Good food and service too. The drive thru went fast and the service was nice and friendly. They offer coupons too, so keep an eye out for them

Maybe I've never noticed before but, Sonic is offering some really decent coupons and deals this year. Their food is good. The hot dogs have a nice variety of toppings, burgers are tasty, grilled cheese is good. All good things to grab on the way home from work. I'd prefer a nice dinner salad on the menu but, I don't...

First time visit. Instructions on how to order were easy. Service was prompt and courteous. I was shocked at how quickly food was delivered via roller skating server. Food was hot upon delivery. Double burger fries were tasty. Foot long hot dog should have been left of the curb. It was luke warm, rubbery and not very flavorful. Thew most... More

This is a great place for lunch or a late night snack. I prefer the foot long chili cheese dogs myself. Corn dogs are good as well. They are always good for their half price promos.

I go there every now and then because the burgers are much better than McDonalds or Burger King. The hot dogs are delicious too. Inexpensive, especially the hot dogs.

I like their menu for a change from the usual fast food. The Cherry lime aid is worth the 20 minute drive. The staff is very pleasant and friendly.

Anyone who watches TV in the northeast (particularly TNT, TBS, etc) has seen numerous clever Sonic Drive In commercials...the family was surprised when we passed a Sonic on Rt#9 in Howell; so, a short time later, we stopped to experience "Happy Days". A customer is given three (3) options of how to eat/order: 1. Drive-thru in your car, 2. Pull-up... More
