This was the first and last time we come here. The service was terrible and the restrooms were poorly taken care of. Not to mention that their ice cream machine wasn't working. First impressions left a negative experience for us. We won't be going to any Sonics. Period

I had never been to a place where you park, give your order and they bring it to the car, we have drive thru but nothing like this. The milkshakes are really good especially the chocolate.

This is one of the few locations that you can get green chillies in the burger in northern AZ. It is nice to sit outside anytime except for winter months.

Stopped by on our way back to Vegas after a long road trip. The guy in the drive thru was super polite. And it's Sonic, so you can always count on consistency.

At 9:15 at night we waited about 15-20 min to get our order in the drive thru. We were in the drive through by the menu and I was able to get out of the car and read the menu while my husband was driving till we were even greeted by someone that worked the drive thru. The menu was... More

Not much choice of places to eat in Kayenta, but that's an OK tradeoff for the beautiful country around the 4-corners area. The food here was average, and I was somewhat put off by the cost of a cup of water -- 59 cents plus tax. It's bad enough when places charge for the cup, but at least that's understandable... More

It is what it is. The wife and I were passing through and needed somewhere to eat so we chose Sonic. We hardly ever eat fast food but when you're in the middle of nowhere, your options are limited. I would recommend to someone passing through. Service was fast and food was the same.

Typical Sonic menu, one of the last cheap places before Monument Valley. Wasn't super crowded, fast service, cant ask for much else.

Located conveniently at the final piece of civilisation South of Monument Valley on highway 160 just before the 163 turn-off towards Monument Valley. There are a few hotels and an essential gas station here, perfect before or after your trip to Monument Valley (The best view (named Forrest Gump Point!) is located around 12 miles North of the Utah Border,...
