As is the case with all Sonics, the shakes are good here, even better than at the local old school ice cream place most folks in the area rave about. If you time your visit here you can save big....so after 8 or during happy hour if you are here for drinks.

Good food at reasonable prices. Pushy staff to get their tips or they try to keep your change including dollars without asking.

Sonic's food is always good and you get what you expect. The prices are reasonable. The service is good and friendly. They frequently have specials. A nice family place to go. We eat there frequently.

Great burgers with mustard, add tots and drink for a combo deal. 1/2 price drinks from 2-4. In the summer 1/2 price shakes after 8pm.
