Honestly we have tried giving them 3 chances. Food is always cold or old. Staff is slow and rude. Normally sonic in general is pretty well taken care of but we always receive such rude service. We won't be giving them a 4th chance.

Love that Sonic for burgers or corn dogs or just a plain hot dog but their shakes are awesome and they do have a happy hour.

If you like your Chicago dogs served cold...go here. Otherwise, forget it. Last visit: ordered chicago dog and tater tots. both arrived cold. reordered and, again, both arrived cold. complained to sonic corp and received a call from highland sonic manager. she stated they get a lot of complaints about the chicago dogs and then made up a lame excuse...

I'm not a huge fan of Sonic in the first place, but the kids like it. This Sonic was very slow, and they didn't get our order correct. However, once we received what we were supposed to get, it was of decent quality.

Very willing to fix your order to your taste and desire. Food is cooked fresh, and very thrifty pricing. Very fast service also.
