We had a NY hot dog, cburger, onion rings and a coke for 11.49. Based on that price I'd say it was a good deal. Hot dg was fine, but they did not bring the ketchup as requested, but fixed it. Food was fine, but...More

Extremely slow for an incorrect order. We ordered two drinks and one snickers waffle cone. The waffle cone had no snickers, it was just caramel and ice cream, and we waited a solid 25 minutes for it. If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else!...More

Stopped in earlier today and ordered two drinks. Over 15 minutes later, I left.....without the drinks. I didn't think it took THAT long to fix a drink.

It took 30 minutes to get 3 shakes, 1 malt and a cheeseburger. Ironically the cheeseburger had no cheese and the malt didn't get mixed so all the malt powder was in the bottom. Terrible!

I had never eaten at a Sonic before and thought I'd give it a try after seeing all their ads while in town about the Pretzel Dog. Oh, I wish I had just driven on by. The only part of my order that was palatable...More

We were camping at the KOA north of town, so we hit the drive through at Sonic one evening and took it back to the campround. It was the first time I had eaten food from Sonic; we don't have any where we live. We...More
