I go to sonic for the Diet green tea and the frozen lemonade. It is great with a flavoring. The last two I have gotten had little flavoring. That was a disappointment. Sometimes I go and I wait over five minutes to order and get my drink. That is crazy. They have a wide range of drinks to chose from.... More

Asked twice at Drive up for #1 no cheese and no lettuce, that was repeated back to me twice, guess what got home and had a# 1 with cheese and no lettuce. Guess what same thing happened a week ago when I dined in car, they had to make burger twice. Surely I'm not the only person? I just started... More

This is a favorite of mine for quick snacks and drinks. However over the past few years this chain seems to be slipping. Ordered grillers and the pic on sing is of well a griller for 1.49. What i got was 1/3 of a griller. Ordered lemonade with lemons. Got a cup of sugar with no lemons. Also of note... More

Friendly staff, although they questioned just ordering milkshakes. Close to the highway, so it was a nice quick stop and then back on the road.

The waitress was grumpy from the get go!! Not friendly at all. Snappy while taking the order.. Ordered Chicago style hot dogs and asked for a plain hotdog bun instead of the poppy sead bun.. 40 cents up charge for a plain bun per hotdog. Tater tots were ice cold. Not returning to this place again.

Shakes were delicious could not believe the size of a large I would have purchased a small or medium and that would have been enough for me. Went through the drive thru quick service a little pricey maybe due to size of shake but they were worth once you tasted how good they were.

We went there because my daughter wanted to try it out. Me and my wife got the Philly cheese steak sandwiches. There was more cheese then meat and the meat was so over cooked it was inedible. Daughter got the boneless wings. She said those were OK. For a party of four to cost $40 and to eat in your... More

Those crazy commercials on tv make me laugh! A couple years ago the kids wanted to try slushies with Jolly Ranchers added, so we stopped in. For your first visit, i recommend doing curbside, as the menu is quite extensive! Each drink is made to order, so it can take a few minutes if they are busy. Now, whenever we... More

Needed something cool to drink after several hours of shopping at the outlet mall. Too many choices;). Blue raspberry hit the spot for me!
