This place was so slow and food was not that good. Save your money and find another place to eat. Everyone was getting the wrong food and waiting too long. Should have just went to a steak house and ate

Terrible! My sisters was looking for a quick bite to eat before we headed back to Michigan and they chose this Sonic. We pulled up to the drive up service, pressed the button and it took at least 10 minutes to get assistance. So we decided to go through the drive thru instead and that was just as horrible, it...

We're from Canada and we don't have any "Sonics" (unfortunately). We ordered coffee for us and breakfast sandwiches for the kids and it came to around $20.00 US.

The place was not crowded, yet the responsiveness to the orders was glacial. Maybe some of the call buttons didn't work. Once you actually got a human to respond, they could not understand English.

I was not impressed at all. We were looking forward to the usual sonic meal. We pulled in and parked, once deciding on our meals I pushed the call button. After waiting 5 minutes without an answer I pushed the button again. I ended up leaving and going somewhere else.

Took the kids there before we went to the water park. Kids loved it and the food was great. To bad there is not one where I live we would be going more often. Had so many things to pick it took us a while to decide what we wanted.

Conveniently located across the street from the resort. Food was good as always and the service was fast.

It is hard to write a review about a chain restaurant but I can tell you I've been here twice and enjoyed it...good service and clean (as clean as my car is LoL). My personal favorite is the hot dogs
