I don't recommend this place for the food. It is sub par. The hot dogs are passable but tiny. The shakes, however, are very good. Those are worth the trip

I went twice to Sonic and both times they have missed giving me bacon on my hamburgers. Their french fries are limp and disgusting and the onion rings are really tough.

I really miss the roller skating days. We would just by something cheap off the menu and sit there and check out the cute chicks and wait to see if one of them would fall on their rear. Other than that, I've never had much use for Sonic.

If you want a great greasy burger tater tots and an awesome shake, get the to a sonic. You aren't looking for Michelin stars, but a nice finish to the day

Decided to go to Sonic to get some ice cream and food. Ordered, everything seemed great pulled up to the window the lady takes our order and then proceeds to tell me "oh we don't have the caramel candies to put in the shake". So she asks if I wanted some other flavor or if I wanted to add toppings,... More

Shortly before 10:00 pm on 4/11/16 I placed an order at the drive through window. The young lady that took my order was so pleasant and so full of life and good sprit. She had a smile that I'm sure could light the sky and I might add, it was genuine. Seldom seen these days it seems. The food was... More

They have a great happy hour menu for drinks 1/2 off 2-4 pm. The best hot dogs and onion rings in town. Can always count on good eats at Sonic and love when they servers wear roller skates.

We live near the north-side Sonic, but much prefer the south-side one (on S. Lincoln). It is an "original" and has been there for years & years. The service at the south-side Sonic seems to be better - friendlier and more courteous. I like the BLT's at Sonic - I always ask them to please not butter the toasted bread... More

We stopped at this Sonic Drive-In to grab some cold drinks and snacks one weekday evening. The restaurant is conveniently located and features several picnic tables outside for those who wish to dine outside of their vehicle. Service was friendly, and the food was simply average Sonic-style eating. We enjoyed a corn dog, onion rings and popcorn chicken. All were... More

They make them the old fashioned way with real ice cream and have a lot of new flavors on special these nights.
