Quick to answer the call button, the staff at Sonic was helpful and thorough. The order was delivered with reasonable speed. The delivery people are very polite even if you did not leave a tip because of a credit purchase. Great location since you can exit from both ends of the restaurant. Well lit at night.

Standard American eating...hamburgers, chicken, tator tots with a wide range of shakes and other tasty drinks. Usually get what I want, friendly young wait staff, quick service and decent pricing. In the small town of Gatesville, hours could be extended since the restaurant choices are limited.

We stopped in for a burger and iced tea. Very good food and service. The wait wasn't long at all and our waitress was excellent.

The meat is very dry and sometimes over cooked. Even their fries, tater tots, and onion rings are over cooked or old. The prices of their food is a little too high.

Their smothered foot-longs are hard to beat. Seems like they have gotten really skinny. You need to really load them up with everything possible. Lime slush is great (80% shaved ice) with fresh lime.

This is a GREAT place to go for hot, fresh food. The carhops are always smiling and friendly and care about the customers needs. The building and lot are always clean and decorated for the holidays. A great place to stop at any time! My kids and I go regularly.

The burgers are ample. The chicken tenders are large. The onion rings have an interesting sweet breading to them. The service is fast and friendly.

I love going to sonic in Gatesville, the people really seem to care about the food and the drinks. I always get a smile and a thank you when I go. Thank you sonic for helping me remember my youth when we would always go to the local burger joint.
