Rude management, terrible service, rude servers, horrible food. Waited for almost 15 minutes for service and finally knocked on door, was told if we wanted anything to go to window to order. Kept turning button off. But did not bother to let us know, that we were wasting our time. Was very Rude about it. Cars sitting all over parking lot waiting to be wsitef on, and never at anytime did he let them know they were wasting their time waiting.

I wanted to treat the family to some ice cream on what felt like the warmest day of 2014 so far. The Sonic advertising campaign on TV worked on me despite numerous bad experiences with their food. I set aside my memories of indigestion past and figured that I would be good with their desserts. Nope nope nope, turns out I still don't like Sonic. My wife worked at a Sonic in her high school years but her strolls down memory lane did nothing for my taste buds. I had a simple vanilla shake but it came to me so thick I couldn't touch it for an hour as I'm not part vacuum. On top was a topping that tasted just like kool whip (which I also don't care for) instead of whipped cream. If I wanted thick soft serve I would have ordered it, just as my family did. Theirs was slightly better than mine, they had those things where the candy or nuts or whatever are blended in. I didn't like theirs but they were not as unpleasant as mine. This is clearly a matter of taste, if you like blue bunny brand ice cream you will probably like this stuff....I don't. I would much rather have had DQ or even Mickey Ds. I had no issue with the staff apart from a nasty looking apron by the server and I must admit that Sonic makes a fantastic cherry limeade drink, but I won't be returning until my wife makes me go again. Other than the commercials, the drinks, and the charm of a drive-in I just don't know how Sonic stays in business.
