I think Smokey Bones isnt the best, but it isnt the worst. I youre looking for real BBQ food, then this is not the place. I find the ribs to have little meat, and the food cost way more than what its worth. This is a BBQ restaurant you should not eat when youre in Tampa, you have better choices.
Pros: All you can eat ribs (at times) and good BBQ sauce
Cons: Ribs have little meat
The BBQ tatsed like liquid smoke. If people are head over heals for this food, they may not have tried anything else. The combos are good. The selection is very good and convenient, but this is not a place for a harcore bbq food eater.
Pros: good combos
Cons: artificial taste
Food is good, but service is a joke. They stall for days on their all you can eat specials, leaving you sitting there with an empty plate and a rumbling belly after they serve you the sparse amounts that come with their all-you-can eat special. If you got about 3 hours for a meal, you should be able to get two plates of ribs on their all-you-can special.
Pros: Good food
Cons: Service is BAF
I was introduced to Sonny's about 3 years ago and since have joined the Army. Around here, there are no Sonny's to be found, but my drive home includes at least one stop at Sonny's. I am totally hooked on their BBQ Pork sandwhiches topped with sweet BBQ sauce on garlic toast with an order of fries and a side of ranch to dip them in!!! Now that's a good meal. Last time I went home I had my husband try Sonny's, now he too can't wait till were on the road to Florida again. The service is fast, so our pitt stop is only for about 10 minutes, and we eat on the road. Sony's is the best for true BBQ.
