Very good service, clean restaurant, very good food. It's not buffet place but there is a salad bad. A lot of selection on the salad bad. Menu items had a lot of choices and everyone enjoyed it.

The restaurant has been completely updated, inside and out. The staff is friendly. Not a long wait, friendly staff and really good BBQ and sides. Wish they would go back to the original potato salad, this has too much onion in it.

I decided to stop here while passing through for lunch. I love Sonny's. This Sonny's is actually not bad at all. The standard barbecue was very tasty. My server was nice and gave us great service. Great Sonny's in Brandon, Mississipi.

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.
