4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2016

I stopped in Merkel, TX to get a bite to eat and once I took the exit off of I -20 it didn't take long to find this Sonic along the service road. Service was good. I like the extensive menu they have at Sonic, and that it is not expensive. Before long I was back on the interstate again... More

Absolutely terrible in every way. Slow service, due to the employees loitering about talking instead of working; rude behavior behind the windows (I can read your lips, insulting people because they can't hear you.) Oh. I also saw you dip your HANDS into the ice. Disgusting. Will NEVER deign to go to another Sonic again.

Were stranded over new year's 2015.This was one of the only places open and they extended their hours over the holiday to accommodate the people in the local motel. Fabulous milkshakes. We go out of our way for a Sonic milkshake now- lol

Thank Beth Q
