Stopped for a slushie and Reese's blast late Friday night. Thought I paid with a $20 but was mistaken. Management was incredible and offered to reimburse me even though it was my mistake. Thanks for being so kind. A plus...our treats hit the spot!

Nice fast food place where you can eat in your car or at a few tables they have out front. Your food is delivered to you by a waiter on roller skates 50's style. You place your order into a microphone either at your car or at a large menu near the outside tables. There is no indoor seating. The... More

We have been going here about once a month or so. Usually end up ordering some type of dessert while on our way home from Lancaster or York. Sonic Blasts are delicious, but if you ask for extra candies, they really load it up and you end up getting candy treats in every mouthful. If you didn't know, they always... More

We often stop there for a burger, pulling up to the stall and pushing the intercom button to order, which doesn't take very long as the service is completed on roller skates with a smile and extra condiments! Great burgers and grilled chicken!

We dont have a Sonic where I live so we always have to stop in Lancaster. Food is good and delivery girls are always friendly. $3.50 for a hotdog isnt bad....

I just LOVE SONIC!! Everything we had was excellent. The food's quality was better than I expected. The price was reasonable, the staff very friendly and helpful. We ate outside on a nice day in November. Although this store was very busy, our food was quickly brought out and tasted great. Can't get enough of this place!

pretty standard fast food - the burgers are tasty, but at over 700 calories for a regular burger, I start regretting it from the first - well, maybe the second or third - bite. Fries were not fresh.

We ordered our food and in no time she arrived with our food and drinks and it was very good. The hamburgers and fries were fresh. Only thing was the milshake was so thick, I couldn't use the straw -- needed a spoon.
