“Best fast food brewed iced tea on the East Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

No powder brews, or fountain tea here. Their iced tea with lemon is the best available. I have withdraws when I travel. Great am and pm pricing (before 11 am only 99 cents for their Route 44 oz size) and 1/2 price from 2-4 pm Happy Hour! Worth the trip if you've never been to a Sonic and often they will give out a survey coupon for a free drink on your next visit. Be careful to ask for the right amount of ice for your liking, or you may easily turn your 44 oz of drink into a quick 10 oz drink. While I'm not a fan of fast food, a real cholesterol boosting, heart blocking treat would be a tasty chili coney dog.

“Good refueling stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We hit our first Sonic Drive-In on a recent trip from Brooklyn to Gettysburg. The food was OK but the sides (Jalepeno poppers) and drinks (slushes, limeades) would be something I would definitely come back for.

Clean and quick, but the food is too sugary.
