Just stopped off to pick up a bag of ice, took forever. Carhop apologized like it was her fault. Standard Sonic food, did not eat her however. Just slow.

The food is affordable but not hot or even warm many times. It is a hit and miss on customer service.

Food as good as fast food could be, but they cannot handle big groups, great for small orders, otherwise you will have to go back for missing items

During our 3 night stay in Taos, we went 3 evening to the Sonic as we do not have them in our western NY area. We enjoyed their hot fudge sundaes.....although they do have a great variety of options on their menu. Their waiters/waiters were quick to answer and to deliver your order with a smile.

I go here sometimes with my sweetie. It is quick and easily and cheap-ish (most expensive of the fast food chains, I think) when we are out and about running errands. 9 times out of 10, orders are perfect when delivered, and when they get something wrong, they fix it real quick.

What to say...standard Sonic fare...hot fast food on a VERY cold night when I was too tired to sample any of Taos' incredibly unique eateries. If you are a Sonic fan, the place to go!

We came here only because everything else was closed. Boyfriend had footlong chicago style hot dog and loved it. Also tatertots. I had some grilled burger thing with bacon and onion ring on it. Cold and bread not really grilled. Onion rings were good and hot. Just gave a 4 instead of 3 since boyfriend liked so much.
