I've never been to a bad Sonic. This is a newly remodeled one since 2014 and easy to get to. Remember drive up is always faster than parking and ordering. I love to park on a warm day/night and enjoy the old time drive-in experience.

As expected a quick bite and no time to search due to a trailer, nice friendly service, clean premises, and prompt service. *****

As I said before we don't eat at drive-ins often because we prefer not to eat in our car. However, unlike our last visit our order came just as we ordered it. I think the new screens help you preview your order to eliminate mistakes or misunderstanding. My Wife had the Jr. Deluxe Cheeseburger and I had the Jr. Double... More

We don't usually eat at Sonic because we prefer not to eat in our car. But we made an exception. We ordered two grilled chicken wraps, onion rings, and a Coke. Our order came with fried chicken wraps. Rather than wait, we went ahead an ate the wraps as they came. The car hop did offer to have them remade.... More

I really do not have any complaints and the food is as expected. It's fast food with good service at order taking and delivery of food to the car. The new building and layout of the lot is much improved. You no longer get trapped in line when ordering a couple of drinks behind a family of five waiting on... More

Happy hour corn dog for .99 is not worth it. Overcooked, greasy, old. Happy hour should be used to encourage customers to return by delivering fresh, hot food. In this case, it was used to get rid of bad dogs. The drinks are dependably refreshing.

Happy hour half price drinks 2 to 4. Good service by the car hops and drive through. Cheese sticks are my favorite with a diet cherry limeade.
