    I missed the best fried shrimp on the island. But even more, I missed bringing first-timers to Sonny's so they could get "mustarded."

    I missed the cheeseburger but I got my fix today (the spaghetti, coney islands, friday gumbo, chili, muffaletta and oysters, among other things, are also good), and they had a pretty decent crowd. It was sad not seeing Larry in his usual perch by the huge, ancient cash register (he'll sorely be missed) but Sonny's continues on, after 70 years in business, a Galveston icon.

    The Spaghetti, Soup, Chile, a cold beer and the ambiance. Larry will always be missed.

    Went to Sonny's with friends this evening and enjoyed the wonderful chile, some deep fried French Fries and a cold beer. Richard is back in the kitchen and the food is coming out as great as ever. by the time we left the place was just about full. Richard mentioned to me earlier that they had a full house Thursday...folks are just plane hungry for the great food and the ambiance Sonny's has always had. So glad they are back. Oh, Junior and the Mrs showed up looking great as ever.
