“tasty burger and fries”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

pretty standard fast food - the burgers are tasty, but at over 700 calories for a regular burger, I start regretting it from the first - well, maybe the second or third - bite. Fries were not fresh.

“Good Food, Fast”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We ordered our food and in no time she arrived with our food and drinks and it was very good. The hamburgers and fries were fresh. Only thing was the milshake was so thick, I couldn't use the straw -- needed a spoon.

“Impossible to order due to distortion on drive through speaker for constantly mediocre fast food.”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

After four attempts to order I just had to drive to the window to order. Distortion on speaker was acknowledged but the person at the window said it has been that way for a while. Food wasn't worth the hassle.

“Best fast food brewed iced tea on the East Coast”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

No powder brews, or fountain tea here. Their iced tea with lemon is the best available. I have withdraws when I travel. Great am and pm pricing (before 11 am only 99 cents for their Route 44 oz size) and 1/2 price from 2-4 pm Happy Hour! Worth the trip if you've never been to a Sonic and often they will give out a survey coupon for a free drink on your next visit. Be careful to ask for the right amount of ice for your liking, or you may easily turn your 44 oz of drink into a quick 10 oz drink. While I'm not a fan of fast food, a real cholesterol boosting, heart blocking treat would be a tasty chili coney dog.

“Good refueling stop”
Reviewed September 1, 2009

We hit our first Sonic Drive-In on a recent trip from Brooklyn to Gettysburg. The food was OK but the sides (Jalepeno poppers) and drinks (slushes, limeades) would be something I would definitely come back for.
