My meal: Full rack of baby back pork ribs, french fries, garlic bread, corn nuggets and Coke®

Several weeks back I had some relatives in town and took the opportunity to have lunch at Sonny’s with a “cousin-in-law.” We had a good chat on the drive over and I even promised I’d try to find my golf clubs for the next time he visited.

Now, the new Sonny’s seems a lot more spacious than when they were at their previous location and obvious consideration for handicapped patrons was put into the new design. As a result, wheelchair ramps on the sidewalks, a large entrance foyer between the double sets of doors and plenty of tables in both smoking and nonsmoking sections should enhance the dining experience for all disabled patrons.

It was a little after noon and we were quite hungry when we got to our seats. Once there we were quickly offered menus by our waitress, Genetta. She seemed very friendly as she took our drink orders, Coke® for me and a root beer for my cousin, which she promptly brought to our table.

Sonny’s menus are very complete and nicely done with photos and descriptions of quite a few items. I wanted to compare the baby back ribs to some others I’d eaten recently so I ordered a full rack.

My cousin may have been in more of a feeding frenzy than I since he ordered the “all you can eat” special of St. Louis style ribs. I chose french fries but later remembered the excellent baked sweet potatoes available here. Oh well ... next time. I also ordered the corn nuggets that my wife introduced me to several years back. Yum.
