Usually this Sonic is frustrating at best. Missing items, long wait times, we even left once. We hit this Sonic late on a Friday around 2am leaving town on vacation. Best burger ever. If I ever go back it will only be late at night when the late night guy is cooking!

Great place to get a cold drink/slushi. Always check to see if they are having any specials. Check it out.

Do not use waitress service. I gave the waitress my debit card, had a bad feelings about that, two days later I had fraudulent purchases, all in WASHINGTON DCUS: ExxonMobil 9765 WASHINGTON DCUS $133.00, Shell/Oil 91002598 WASHINGTON DCUS $49.39, and BP#9315698PARKROAD $40.00: that left a bad taste in my mouth.

Ordered fries and a drink. This took over 20 minutes, despite there not even being many customers there. After about 15 minutes I walked into the area where the workers are and asked to cancel my order. They refused. While in there, I noticed it was very filthy. They kept me at the room area refusing to cancel the order... More

I came to this sonic for happy hour, and was not prepared for my experience. The wait was extremely long, leading me to think that this is the slowest Sonic in the area. I would definitely consider other sonics or establishments all together before coming here.

We have tried to give this Sonic the benefit of the doubt, simply because it is the closest one to our house. Once we waited over a half hour for our food, I think that was the longest we've waited - but we've had to wait so many times, it's hard to remember. This past visit took the cake, though.... More

We ordered one chocolate shake and one chocolate oreo shake. We really didn't care that the shakes were 1/2 price but it was a bonus! After waiting for the car in front of us which seemed to be having ordering problems, we were finally served. We tasted our shakes riding home. I commented that my shake was a weak chocolate...

Sonic offers great choices for travelers' meals. Love the Bacon Cheeseburger Toaster sandwich. Everyday from 2PM to 4PM its Happy Hour. Half-price sodas, limeades, and slushes.

No room to park so I tried the drive through...big mistake. With only 3 cars in front of me it took over 30 minutes to get a hot dog, fries and coke. I had to keep repeating my order because the clerk couldnt hear me (or wasnt paying attention). Im not sure what took so long to get drive through... More

Ordered "ocean water" and got tap water. Food was mediocre and got 2 napkins for a meal for 2 people plus the CC reader at the kiosk didn't work. It was really late and we didn't want to endure the wait anywhere else but in hindsight, we should have. Avoid this place!
