Sonic is usually consistent but this time, it was difficult to be pleased. Cashier kept repeating my order wrong, forgot to give me honey mustard, had to ask 3 times,she seemed flustered and poorly trained,I was sorry to see that she deserved better. Chili on dig needs flavor badly!

I love the fact that they serve hot dogs, and that they have so MANY options for something to drink. The only problem is that their chicken and burgers are not that great, no real flavor. They are fine if you are looking to fill the stomach, but I would just avoid those and get a foot long hot dog... More

We had their Grilled Chicken Wrap with Ranch Dressing. It was really good! The food here is always good. If you are looking for good food, low price and you don't have to leave your car or truck, then this is the place for you. Try it!

Super hamburgers and hot dogs. Also very good milkshakes. Not too crazy about the fries or onion rings.

My 82 year old mom and I ate lunch here 7/2/15. She wanted to try the Pretzel Dog with grilled onions - combo, that has been advertised. We both had this. Hot dog roll split entirely with the first bite, and was a complete mess to eat thereafter. Our "grilled" onions were instead chopped white onions that had barely been... More

Want ice cream and stopped in for a blast. Ordered a large snickers blast, got melted vanilla ice cream with cream on top and sprinkled with snicker dust. Called manager and she made another. Got same thing basically just more dust. Will not order this ever.

I really like Sonic--excellent hamburgers, ice cream treats, fun. So I am always happy to go when someone suggests we do. In visits to family in nearby Colonial Heights, my young brothers-in-law often ask to go to this one for desert or an afternoon snack. I've taken them here often over the past few months. The food is fine, but... More

Sonic is Sonic nationwide. I usually go there for a regular ice cream cone or a drink. The few times I have been there, they have been friendly and I get quick service. Although sometimes it seems like some of the employees SKIP ice cream cones making class...the swirl is just fat & stubby or lopsided.

It has been a long time since we last ate at Sonic. The reason is they would not substitute a bread for another bread without charging extra. Really! Headquarters for Sonic told us that they should not have charged anything for the change. Restaurants substitute all the time without charge. Well, we did not return until now, one and a... More
