I used to enjoy going to Sonic. The Chicago Dogs were slimy like they mixed relish juice and mustard together. After eating on the patio, went through the drive through. Was nauseated by the dude preparing the food in the back. No hat, long beard, no gloves and a nasty T-shirt with the sleeves cut off. Can you say health... More

The only reason to visit Sonic is half price shakes after 8. But lets face it, most people don't go for a shake by itself. So, get a hot dog. They are fresh, delicious, and the chili topping them is pretty darn tasty too. If you can, avoid the vegetables. They do not always rinse off the onions and lettuce... More

Food is decent when or if you actually get it. Worst managed fast food restaurant anywhere. I have never gotten the right order from the drive-thru. I have been double-charged for my order on my card. Last time I was there, the car hop took my card inside, saying their card readers on the drive-in spots were broken. Took him... More

Last 2 times I went to Sonic, I did the drive through (a drive-in only makes little sense in Minnesota in the winter). Got home and sandwiches were wrong. First time, had single instead of double burgers. 2nd time burger tasted off (obviously very dirty grill -- ick) and I ordered mayo, ketchup, lettuce, tomato. What did I get? Onion,... More

My babe and I were fortunate enough to meet up this past Valentine's Day because we originally thought our schedules would be conflicted. Being that we had celebrated our first V-Day the night before (in an amazing way), we decided something a little more low key and "easy" should be in order. Easy is not how we ended up at... More
