We routinely visit Sonic, especially after 8pm because my husband loves their half-priced milk shakes. I also enjoy the happy hour 2-4pm when drinks and slushes are half-priced!

We always order something different, and are always happy.... More

Despite this place always being run by kids, they have fast, professional service and have never gotten an order wrong in my experience (I've been there many, many times). Good food, cheap prices, and quick service. How is that not 5-stars?

Went here for lunch. The service is very quick and the food is good. I think the Sonic Burgers are some of the best and you can not go wrong with the tots and a cherry limeade.

Service is very good. Workers are friendly and food was done and served very quickly. The food tastes great and there is a nice variety. Breakfast is available all day. A little pricey if on a tight budget.

The food was okay but overpriced for what you get. I got a cheeseburger, cheese balls, and a drink and it was almost $10.
