Grow with Us

We love supporting your success and promoting from within. Over the years we’ve had dishwashers become Pitmasters. And servers become owners.

Hourly Positions

Enjoy great pay, a flexible schedule and workin’ with people who truly care about you and the community.

Our Front of House crew provides unforgettable experiences for guests by havin’ a good time servin’ up the best BBQ with a generous helpin’ of Southern hospitality.  


Our servers don’t just serve. They help make memories that keep our guests cravin’ more. To serve here, you gotta know the basics—great service, pre-bussing, stocking service areas—but most importantly, you gotta create an authentic experience slathered in Southern hospitality.


Not all our locations have bars, but for those that do, our bartenders keep the good times flowin’. Whether it’s mixin’ drinks, servin’ food to guests seated at the bar or keepin’ the bar fully stocked with liquor, mixers, beer and other supplies, our bartenders add a little extra pep to the party.


The good times in our restaurants start and end with our hosts. Whether it’s greetin’ and seatin’ guests, keepin’ a neat and clean foyer and dining area or invitin’ guests to return as they leave, our hosts make sure guests feel a true Southern-style welcome—friendly, cheery, and comfortable.


Cashiers are our go-to folks. From greetin’ guests at the front register and drive-thru and accounting for transactions to preparin’ and fulfillin’ take-out orders and answerin’ the phone, our cashiers add to the energy of the shift and bring an extra helpin’ of Southern hospitality.

Our Values

  • Be Passionate
  • Do Cool Stuff & Have the Most Fun
  • Be Trustworthy
  • Put Others First

But to earn the coveted Certified Sonny’s Pitmaster® title, all hopefuls must graduate from our Pitmaster Training (P.I.T.)
