My favorite "mixed drink" is cherry lime Dr. Pepper. We almost always order this and have tried most all the food on the menu. The small hamburger is a bargain and comes with all the typical fixings. The french fries and onion rings are delicious as well. Chicken strips and gravy, grilled cheese sandwiches, several kinds of hot dogs....all good.

I've been by this place a couple of times lately and both times the service was very slow. You are better off going to the drive through . The second time I was there the car hop didn't have change and said he'd be right back. I had to buzz in again about ten minutes later to remind them to... More

Not a lot to say aside from a typical Sonic. Service was quick and friendly. Food was just fine. A good stop for a tourist.

Hot weather requires iced tea with lots of ice. Be sure to check to make sure you get sweet or unsweet depending on your order. It's an easy mistake. Hit it at happy hour to get more bang for your buck.

If you like lime or lemonade, this is the place for the real thing."::: Better yet, go during "happy hour" and receive a "biggie" for $1 - served to you by a friendly, ready to please "carhop". Perhaps my tastebuds are getting old but the quality/taste of "days of yore" are not as good as I remember - hamburgers need... More

Advertising a little unclear and unavailable as advertised on date ad was to be effective. Good chili cheese cony, good onion rings, good fries, and crisp corn dogs n onion rings. Satisfying Route 44 Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper

Had a big order of food ready quickly for our family, and the staff was super sweet, offered us a cup of mints for the road and plenty of napkins and ketchup as well.

I grew up going to drive-in's like this. They were part of the culture for many decades. It's still fun & the food is excellent, especially the shakes.

went for shakes before heading back up the mountains. Service was a bit slow, but the shakes and smoothies were really good.

We were traveling between Alamogordo and Las Cruces daily due to a relative being in the hospital so we stopped at Sonic every morning for our soft drinks and burritos. Consistent Sonic quality at the one on South White Sands Blvd. Always good and fast, but one morning they were having a staff meeting and it seemed like the customers... More
