Sonny's BBQ Florida City Homestead

What started as a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida, Sonny’s BBQ now has over 100 locations nationwide. Floyd “Sonny” Tillman and his wife Lucille began the Sonny’s tradition of slow smoking meat over oak for up to 12 hours in 1968. Over 40 years later, savory BBQ goodness in a feel-good and homey environment continues to be a part of the Sonny’s BBQ signature way!

About the Restaurant

Sonny's BBQ Florida City • Homestead

Southern BBQ at its finest lives at Sonny’s. This Florida City joint, right off the highway, specializes in authentic BBQ favorites as well as savory sides and desserts. Sonny’s was founded by Floyd “Sonny” Tillman in 1968. In 1991, Bob Yarmuth purchased the company, kept the iconic Sonny’s name, and continues to be the CEO to this day.

This BBQ chain offers authentic Southern cuisine at over 100 locations across nine states. The menu is composed stick-to-your-ribs favorites such as baby back ribs, pulled pork, chicken, brisket and burgers, slow-cooked to perfection and hardwood smoked. We can’t forget about the delicious and generously-sized portions of appetizers and side dishes. The question that we all have is how exactly does Sonny’s make their mouthwatering ribs? The process involves wrapping the slab of ribs in aluminum foil halfway through cooking. That is the Sonny’s secret to making the meat extra tender and it also adds layers of flavor.

Every year, Sonny’s pit masters, franchise owners, managers and even office personnel gather to compete in an epic rib-cooking competition. This year, John Hokanson with Team Awesome Q won the title of Sonny’s Rib Cook-Off Champion! The competition ribs are served at Sonny’s BBQ locations for a limited time!
