Breaks my heart but the Arkadelphia Sonic is among the WORST places I've ever visited. Slow, unfriendly service. If there are 2 cars ahead of you wanting food and you order just a drink, prepare yourself to wait 10 minutes. They are going in order.

This Sonic is well known for their rude demeanor and exceptionally SLOW service. I know they clear the timer fast but your order will take FOREVER to arrive. I have seen them leave drinks on a counter while they wait for food orders from other people to be cooked and delivered instead of just bringing out your drink. Terrible service... More

Enjoy happy hour for a price you know instead of tourist. Great quality and same price you know. Nice little check point for a couple and family with chirrens! Stop before hitting the road elsewhere on 7, no where else before Hot Springs!

After watching Sonic commercials for years in our area that has no Sonic locations, when we went to visit my parents in Arkadelphia back in 2003, we were very excited to finally try it out, only to find it to be a very poor experience.

I have been to this place a dozen times or more. At least half of the times the service was really slow. Otherwise it is your average sonic. This one is a little dated and smaller than some as well.

It is just an average Sonic. Food is expensive as with all the Sonics. The drinks were great but the store was very hard to locate because it is not with the other stores in the Wal-Mart area. It is down closer to the college so lots of college kids there, jamming music and talking from car to car..

Thank Kezbeth
