I have eaten here many times and each time its just as good. This trip I had the baby back ribs that fell off the bone. Side dishes were good also. Restaurant was clean and service was good.

Food is typical for Sonny's BBQ. Service was very good at this location. We didn't have any issues and our server was quick and attentive.

we passed by the area and found Sonny's...We decided to order our take-out lunch. I got lunch special with two sides...I enjoyed my sweet pulled pork bbq with coleslaw and mac and cheese....Wow!! I enjoyed my lunch (had left over which was still so yummy) and the sweet corn bread is always a wonderful treat. My husband got beef brisket... More

The service is always fast and friendly at Sonny's. Food is fresh and quick to the table. The building is clean and nice place to meet local people. The best part about Sonny's is the you know they care about their customers and service.

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.
