AT­MOS­PHERE

Bright and airy, with lots of honey-col­ored wood and coun­try flour­ishes to make you feel right at home.

The smell of bar­be­cue cap­ti­vates as you en­ter the door, and the comfy booths en­sure you have lots of el­bow room for tack­ling those de­li­cious, smoky ribs.

OUR FA­VORITE FOOD/PRICE

We started our feast with some Red­neck Egg Rolls, ($6.99), loaded with pulled pork, home­made coleslaw and pep­per jack cheese. Served with a side of smoky ranch dip, it was a de­li­cious t wist on the Asian fa­vorite and had us long­ing for more bar­be­cue good­ness. The pulled pork sand­wich ($6.29) 3120 S. U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, 772-468-9086 Hours: Sun.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Note: Post writ­ers will anony­mously visit a restau­rant in your neigh­bor­hood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week. was an over­sized help­ing of slow-cooked pork nes­tled be­tween two pieces of thick gar­lic toast, ooz­ing with that smoky bar­be­cue taste we’ve come to crave. For $3 more, I made it a “big deal” and added a drink and side of tasty baked beans. The sweet Sonny’s sauce is my fam­ily’s fa­vorite bar­be­cue sauce of all time, but there are sev­eral va­ri­eties on the ta­ble.

REA­SON TO GO

Sonny’s has been serv­ing some of the South’s best bar­be­cue and home­made sauce since 1968. Prices are rea­son­able and por­tions are huge. Even veg­e­tar­i­ans will find some­thing to like with the am­ple soup and salad bar.

It’s the bar­be­cue joint by which we mea­sure all oth­ers. We dined at the Fort Pierce restau­rant. There are other lo­ca­tions in Stu­art and Greenacres.

SER­VICE

Very good. The food came out light­ning-quick and the wait­ress was quick to of­fer drink re­fills.

NOISE LEVEL

Mod­er­ately qui e t on a re­cent Sun­day night.

KID FRIENDLY

The chil­dren’s menu fea­tures minia­ture por­tions of adult fa­vorites: chicken, ribs, pork, hot dogs and mac­a­roni and cheese.

We dined with a 2-yearold who loved his hot dog.
