Picked up some sweet tea (It wasn't very sweet) some tater tots and cheese sticks to go with out grilling out. Service is good, prices reasonable, and the sides were fine. Their burgers and fries are Goooood, and the milkshakes there are REAL good!

I used the drive-through for breakfast one morning. Ordered a breakfast burrito and coffee. The burrito was ok, not the best. The coffee was very bitter even with creamer and sugar. The drive-through lady was awesome though. Couldn't ask for better service.

We went to Sonic since it was raining and cold and in this weather is hard for me to get my wheelchair out and move around myself - so this was meant to be! We ordered burgers and they were wonderful - exactly as ordered. The onion rings were crunchy and yummy and the French fries were great too As... More

If you want great fast food or dairy treats from the comfort of your car, try this Sonic location! Friendly car-hops and food made to order.

Really tasty food, must go for the Coney Island hot dogs. They used to state around but don't anymore, I miss that.

Ate there with the family, including three grandsons under the age of 6. Corndogs were enjoyed by the grandsons. The ice cream ok but not spectacular. Too many chocolate chips in the blast and shakes for my tastes. This is a fun diversion but nothing spectacular. Kids enjoyed wait staff on skates. Reasonable price for what you get.

Awesome milkshakes at half price in the evening. Best tea in town! Good place to eat at a very good price

Very busy, but the food was worth the wait! My wife got the new double bacon cheddar croissant, she said she would give a 6, with a scale of 1-10, the croissant just wasn't her. My daughter loves her double cheese burger, and I got the 1/4 pound coney!

Thank Jeff H
