Packed with school kids and history-geek tourists by day and wacky partiers by night, Old City can be a bit a of bear to handle regardless of what your watch reads. Mercifully, Sonny’s is there for you at most hours. This remarkably friendly restaurant—no totalitarian ordering rules here, just tell ‘em what you want—does its steaks right, tossing fresh-sliced ribeye on the requisite griddle-crisped Amoroso’s roll with whatever toppings you choose. They do this well and they do this fast, and on weekend nights they do this until 3 in the morning, when we need this life-saving service the most.

Dry over cooked burger, small patty. Overpriced for quality and quantity. Would not recommend.

Sonny's used to get overlooked until GQ ranked it number one. Now it's super busy! I don't mind though, they're still fast. I'm there like every weekend at 2 am with my bf who likes it way more than Geno's/Pat's. Their fries are great too.
