After a five-month absence, the grill is going again at popular island eatery Sonny’s Place, 1206 19th St.

Readers are happily reporting the return of Sonny's Place, known for homemade chicken soup, triple-meat cheeseburgers, muffalettas and chicken-fried steak sandwiches (aka Artery Cloggers).

One reader emailed: “Just had my favorite — chili cheeseburger with small fries and a root beer. Thought this might be good news for Sonny's fans to make it into your column.”

It is good news.

Sonny’s Place was closed to allow owner Lawrence Puccetti Jr. (known to most as Junior) to recover from knee surgery.

Sonny’s Place traces its roots to 1937 and has served as a restaurant since 1944. The eatery isn’t just famous for food, but also for not tolerating bad language and bad behavior.

Visitors and locals alike are big fans of the eatery.

What did you miss the most while Sonny’s was closed?
