I eaten there a few times. When you order a bbq sandwich they never chopped the bbq enough for me. The cole slaw taste good. They have the crinkle French fries. The service is alright. The prices are too high.

How is the catering?

I have been to the restaurant and the food was good, however I would like to know if anyone has used their catering service and if so, how was your experience. What did you like and what did you dislike? My daughter has an upcoming wedding and I really want everything to be perfect. Anyone have a catering review to post?

Good restaurant for a quick-meal

Tried Sonny's on a friend's recommendation...

Liked the ribs very much, and the sides were plentiful. The staff was super-friendly. The restaurant is AWESOME to be non-smoking!! Perhaps needed a little more attention to the clean-up detail after table service but it was a pretty busy evening there. Will definitely return.

Excellent barbecue

I've always enjoyed Sonny's barbecue regardless of where. I think the ribs are meaty and delicious and the sides are wonderful. Go Sonny's Go!!

Red tinged meat unappetizing

The barbecue at Sonny's is at best not worthy of true NC barbecue. It has a red discoloration, supposedly from their cooking process. The flavor is not very complex and does require their sauce to be edible. The BBQ chicken is terribly dry and their ribs are fatty and not very meaty. They serve plenty of greasy fries and loads of dry garlic toast to fill you up. The baked beans are soupy and the beans are mealy with not much flavor. The cole slaw is also soupy and not fresh in appearance.

DO NOT GO!

If you want good ""Q"", stay away from Sonny's. The meat is not good at all. The sauce is the best thing to mask the taste of the liquid smoke that is used in excess.

Its ok

I would rank sonnys as average as far as the food goes.....not the best tasting barbq in charlotte but yet the service is pretty good. I would choose the Old Hickory House over this place anyday for the food

horrible

What a disappointment. With all the great bbq in town, this just may be the worst one. I have given it 2 tries, but will not go back. I will NEVER go back. Bland sauce.

Try one of the areas many bbq places and it will be a better experience than this place.

Cold, Fatty and Tastes Bad

The food is horrible! They bring you sliced or chopped unseasoned meat which is already cold when it comes to your table, then expect you to pour cold sauces out of sticky squirt bottles on the table on it and call it barbeque.
The first meat I received had so much fat on it that even the waitress took pity on me when she saw me trying to pick thru the chopped meat. She suggested sliced meat, to avoid as much fat as possible. The second serving of meat looked better (I could cut off the fat), but tasted like tender, dry, cold, leather. I tried 2-3 sauces. Cold unseasoned meat dipped in cold bad sauces don't add up to BBQ.
I've grown up eating BBQ from all over. I love both vinegar and tomato based. Sonny's does NOT measure up.

Surprised, and bloated like a stuck pig

For a chain, this place had some good bbq. Pulled pork a little on the dry side, beans were great, ribs a liitle dry too. On the whole, good food.

Plentiful isn't here

While the food is good, I didn't find it at all outstanding. And on a dollar per pound basis, this is probably the worst BBQ value I've encountered in Charlotte. Large pieces of bread and french fries cover 80% of your plate while BBQ portions are very small. The variety of sauces offered is a plus. Staff is friendly, although sometimes a little slow at peak hours due to the staff to customer ratio.
