Definitely not the BEST Sonic, but worth going on multiple occasions. Larger parking area with a Walmart parking lot next door.

I stopped by after a late event at the Kalahari Conference Center. I usually love Sonic, and was thrilled to see that shakes were 1/2 price between 8 pm and 12 pm. The Drive-Thru was backed up, and service was slower than molasses...I could see inside the window, and no one appeared to be moving very quickly, based on the... More

Super slow, everything tasted weird. Hotdogs were off, chicken sandwich was dry, totts were soft and barely warm, even the mints were off. They broke as soon as you popped them in your mouth to help with the indigestion. Will never go back..or for that matter go to a Sonic.

Stopped for lunch on 1-2-2017. Drive-in service was top-notch, food accuracy & quality was on point! Prices are good, especially when feeding a family. Best experience I've had at this location. Would try it again. Note when leaving, you might want to exit through Wal-Mart's parking lot, as it has a traffic light, it is safer.

30 mins in the drive thru for milkshakes and chili dogs and they still managed to get it wrong. Sneaking suspicion half the staff is stoned most of the time. Yeah, milkshakes good but 30 mins? Fyi only one car in front of us.

One of the longest drive thru times ever, but there were only 2 cars in front of me. I think it was 20 minutes. The only reason it's not a 1 is my burger was good.

This place was so slow and food was not that good. Save your money and find another place to eat. Everyone was getting the wrong food and waiting too long. Should have just went to a steak house and ate

Terrible! My sisters was looking for a quick bite to eat before we headed back to Michigan and they chose this Sonic. We pulled up to the drive up service, pressed the button and it took at least 10 minutes to get assistance. So we decided to go through the drive thru instead and that was just as horrible, it...

We're from Canada and we don't have any "Sonics" (unfortunately). We ordered coffee for us and breakfast sandwiches for the kids and it came to around $20.00 US. My 5 year old, who never asks for 2nds of anything ever, actually asked for 2nds so we ended up going back and ordering him another breakfast sandwich. Ashley was our server... More
