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 very updated Sonny’s. We have had good meals and great service. The portions are always good. The beverages are in jumbo glasses.

Thank James L

Sonny's is consistently a good place to go for bar-b-que. The prices have gone up some, but you can always rely on good food. I usually get the pork which is great. The chicken is a nice treat and the ribs are always delicious. We do not eat there as often because of the price increases and some of the quantity has gotten less.

I love to visit and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. The baby back ribs are awesome. I also love getting the fries in the metal server. They are always hot and great.

It's been awhile since we have eaten at Sonny's because we had not been happy with it but we gave another try tonight and was pleased with our server Brittany. She got our order correct and kept checking on us. Our food was very good.

After being seated promptly we proceeded to wait 6 minutes before having to ask hostess if a server was handling our table. She finally came and apologized stating she didn't know she had the table. Smoke turkey was dry and French fries were cold and wimpy. The wings were decent but not great. We would not return to this location. Need better management of staff and food prep.
