About

Galveston locals can’t get enough of the burgers, the shrimp buns, the gumbo, spaghetti and ‘take it or leave it’ ambience at this favorite old bar and grill, which run by the Puccetti family, who opened the place in 1944.

Sonny’s is a medical student hangout, yes, but the place also virtually wreaks of Galveston lore, and is one of the Island’s venerable institutions.

For sandwich lovers, you simply must start with the cheeseburger, then work your way down to the artery clogging chicken fried steak sandwich, the mouth-watering muffuletta, or the dressed shrimp bun. Of course, for those blue plate types, the shrimp platter, Tex-mex pasta, or Grandma Theresa’s spaghetti and meat sauce will render you immobile.

Get ready. Sonny’s may not look like much; it certainly isn’t fancy. But that’s the charm. And that’s why you’ll soon be falling in love, guaranteed.
