Couldn't find anything on the menu that wasn't fattening and greasy or with bacon or BBQ sauce. Would have been nicer if they had other types of foods.

Knew nothing about this restaurant - but had very few choices for my wife who is gluten free...and I found the ribs I ordered way to sweet for my liking. End result - we will avoi dthis chain in the future.

We love stopping here on the way through KY. Food & Service are good! We love the pulled Pork & corn nuggets! The food here is a lot better than Sonny’s in the south.

Always enjoy Sonny’s BBQ and this one in Corbin, Kentucky did not disappoint. The brisket was tender and juicy and I love how they do sweet potato with cinnamon butter and brown sugar while my husband loves their baked beans.

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.
