More than just a place to eat, Sonic Drive-In is an experience. They have been around for many years ago and you can still get that old-fashioned feel with carhops bringing your food right away! As many of us are aware by now; this fast-food chain does not offer sit-down dining but they do provide their goods through drive-through windows.

One Google reviewer, Ally S., shared;

“This is my favorite sonic on the west side. It’s literally so far from my house but your staff are amazing. Each and everyone have treated me so nicely and been so respectful and they always get my orders right… They are also so nice to my dog. We come in a few times a week and I always order him an ice cream or corndog and if he needs water they give him a small cup of water. It’s the little things they do but it all adds up. I hope management knows how amazing their staff are compared to so many other Sonics.. I appreciate you all & so does Bailey (my dog♥️)”
