SONIC, RED BUTTON, GARBLED VOICE, SAY IT AGAIN, Don't use the card-swipe car-side most are screwed and you can't read the buttons on the keypad anyway. As for the CAR-HOPS: WELL, what you see is what you get, dreadlocks, cigarette odor, the shrill voice that breaks glass, or...who's working this week, open late, prices are typical, specials are the same,...

Simple food made to order in a timely fashion. I have been to this location many times. The staff is friendly, the food is classic Sonic food, and the servers have always been smiling and upbeat.

We had the sonic version of dairy queens blizzards. They were ok but not great by any means. This is the 2nd time I've been disappointed with Sonics ice cream. Not bad, just not great.

Sonic is for those craving nostalgia. The carhops bring the food right to your car window in record time and always with a smile! The food is very good and the ice cream is to die for!!

I love the sonic burgers....the only pet peeve that I have is that the milkshakes are never mixed well and you end up with all the good stuff on the bottom...please mix a little longer...thank you...staff and service are good...

Sonic Drive-ins have been a favorite place for a quick meal for nearly 35 years. We seak them out when making road trips over other fastfood places. Dropped in here yesterday after a morning of kayaking on the New River. Had a burger and chicken wrap with 2 limeades. Tab came to $15.15. The food was brought to the car... More

Stopped by this Sonic for a quick lunch on the go while visiting the University. Service was slower than other Sonics I've been to, food was about the same, which is to say better than the run-of-the-mill joints like McDonalds and BK. We would go back.

As always, we enjoyed the food and drinks from Sonic. Fresh lemon slushies are the best! Wish we had one closer to home.

A drive in experience of the 50's. You don't have to get out of your car, just talk into the speaker. The ham and cheese breakfast sandwich is great and very filling!
