We were told by the hostess it would be fine to eat outside on the patio with our Husky. Then another employee came out on the patio and said only service dogs we’re allowed even outside on the patio.More

Average bbq. Can not say too much about it. Pretty standard bbq, nice place, clean, good service and plenty of parking. It is a little crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.

We eat here weekly. Friendly staff, quick service, and good food. Love the brisket (lean), cole slaw, green beans & garlic toast lunch. And the sweet BBQ sauce for sure. Oh yeah, they have the best brewed iced tea.

Ok, Sonny's isn't the best BBQ I've had. What Sonny's is consistent food and service. We asked about the dog friendly outdoor covered patio at this location.
