In such a hot climate it's really nice to have a selection of cool drinks. Quick service and nice delivery people.

The wife was really missing sweet tea on this long trip, and the local sonic finally cured her cravings. The only place in town with presweet tea. Thank you sonic

I LOVE Sonic's Hamburgers and shakes! That's all I ever get when I go there, which isn't too often, but sometimes I just HAVE TO HAVE one of their burgers, fries and shakes meal.

We've been to many Sonics but the one in Pahrump we no longer go to. Their food is very bad. The oil seems very old. If you are buying something that is not fried, it might be okay, but if they skimp on changing the oil, what else are they skimping on? We avoid this restaurant.

Food was good, not unbelievable, but good and kind of fun for fast food. Service was good. Cherry Limeade is the nectar of the Gods, and this is the best Cherry Limeade ever. The pieces of actual fruit in it were the topper (no I've never eaten at a Sonic before, but I will again).

They often run great specials and are a supporter of many of our community's non profit organizations.

My favorite food is the Coney Dog with mustard and onions with the hot wings coming in second place. I really don't care for the Asian wings though...they are... More
