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.

Couldn't find anything on the menu that wasn't fattening and greasy or with bacon or BBQ sauce. Would have been nicer if they had other types of foods.

Knew nothing about this restaurant - but had very few choices for my wife who is gluten free...and I found the ribs I ordered way to sweet for my liking. End result - we will avoi dthis chain in the future.

Stopped for gas and walked across the lot to Sonny's. Picked up a Sweet Carolina Sandwich and it was great. It was large, more than enough to satisfy me. They had a nice selection of sauces to put on it. They were doing a lot of takeout as it was only 11 AM, but the restaurant looked pleasant and the bathroom was clean. Service was nice and quick.

We love stopping here on the way through KY. Food & Service are good! We love the pulled Pork & corn nuggets! The food here is a lot better than Sonny’s in the south.

My husband and I have stopped here before as we head south on 75. Food is always good. This time we ordered the St Louis style ribs. These are absolutely the best ribs I have ever had! So Smokey and sweet. Our waitress, Heaven, was a delight.
