Love this location – I always eat out at this sonic because the carhops are not rude at all, they always carry a smile on there face and the food there is great as well. I rarely ever have to wait long for my order to be taken and the service is just wonderful. I do reccomend this sonic. they are fast to get the oreders out even when it is busy.
Retro-outfitted servers deliver burgers, malts and sandwiches to your car at this '50s-style drive-in chain. – In Short
Founded in 1953 as a hamburger-and-root-beer stand, this nostalgic eatery is known for its intercom ordering system and roller-skating carhops. While servers rarely roller skate anymore, the famous made-to-order, all-beef burgers and thick malts are still menu favorites. Other signature items include Toaster sandwiches (made with thick Texas toast), extra-long chili and cheese hot dogs and hand-battered onion rings and tater tots. Desserts include chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shakes and fresh fruit slushes.
Worst location around – This location is, quite possibly, the most consistantly bad location I've ever visited. I stopped by tonight for a drink on the way home, but, after waiting approximately 6-8 minutes for someone to come over the speaker, I was told they were deciding to close the stalls for the moment. Nevermind that other customers nearby, clearly locals to the area were still being assisted via the stall speakers. This is the third such incident I've experienced at this location in the last month. Apparently the staff is allowed to decided who and when they want to serve, which is wholly uncalled for. Frequently you can hardly understand them through the speaker, and, the one time I actually got a soda and some tots from this location (the middle of the day, so no excuse to close randomly), it was ill-prepared, and the carhop was terribly rude and didn't communicate at all. I think I've pretty much had it with this location, and I'll go ahead on up the road to the next closest location. Don't even bother here.
