Sonny's BBQ

Hi everyone!

March is getting closer!!! We are big fans of Carolina BBQ (but in Montreal it does not exist) and I saw there is a place called Sonny's that has BBQ. Any idea if it is East Carolina (vinegar) or tomato-based sauce?

If not, is there a Carolina BBQ place less than an hour away?

There is a place that gets rave reviews just north of Ft. Lauderdale, but do not want to spend 4 hours round trip for dinner.

Thanks!

Sonny's is definitely sweet tomato-based sauce.

We'll be setting out shortly to Vero (1st trip there) and I have a quick question.

Do they sell single muffins anywhere onsite? We are not big breakfast eaters. Do they have a bakery type place or a general store?

Thanks

Not just that, Sonny's is plain gross. Definitely not the BBQ you're looking for.

There's about what you'd expect from the grocery section of any DVC in the general store. The baked good onsite are not that good. There is a Fresh Market in Vero and they have an amazing bakery with all sorts of delicious muffins and etc. If you have a car, it may be worth going and stocking up on breakfast goodies.

Is that a decent grocery store? I need to figure out where we should do our grocery shopping, by MCO, in Vero, somewhere on the way? Also for beer, wine and alcohol.

Fresh Market ended up being our favorite - it's sort of mid-way between a Publix and Whole Foods - GREAT selection of prepared foods and baked goods, which we liked on vacation. They have a great wine and beer selection. The bakery is to seriously to die for. They share a parking lot with ABC liquors and are right across the street from a Publix - so really, with one trip you could get anything you'd possibly want/need. I'd highly recommend driving into Vero and stocking up there.

The Publix is about 10 minutes away from the resort. There is a liquor store right next door. We went several times. Huge store.

Hey Cynthia!
We shopped at Publix and then happened upon a great little market by the name of Hale Groves River Market (just off the Miracle Mile). We just loved that place and went more than once!

A1A is on the coastline and you have more beach towns and traffic lights to go through.

Thanks starbox. We have The Fresh Market here in Naples and I shop there often so I am very familiar with it. Their bakery, produce, fresh meats and fresh fish are outstanding. I also love their deli. We jhad their fresh-made meat lasagna yesterday and it was excellent. I'll be sure to hit it for their muffins. Isn't their bakery just the best?
