returning from Florida after spending Christmas with family. We keep seeing signs on I95 for Sonny's BBQ and decided to stop. The brisket was tender, moist and smokey. The BBQ chicken was cooked to perfection and the cole slaw was fresh and crisp....More

have eaten here a few times. Food is good, not great. However, fairly priced and predicable. If you like southern food, you will like it.

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.
