My son ordered ice cream and it came with a black hair on top! Instead of apologizing, the young woman at the window was defensive and rude. I returned the untouched ice cream, demanded my money back and left. They struggled to figure out how to return my money and were extremely rude.

Traveling through and needed a quick fix on my sweet tooth and thanks to GPS & Sonic I found my fix. Great shakes and they're half price from 2 til 4 pm. Fast and friendly service and sock hop atmosphere. I give em 3 out of 5 forks. Check em out!

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... More

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.

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.

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.

We enjoyed a few visits to this sonic. Milkshakes were very tasty and reasonably priced food.

This is the type of place you go & enjoy the great burgers. Not really "Fast" food since they do cook your burger fresh. Enjoy it while you can, because an hour later you'll be in the restroom. How can something so good send you straight to the restroom afterwards. Either way, sometimes it's worth it.

The Mebane Sonic is a great place to eat out with young children. In addition to inside service, they have tables outside which are great if the weather is agreeable. They also have car hop service if you prefer. The atmosphere is very relaxed and perfect for families with young children who want to eat out, but don't want to... More
