“Good, but slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

This is still one of our favorite places to go, as we love the ice cream drinks and hot dogs, burgers, chicken nuggets and the limeade, not to mention the french fries and onion rings. We like the "happy hour" in the middle of the afternoon, because you can go right after picking up kids from school and get iced tea in several flavors, slushes, sodas and limeade in several flavors, for half price from around 3:00 to 4:00, I believe. The breakfast choices are really good and there are chicken entrees, too. The only things that are bothersome are credit card mechanisms that are often not functioning, so that they have to take your card inside to run it, and the slow delivery time after you order. A drive-in is supposed to be quick, and this one has never been, and was so slow last time that I think we were there about 20 minutes. If you want a quick Sonic, go to the one in Plano just north of George Bush off Coit. The longest I have EVER waited for a meal there is 3 minutes, and their average wait time is 1 1/2 minutes. They are AWESOME!

“Good In A Hurry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

Sonic is just okay....Great for a fast bite to eat but nothing special...Sometimes (rarely) you get a carhop with a personality and what a breath of fresh air..I was a carhop in the past and yes it can be hard but, it depends alot on you...

“Quick treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

After a long day of shopping, Sonic is located just before the highway entrance providing awesome drinks and treats. The bacon breakfast burrito combo always hits the spot.

“Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2011

I frequently visit this Sonic and love their staff here. They really get to know you and know their regular customers. it's typical fast food but, I think the staff makes the stop worth the while. This is one of the better Sonics I've eaten at and have never had a problem with the food here. It's always ready hot and fast.
