Every time my wife and I go to this sonic location the people working don't seem to want to be there nor do they appear to care about their job. On top of the poor customer service at this sonic location our order has almost always been wrong and we have had to go back to have them fix it.

We stopped here for something quick after skipping a meal. I had a peanut butter chocolate shake, it was incredible. I will certainly go again.

Always happy to find a Sonic. Learned to love them when we lived in Oklahoma (that is where they started). Good food, fast service, love the 'deals' I get on my iPhone by signing up for text messages. Route 44 Cherry Limeade is the best!

if you have never visited a sonic before, kind of reminds you of the old fashioned drive in,kid comes around in roller skates and brings your food to you. You pull into a parking spot with a small window with a menu on it,and whats nice is,they dont say "can i help you " as soon as you roll up,... More

This is obviously a chain, so the true spirit of the fifties is a bit strained, but nonetheless the food and service harken back to a simpler time. Food is good.

Yes, it really works. Half priced shakes after 8:00. The jr cheeseburger deluxe for 1.59 was a very good sized and excellent tasting burger, best I know of for that price. The drive through board is a bit confusing: the shake flavors were way off to the side and hard to find the smaller value burgers. But the guy I... More

Can you say delicious! Hot food in a timely fashion with great service after a long day of work and the beginning to a longer weekend. Sometime you just have a bad day and everything seems to be going wrong. Well it was one of those days. Until we stopped at Sonic. Not only did it bring back childhood memories... More
