“Drive In Fast Food - Fun & Good!”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

There are too many drive-in fast food restaurants around so it is a treat to have a Sonic close by. It's a fast food burger/hot dog place where you order from your car and servers come out on roller blades with your food/drinks. It's fun and different and the food is pretty good too. There is also a drive through. Kids and adults love to order from the varied menu. The first time you go, the menu may seem overwhelming as there are so many choices. You take your time reviewing it and push the red button when you are ready. Service is fast! Kids meals include a toy. From 2-5 in the afternoon, all drinks are half off. Slushies are popular! Onion rings are sweet! Burgers and sandwich melts are satisfying. There are daily specials as well so you can get a pretty good deal and feed 2 people for under $10 sometimes. It's not the healthiest fast food place around, but once in a while Sonic is a real treat!
