Service was VERY SLOW! We ordered 4 burgers 2 drinks and it took 20 minutes. Bathrooms were very dirty! Typical fast food place I guess.

The menu is good and the food when you get it is OK. It takes about 15-20 minutes to get your order when using the drive thru. Not a fast food ioeration.

This maybe an older Sonic or maybe just made it fit on the property. First one I have been to in recent times that did not have an area inside to sit down. There were a few outside tables. They were very busy and to me seemed under staffed when we were there. We waited quite a time for them... More

Burgers were good but not as hot as we like. I like the Chicago dogs and they were as good as always. We thought service was slow due to busy dinner time. Second time was a late lunch, did not look busy but still slow.

I've tried three times lately to eat here, and have driven away with nothing each time. Waiting 15+ minutes for someone to take your order is unacceptable at a Sonic.

Third time is not a charm. we thought we would take granddaughters to get drinks. Yeah. We had same luck. They are not that... More

I came by here one night to get a cup of their chipped ice that's all. It took them fifteen minutes to bring me a cup of ice! The guy didn't have any straws on him so he went back inside to get it that took another fifteen minutes! So I waited a half hour for a cup of ice... More

Most Sonic's are about the same. You are paying for convenience, not great food. We must admit their are pretty good for a fast food restaurant. Our biggest pet peeve about this paticular location was no hair nets. Some of the females had their hair in ponytails, some didn't. Not good. At least they had gloves on. Like any fast... More
