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.

Nice to find a Sonic in such a small town in the middle of nowhere! While staying at The View Hotel, we stopped two nights in a row for Mocha Java Chillers -- delicious!

We stopped by for a quick milkshake, but in 15 minutes nobody even took our order. We finally went inside to order, and 15 minutes later, we got our shakes. We ordered two different shakes, but got both the same. We didn't want to wait so we paid and left. I'm not sure if all Sonics operate this way, but... More

So after a long dusty drive through the beauty of Monument Valley how do you put an explanation point on it? Cherry Lime Aid. It was very nice.

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
