This Sonny's is currently under remodel from the tired 1990s look to the modern hipster / millennial designed footprint. I'm not sure if they really smoke their meat in a conventional or not. They have ditched my favorite mild sauce from the table and added...More

Haven't visited this place in a while but our recent lunch experience suggests we won't be heading back any time soon. Service was pleasant but slow despite the restaurant being relatively quiet. Portions were on the small side- my 11 year old daughter finished hers...More

When we visited they suddenly got very busy. But our server kept checking in with us, keeping our huge glasses of ice tea filled. My pull pork sandwich was great. My french fries were not cooked completely. I asked for a sweet potato instead. This...More

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.
