Fun experience at first, inexpensive food and drink. The kids like it. Not on my list of a family dinner location. Drive thru at happy hour for half price drinks. It's ok for a quick beverage or ice cream.

Food is usually OK at Sonic, as I've eaten at many. But this is the first time I've been in one in the snow. Sorry, but why would anyone want to eat smelly food in a car in February? Not enough room, wondering where to put the garbage, and smelling hot dog for two days after... No more for me!

The food is nothing special. The drinks are worth a try. Inexpensive, varied, and fun. No tables - just drive thru.

We don't have a Sonic in Maine, so whenever we travel my husband always treats me to a Cherry Limeaid--my favorite. Nobody makes them quite like Sonic!! The food, whenever we've eaten there is just ok but it's the Limeaid that draws me in!
