A Sonic is a Sonic

Stopped for the Tots and Limeade, which held us over until we got to the Grand Canyon. It is as expected, a drive-in.

We recently had lunch at Sonic in Kayenta. We were looking for a quick and easy option and this happened to be on the way. Lunch was okay. Nothing to brag about. My husband had a hot dog and fries and I had a grilled chicken sandwich with onion rings. We both agreed that the onion rings had an odd... More

Tried Sonic for the first time after visiting monument valley and I certainly hope other Sonics have better standards. Bathrooms were disgusting, dirty and had no soap to wash with. Food was equally as poor. My friend had a cold hamburger... not warm - cold. The cheese was just lying on top of it like an old mans toupee. It... More

We have a Sonic where we are from and this one was just not the same. The food seemed like it had been cooked prior to when we ordered it and just wasn't as tasty as the Sonic back home, or others I have been to.

I agree... weird place, awful food. We usually enjoy eating at Sonic, this one didn't compare. I would definitely skip this joint! I thought Sonic had higher standards for franchises then this.

Okay if you are desperate for an ice cream shake and I mean desperate! They have some strange flavours but I opted for strawberry cream pie. Awful. Would be better if they used fresh cream instead of that stuff out of a can.

By far the worst meal of our trip. We weren't expecting gourmet, but we were expecting edible. It was edible, but barely. Neither of us finished our chicken sandwiches. The tater tots were old and lukewarm. Service was poor. We ordered and ate inside, but it was the oddest setup I've ever seen. Did I mention the tables were dirty... More

I have been to many sonic drive-ins before, and this one is by far the worst. Food was okay but the service and place were terrible. A lot of shady people hanging out the restaurant. Some appeared to be drunk and others begged for money. Workers were just sitting at the tables goofing off with customers. I paid will a... More

I'd thought that drive-ins were something out os a 50s movie until I tried my first Sonic. And the food makes it even more an adventure. Highly recommend the ice cream treats for an afternoon pick-me-up. Can't go wrong with the lunch or dinner options. A great treat for all ages
