Waitress left myself and two other customers sitting in the drive thru, while she came outside to retrieve something from her car and didn't have the common sense to tell us that they were close. She ran back inside, turned off the lights and waited for us to just give up and leave.

I recently had lunch at the Sonny's location in Kingsland off GA Hwy 40. I decided to try the brisket. I knew I was taking a risk because brisket can be tough if not cooked properly or warmed up too often. This brisket, though, was a success. It had a light smokey taste and was not tough or cold.

We have gone here before and it was good. We had a late lunch here yesterday and will not be back. Sliced pork was lukewarm and baked potato was also lukewarm. Pork was all fat. Good service and was clean

Sonny's is always dependable for a good barbecue. It's quick and delicious. I was in and out in less than 40 minutes. I had the three pork platter. It was more than I could eat. I always recommend Sonny's.

Pretty good bbq for a chain, Iv'e tried the baby back ribs which are often on special, the smoked turkey is delicious as well. Iv'e had a couple of sandwiches, and everything is always smoked to a good flavor, the red neck egg rolls are different, and tasty too! They have a drive through which makes it very convenient.

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.
