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.

This is not the place to go when you want real BBQ. They do smoke on site, but it is nothing spectacular. However, there speed of service is great, so you can do a quick lunch there.

When we go south we like to have BBQ at least once. We enjoyed the food and it is good. The service was a bit lackluster at this Sonny's and we almost missed it as only the "S" was lit in the sign. They are all about BBQ and they do it well.

Good Barbeque and Friendly Service.....but, the prices are a little high. Kids' Meals are a bit more reasonable.....but the portions are still a bit stingy for the prices. There are many more reasonable dining spots where you can eat well for half the price.

We arrived and were sat. The hostess was kind enough to change the television station and our meal went downhill from there. Our waiter, while he seemed like a nice young man, he was extremely slow at everything. It even took over 5 minutes to get the check and pay. Overall the food took a ridiculously long time to come to the table and the excuses, heard by our table and all those around us, was that the kitchen was busy but then we were told that they were dead all day prior. This was horrible. Once the food came out it wasn't even hot - the brisket was luke warm at best, and the turkey was the same. We were very disappointed with our visit, and we had been looking forward to it, too.

As BBQ restaurants go, this one is one of the best! Good service, generous portions, good service. Recently had Sonny's cater picnic for 20 people. The did an excellent job by covering every minute detail, had it ready when we arrived to pick it up and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, There was more than enough food with leftovers going home with the picnicers. We have eaten there often, but first time for a catering event. They were reat!
