The new funnel ice cream items are good we got the pecan pie with chocolate and the Reese's with peanut butter. Both good choices

This location served all our food hot and fresh but everything was really greasy. The frozen lemonades are the bomb! This location actually served them frozen unlike other locations that have been melted. I do have an healthy obsession with cheese tater tots though.

Their shakes are really good and half price after 8:00. Their food is typical of what you would expect at a drive-in.

Classic Sonic with fast food, great service, and tasty shakes! Located along a. Main thoroughfare it is the handiest place to stop for all Sonic sandwiches and drinks

i used to love this Sonic in Bearden. Everything is pretty good but I don't understand why they can't make a good burger. Thrown together, stale bun, green tomatoes. HOW hard is it to make a burger?? Should have went to Buddy's BBQ next door! Not going to ever order a burger at this location again!

My husband and I were in the area yesterday and went to this Sonic location for a quick breakfast. The moment we pulled up into a car slot, a very friendly, happy woman greeted us instantly. Already, we were impressed. We ordered our food and it came out to us in exactly 1 minute and 30 seconds! Our carhop, I... More
