I've been dining here sine the 1980's. It's not a bad drive in but the years are piling up and a major overhaul is needed. Ok for the onion rings and I can still remember the great banana shakes.

I eat here often and rarely have a bad experience. Quick service, lots to choose from. Dinner and desert in one stop. Much better than it was 5 years ago.

It's a Sonic, so there isn't (hopefully) going to be much variety. Nothing negative to say, which is a complement in a chain. The food was good as always, it arrived fairly quickly for a typical Sonic (could just be the timing), and the waitress who delivered it was friendly.

We were on our way to Sweetwater Caves, so we stopped by Sonic Drive-Inn. Service was rather crappy. The girl really had a bad day, but the one who came out (really not sure if it was the same one or not) was different. She was smiling and served our food at the car very nicely. The burgers were really... More

It's 2015, and this place makes you pay full price for a refill on a COKE!!! And then. I'm told there are no public restrooms. Is that even legal in a restaurant? Everything else was just a typical Sonic, but not offering free refills really ticks me off. Like every other restaurant that charges for refills, I won't be back.

Friendly waitress, very good food although it took quite a time to prepare since we were only one of two people that were there. Nevertheless good service and would recommend a stop here.

Food was great and service was fast and friendly. Prices were real cheap. Three of us ate good meal for less than $10.

I never liked Sonic before I started getting horrible GERD attacks. Then I stopped by to get a shake and wow....it took care of my problem plus it was sooooooo good...and the service was great as well as fast. I tell all my friends about Sonic. The only reason I give it 4 points instead of 5 is because they... More

Horrible. Orders are ALWAYS AND CONSISTENTLY MESSED UP. Do not waste your time or money by going here. Mediocre food and service will make you sorry if you do.
