For this Restaurant to be famously known for their Shakes, Blasts, Sundaes, etc.. for "Happy Hour" they must want to continue to make the "Customer Unhappy". I guess they don't want to sell any ice cream to make money. Oh, well their loss. I am so tired of trying to go buy some ice cream from this place and the... More

When we finally got some one to take our order it took an exceptionally long time to get our food. Kinda wish they had ignored us....Found "stuff" in the cheese in the grilled cheese sandwich. Black stuff in the egg in the toaster When we complained we were told the grill just wasn't clean. Just a nasty experience. Check out... More

Two kids that love corn dogs? Better go to Sonic. Grandma says they are good too. And the shakes are thick and creamy, some of the best at any fast food.

My wife and I used to frequent this Sonic location. The last two days we were unable to get waited on and left without ordering. Not sure if they are having very bad staffing issues or what. We sat in line (4th car back) for 15 minutes and nary an order was taken. Friday was even worse. We will not... More

Will not go back to this location. We have been 2 times service was horrible. The wait time was unheard of both times. The last time we waited 45 mins for 2 milkshakes. Talk to the General Manger about the problem and she act like she didn't care. If other people are treated like this they will start to losing... More

I don't like the food at all. Milkshakes and slush drinks is all I get. I'm going to give the pretzel dog a chance. But not to excited.

A different approach from McDonald's or Wendy's. Pull up in the parking space, place your order and a roller-skating server will bring it to your car. Kids love going - but are disappointed when the servers are walking instead of skating. There's a drive-through if you prefer. I didn't realize how much the most recent kid loved it until he...
