Thought I would give this burger joint a try. The service and selection was what you would expect from a burger place. The food was average, but I am not likely to come back anytime soon. The prices were ok for what you are getting.

We always look forward to having a treat at a Sonic when visiting the states, so were disappointed to find there aren't many in the Pal Springs area. We drove a fair ways to find this one. I loved the Lemonberry real fruit slush in...More

As I was staying in La Quinta, we drove to this Sonic at least once a week so I can treat my 4-year old niece with her favorite Sonic cheese sandwich. She was really happy as she just moved from Texas in this area and...More

Sonics unique drive up concept allows us to stay in the car to order and eat. My kids love the happy hour menu for their specialty slushies. I like the reasonable prices. My only "beef" is that sometimes it takes a long time to get...More

Yeah we checked out the local Sonic Drive In for some ice cream. Car fumes, static filled music, music from cars and screeching babies. And the worst Sundae I ever ate half of. It's a no no no no.

Sonic needs to expand because their choices of food options is exceptional. Don't come here expecting to be in and out in 5 minutes or less because all of the food is made to order. They serve delicious breakfast choices all day long. Their hotdogs...More

I recommend the ice slushy drinks... Too bad they stopped making them sour, but you can still ask them to add Nerds . The Chili cheese fries are très good .

If you travel with kids (& friends) you know eating out can get pretty expensive. Sonic offers a $5 Boom box that can feed hungry teens. It includes a hot dog (we got the Chicago dog), junior cheeseburger, Tator tots (or fries) and a drink....More

This is the first time I've ever been to a "drive-in" restaurant. It's sort of like something out of the 1950's. You order at an intercom and they bring your order. They also have seating outside where you can also order through the intercom. The...More
