Great BBQ, Great Service, Great price!!!! – One of the best dining experiences i have had in a long time. The server was very attentive and was quick on the refills. I had the baby back ribs combo which were even better than my father smokes!! And if that wasent enough the deserts were out of this world. Try the peach cobbler. Anyway thats that and try sonny's for a great dining experience!
great baby backs – I really loved the all you can eat babies and the great service. The price were a great value!!
Love the pulled pork – Like that it was a friendly atmosphere. The server came back to fill our tea even though we didn't ask. My friend had the new grilled chicken with a bunch of toppings and we shared some of those corn nuggets which should be a dessert! I had the pulled pork on the garlic bread, Wow! I'll be back!
BBQ chicken sandwich was incredible. – Had the BBQ chicken sandwich at the Cobb Pkwy restaurant. It was delicious, the manager came and greeted our table. I thought customer service was dead...not the case at this Sonny's restaurant.
Inexpensive barbecue is the main draw at this reliable Southeastern chain. – In Short
Owner Sonny Tillman has been serving the same Southern barbecue and fixings since 1968. A common roadside stop, Sonny's offers low prices and barbecue; roomy booths, wagon-wheel chandeliers and homey craft art are the standard dining room decor. House barbecue sauce, available sweet, regular or hot, spices up large helpings of smoked beef, pork, chicken, turkey and ribs. Sides like fresh fried okra, onion rings and barbecue beans complement the entrees.
Reliably good – No, it's not the best barbecue in the world. But, especially for a chain, Sonny's delivers. A barbecue beef sandwich, with the sweet sauce and some cole slaw, french fries and a big 'ol Coke and I'm a happy camper. What's with all these barbecue snobs???
BAD EXPERIENCE – Worst imitation BBQ ever! If you love BBQ, DO NOT STOP HERE! Have tried it twice, both times the meat was too dry, with little flavor. Sauce is only mediocre at best. The sides do not raise the rating any at all. I call this imitation BBQ because it is tastes more like baked meat rather than slow roasted.
Sonny's (you're kidding) – To put Sonny's in the classification of Atlanta's Best Q is like comparing the Mona Lisa to a black velvet Elvis. Sorry but Sonny's is NOT Bar-B-Q.
no taste – whoever put sonny's barbeque (a chain mind you) as a top ten barbeque joint needs to have there taste buds removed. Here is an idea Rib Shack in buckhead. You know the place right next door to an apparent top ten outdoor place to eat. How intermezzo didn't make that list is rather interesting. Anyway by putting Sonny's on the top ten list, this city guide has demonstrated its worth. The listings on these guides is horrid. You really need someone with taste evaluating. I will give you a couple hints. An interesting approach to Ice cream = Jakes. Coffee and dessert = cafe intermezzo. A little unknown place and one of the best restaurants in Atlanta "OSCARS!!!!" Further for a unique stylish approach to southwestern cuisine not to mention a Kickin Margarita you gotta go agauve all the way.
Barbeque – This is one of my hometowns outstanding barbeque resturants. The atmosphere is great for down home barbeuqe. Love the ribs,chicken and beef and love the sauce. Cant get no better in my hometown in FL. havent been there for years but if I want brbque I go there. Prices are great and cole slaw is good. Their sandwiches are great as well even though the meat is dry the sauce makes up for it! Love Sonnys real pit barbeque. USed to go there all the time.
