the sonic food here is basically same as other sonic restaurants... but here at the middle belt location they have a server named Lauren in the morning hours and she is kind and friendly and smiles at all the customers. she brightens our mornings.

I have been to the Sonic located just off I-29 (near Menards) on three occasions... and EACH and EVERY time, the service and attitude was deplorable! I've talked to the regional manager or franchise manager... and he's equally as uncaring. They just don't "get it" when it comes to customer service. I WILL NEVER, EVER RETURN TO THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN!

I won't be making my regular stop at this sonic store anymore. There was a period of time that I could run by before work and get great fast service but the employee that I could count on is no longer there. I have had to drive away without receiving my order because of the long wait. I wonder if... More

A recent trip to Sonic for an ice cream treat was a major let down. The treats came out covered in sticky "goo" on the outside of each cup. No napkins were provided. I had to park and walk up to the window to get some. The ice cream was sub par as well. Look for other options if you're... More

Engineered product that is FEED, not food. Find a real meal. This is a marketed concept that is the same, the bland overportioned same, from coast to coast. Seek out something real!
