Great burgers for the price. The milk shakes are especially good. It is like the 50"s drive ins, you order in your car and the pretty girl brings it to you.

I phone in an order for 10-12 breakfast burritos about once every 6 weeks as soon as I leave my house. They have them ready as soon as I pull up. Great service always friendly and the burritos are huge.

Sonic does a great job with their drinks, especially love their limeades. Look for their specials and also hit their snack menu, by far the best values

Have great values with special prices during day hours & weekly special 2 for 1. The cherry limeades are my favorite. From 2 to 4 PM a 44 Oz only $1.20. Tuesday night 2 for 1 hamburger specials. Also have a dollar menu.

I love the sonic ice. I often buy bags of ice just have around. It reminds me of the sixties with carhops and menu is a good value

Their food is overpriced, since most of it tastes bad, but their tater tots are very good. I enjoy an unsweet peach tea. It is the best on a hot summer day! Food not too good, but tea is well worth the stop.

I don't like the drive-in concept but the cherry limeade is very good and i do like their hamburgers. We like the tater tots also. They make a different addition to a meal. My wife gets the chili dog occasionally and loves them.

Thank Caddylak
