We stopped in here for a quick bite midway from Carlsbad Caverns to Roswell. The slot we pulled into (#14) speakers were so bad nothing could be understood. Finally some one came out to take our order. After 23 minutes, nothing, so I pushed the...More

We had a NY hot dog, cburger, onion rings and a coke for 11.49. Based on that price I'd say it was a good deal. Hot dg was fine, but they did not bring the ketchup as requested, but fixed it. Food was fine, but...More

Extremely slow for an incorrect order. We ordered two drinks and one snickers waffle cone. The waffle cone had no snickers, it was just caramel and ice cream, and we waited a solid 25 minutes for it. If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else!...More

Stopped in earlier today and ordered two drinks. Over 15 minutes later, I left.....without the drinks. I didn't think it took THAT long to fix a drink.

It took 30 minutes to get 3 shakes, 1 malt and a cheeseburger. Ironically the cheeseburger had no cheese and the malt didn't get mixed so all the malt powder was in the bottom. Terrible!

Even Sonic. The food was bland but the service was okay. I don't expect much from fast food though, so it did make it so I wasn't hungry anymore. Better than hunger.

Spent 30 minutes of my lunch hour waiting on just a drink and a grilled cheese sandwich, which was delivered cold. Noticed a waitress talking to a person in a vehicle for 20 minutes. This must be the slowest Sonic in the world. Never again.

We were in town visiting family and it was pretty hot outside for the entire trip. We stopped by several times to grab a big drink or two on our way here and there. We only got fountain drinks but a Sonic is a Sonic...More

I had never eaten at a Sonic before and thought I'd give it a try after seeing all their ads while in town about the Pretzel Dog. Oh, I wish I had just driven on by. The only part of my order that was palatable...More
