“Drive thru ordering can be frustrating.”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

We enjoy the PEACH SWEET Tea. However you can ask for it as loudly and clearly as possible and they can't seem to get it right. Sometimes the syrup is too sweet and it makes us queasy later on. Their burgers and dogs are good. I've never tried to desserts as I prefer real ice cream and not that whipped stuff.

“This is a good place to chill out...”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

After a hectic day of shopping at the nearby Tanger Outlets, this Sonic is a good one to stop off at and chill out.

As Sonic is well known for their burgers, fries, ice cream concoctions, milkshakes, and assorted smoothies & drinks --- THIS Sonic (as most others) stands tall as being able to deliver at a high level.

This location is still pretty new - and these guys do a really good job. I'd highly recommend.

“Tots and Shakes!”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

That's about all I like here. Slushes are pretty good. Although sometimes the slushes are too runny. I like mine on the frozen side. I do like the half price drinks from I think 2p to 4p.

“Back to the '50s style American burger joint with carhops”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Drive up, park, press the red button to order, and relax as a carhop comes out with your order. Menu items include burgers with lettuce, tomato, and mayo, tater tots, foot-long chili dogs, and seasonal shakes. Reloadable SONIC CARDS are convenient.

1950's style American fast food. Friendly employees.
