I loved Sonic from my travels down to the Southern US, and was so excited when one opened in my area. Either my memories of Sonics down South are tainted by rose-colored glasses, or else the Minnesota franchise just doesn't to the Sonic formula justice. I suspect the latter. I've visited a few times, perhaps 5 or 6. Each time... More

We had never been to a Sonic so when we saw it and it was lunch time, we popped in there. We pulled into one of the spots to order. I had a very hard time seeing the menu from the passenger seat of a car. The menu screen is high and I could see the bottom 1/4th of it.... More

I have enjoyed stopping at this Sonic a number of times since it opened. But my last visit was a bust. Our order took a long time to come out, and when it did it was bad. The burgers were cold and soggy, the mozzarella sticks were cold, and the shake was melted. As it turns out, the shake was... More

I'm going to be kind because our server was running like a madman trying to take care of everybody. Alone. Poor kid. Our order wasn't correct. We didn't complain. We ate it and nobody died. Dipping sauce missing? Oh well. No straw? Tough luck. Chicken tenders were just the batter (chicken free) or just over cooked so much you couldn't... More

They can customize your order to include anything you'd like on it, and their burgers are amazing. Try their onion rings with cheese melted on top! I really enjoy this place, sorry to hear other people had bad experiences but we come here often. You can't go wrong with one of their delicious burgers.

The service was slow.... the "waitress" was must have been having the worst day of her life.... the employees obviously hate working there.... and it shows.... the food was not hot when served - and cold deep fried stuff just is not my favorite. Go a block or so south on central for Flame burgers...I hate to say it ...... More

Worst service ever. Literally the exact opposite of fast food. Waited for 5 minutes at the speaker and 15 minutes after ordering and still didn't receive food. Save your time and money and make a sandwich.

Waited a long time at the drive through. I finally asked for help. Long wait for a shake after order placed.

Stopped here during happy hour for corn dogs and creamy fruit slushes. First we were told that the corn dogs were frozen (?!?!?!). Isn't that what the fryer is for, to make them not frozen? We ordered our slushes and they told us the ice cream machine was broken. Decided just to leave without anything. Will think twice before visiting... More
