I had the grilled chicken combo. It would have been good without the lettuce. The lettuce was aweful.

Driving to an eating establishment, parking car and ordering food via intercom is a different experience. Parking near the location and staring at the walls was probably not the best idea. Fair selection of items on the menu.

The Sonic in Merced is near my job so I visit regularly and have no complaints. The one is Atwater is super slow and even was so bad one day I felt the need to send a complaint to their corporate office. They did do well in trying to make it up to us though. Overall, I love their diet... More
