I was at an event and won a Slush party for my classroom. They delivered to my classroom and my students loved it! It was a great treat for them :) I have eaten there several times, and I was impressed by their customer service. My kids had a great time at the play ground too!

Gainesville Sonic at 39th Ave is such a fun, great place to go. The staff is all so friendly and they have great service. This Sonic also has a huge commitment to volunteering and donating in local schools. They really go above and beyond!
