Before leaving the pines, the girls asked if we could take them to Sonic (as it has become part of our road-tripping tradition). On this visit, the girls ordered shakes and they were not disappointed. As always, we enjoyed sitting outside on the patio.

We had lunch here while passing through. We had service with a smile and enjoyed sitting outside. The food was good and restroom was clean. Easy access from the highway too.
