“Hangout for teenagers”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

On July 28, 2001, I went to the Sonic. When I entered the drive on the right side there were 17 teenagers blocking entrance to the parking areas. They refused to move. I moved forward to the left around them, when the teenager who was sitting on the ground threw himself backward stretching out on the pavement. I barely missed him. I pulled into the drive space nearest the door and ask to speak to the manager. After 45 minutes she finally came out to talk to me. I told her what had happened. She was aware of the group of teenagers blocking traffic, and in general harrasing and intimidating the customers who came in me. I had attempted to leave when a half dozen of the individuals lined up behind my car and would not move so I could leave. The manager finally came out. Her reply to me situation was: I can't do anything about, I
m busy with other customers - I have a lot of hamburgers to make. I did not have my sell phone with me, I asked her to call the police. She told me she wouldn't do it. She again told me she couldn't do anything about. I called her a lier. Her retort was, to tell me she would direct traffic for me. And then she went over to the group of teenagers and told them that I wanted to call the police. All of a sudden I could not see anyone my rear view mirror. I left. Today, I called Sonics Corp Office. Apparently this Sonic on Denton Tap Road is privately owned. I called the Sonic Administrative offices responsible for this store at 1-800-579-6656. I spoke with them at length. They said they were going to contact the owner for his review. I have called the store half a dozen times today, there is no answer. Interesting to see if I get a return communication.
