This is your average sonic drive in.burgers and sandwiches, plus ice cream choices. Staff is friendly. Food is served to your vehicle or you can sit on tables at the patio.

I've actually worked at Sonic of Bristol and it would be easy for me to say it was a VERY bad experience. The main manager there had made several racist jokes to me and laughed in my face about it but me, not wanting to...More
