I knew something was amiss when we arrived for dinner at 6:00 on a Friday and the place was practically empty. We ordered and when the food arrived we all thought "really?!?!". The portions were extremely small, like the pieces of chicken were tiny, only...More

We enjoyed our roadside stop here as expected. I would recommend and more thorough cleaning, it seemed a little sub-par for Sonny's. However, the food was good and there is no reason not to eat here.

Have eaten at many Sonnys and the food is always very good. Only problem with this location was the dirty bath rooms, both, and this store looks very tired. Could use some TLC.

After a long, 500-mile drive through crazy rain and wind, we were ready for a relaxing meal when we stopped for the night in Perry, GA. Sonny's BBQ hit the spot. Great salad bar and service. Food was good but my wife's pulled pork plate...More

We stopped by Sonny's about three years ago for a great meal and the hubby suggested we stop for dinner on our travels back home. We should have known better when there were just a few cars in the parking lot. This place looked like...More

Great BBQ and very convenient location to the interstate and Motel 6 (just across the street from Motel 6). Employees are very friendly and go out of their way to be sure everything is perfect.

Driving home from FL, we kept seeing signs for Sonny's BBQ. I wanted to go there simply because my son's name is Sonny and we can never find anything with his name on it. After going and eating there I was so glad we did!...More

Eating at Sonny's is always a treat because living in Indiana, we are very far from any location. It's a bit pricey for a sandwich, side and drink, but the sweet tea is great. We get sent off with gigantic to-go cups of sweet tea,...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.
