Long line ar drive through, and no one is taking orders. We drive through and park, and still no one responding. We wait thirty minutes for a drink order only. My husband told me that he went inside for service last week and his feet stuck to the floor. This place is so bad it's comical

Visited Sonic and ordered one drink and sat in the drive through line for over 30 minutes! Two other vehicles behind me received their orders before me, each time with the employee passing by asking if that was my order, second time finally leaving. Obviously they need better management and a more competent staff that cares about their jobs!

TERRIBLE service!!! Extremely slow even with one other car there. Waited almost 40 minutes just to get the order wrong even after having them repeat it back to me. Took my money, then after leaving I realized they had missed something. Called them to talk to a manager only to be told they ran out of that item!! So take... More

Literally the worst Sonic in the United States. Went through the drive through to be told they were virtually out of EVERYTHING! Don't they do inventory? Or have a manager?

How can they advertise a banana shake if they don't ever have fresh bananas?! I always hear, "sorry we are out of bananas at this time. Would you like to substitute lafy taffy banana flavor?" Um no if I wanted banana flavor I'd order that to begin with! I could understand once or twice being out but it's been about... More

We needed a quick meal on our way out of town, and these guys delivered. We sat at one of the outside tables and the meal came within minutes. The manager on shift was who took our order and he was very friendly. The guy who delivered came back twice to make sure we were doing okay. The last time... More

Waited for 8 minutes at the window once we pulled up while we listened to employees bicker and we were ignored. Food was cold and my burrito fell apart.
