I thought it would be easy to get the special corn dog for fifty cents. I sat for ten minutes in the indoor seating area. There was a mother and child. Otherwise I was alone. A staff person came by twice and didn't say anything. I then got up and pressed a 'service' button. Has that changed? I then ordered... More

We have eaten at this Sonic for almost eight years, always enjoying the food and experience. Today, our experience was quite the opposite due to the inability of the staff to correctly take, prepare, and deliver our order. We used the drive-up ordering microphone (first mistake), which led to having to repeat a very simple order for two hamburgers several... More

More variety than most fast food joints. Staff usually friendly and efficient. Food is decent, and they will bring your food out to your car like an old time drive in café.

Sonic, in Mebane, NC, has the BEST hot dogs in town! You can order them plain, or "All the Way." They're messy, so ask for plenty of napkins. Jane H.

I love Sonic. I love their food, I love the variety of food that they offer, I love the drive in concept and the fact that they have seating inside. I WISH that the Sonic in Mebane was able to serve me food quickly and I would be willing to eat here more often. I have yet to go through... More

I just sat in line for 15 minutes paid over $20 for FAST FOOD only to get home and my order was wrong! Even after the lady asked what I ordered to make sure she was giving me the right bag!! Aggravated to say the least...who the heck wants to drive back after getting home! No plans to go back... More

From the 'ordering via a push button system on the wall' to NO customer service whatsoever -- I don't see how they stay in business.... and Sonic was always a very good place to get pretty good fast food --- not any longer for me ....

My son ordered ice cream and it came with a black hair on top! Instead of apologizing, the young woman at the window was defensive and rude. I returned the untouched ice cream, demanded my money back and left. They struggled to figure out how to return my money and were extremely rude.

Traveling through and needed a quick fix on my sweet tooth and thanks to GPS & Sonic I found my fix. Great shakes and they're half price from 2 til 4 pm. Fast and friendly service and sock hop atmosphere. I give em 3 out of 5 forks. Check em out!
