They messed it up yet again
Posted by on
LAFAYEETE, LOUISIANA -- What happened to me today is only the straw that broke the camel's back. I used to go to the Sonic on Johnston St. in Maurice (city right next to Lafayette), LA at lest 2 times a week. Lately, I haven't been going because they can never get my order right. If I ask for mustard, they put mayo instead. If I ask for mayo, they put mustard instead. If I ask for jalape├▒os, they double my pickles. If I ask for no mayo and no tomatoes, they put mayo and tomatoes. I'm sure you get my point, but it is very aggravating. Previously when I would go, there was a span of time where they messed up my order on 6 consecutive visits to their store (I actually kept a count after the 3rd time to see how much they could screw up). Now, after going back there (after about 4 months of boycotting this store), I ordered an order of mozzarella sticks, and they gave me no sauce. This was done after I said "Please make sure I have marinara sauce."

What is so difficult about this? I guess I'm partially to blame because I didn't check my order before I drove off, but if my boss had to second-guess everything I did like the "I-don't-care-what-you-ordered" employees of Sonic expect me to do, I would be out of a job. Then, to top it all off, I go to the Sonic website and there is no place to put a complaint. It doesn't even look like Sonic's upper-management cares that their employees are incompetent. They're simply here to make a buck. I can promise you that this is the last time I will ever go to Sonic, and this is a shame because Sonic used to be one of my favorite places to eat. There is actually a McDonald's right across the street. I'm not a big fan of McDonald's, but at least they have enough intelligence to prepare the food the way it was ordered.

Sincerely,
Mr. Sick-Of-Sonic-Incompetence

You might want to peruse the McDonald's complaints around here before you go saying that...

Once upon a time Sonic was about quality food and service but today its all about the numbers and just the numbers. The boys in Lafayette are doing a bang up job ~~ in store sells are up with awesome penetration and coverage. So long as the numbers look good nobody at the big table is going to care one iota how the customers are being treated or how bad the food is getting (and it is). It breaks my heart.

Starlord on 05/01/2008:
The one time we had a problem with our order not being right, the manager jumped through hoops and gave us our drinks free to be sure we were satisfied. And your comment about McDeath burgers getting the orders right all the time. You should visit the one in Coolidge before making such a blanket statement. Our Sonics in central Pinal County, AZ are great!

Drink
Posted by on
If their not allowed to sell you a Purple Orgasm because of the name they need to change it because I'm not sure of every little ingredient and it tastes like crap because I didn't have the right ingredients. So they need to come up with a name for it that they are allowed to say and serve.

good review, very concise!
drugdoc121 on 08/12/2011:
Problem is Venice, I don't believe that IS the name Sonic gives the drink. Not only that, apparently doing a quick search shows different names are attributed to this drink as well as different ingredients, depending where in the country you are. Thanks for the translation though.
drugdoc121 on 08/12/2011:
Can't argue with that Venice!
madconsumer on 08/12/2011:
I agree with this review and found it very helpful!

besides, all ages go to sonic, and do we really want kids asking for this by name?
trmn8r on 08/12/2011:
I can't tell if this drink is on the menu or not, and if the OP was trying to make it themself at home ("I did not have all the ingredients").

I'm glad others found this helpful - I could not tell what the complaint is.
Skye on 08/13/2011:
Sonic does not carry a drink called the Purple Orgasm. Bing it, and you'll find out why its called that, but Sonic never called it by that name.

It's just a slang street name people started to call it, because apparently it's SOOO good.
Anonymous on 08/13/2011:
I've never seen so many deleted comments on one review before. LOL But anyway, does Sonic not give the correct name and still serve the drink when asked?
Paige on 05/29/2013:
I work at sonic. If you want the infamous "purple orgasm" (there is not a formal name for it) just ask for a sprite with a shot of cranberry juice, vanilla, and powerade. Enjoy.

New Menu
Posted by on
I am a regular Sonic customer and am very displeased that these two items have been removed from the menu!!! Removing cheddar peppers is like removing the heart of Sonic!! These items need to be returned or else you will loose a large amount of customers!!

The Cheddar Peppers were the heart of Sonic. Really? If they were, I can't imagine why they would get rid of them.

A chain drops items for one of a variety of reasons. One is to add other items. One is due to lack of popularity. One is the item is too hard to source (ingredients, assembly procedure).

It is hard to know why they dropped them. I find it questionable that they were the heart of the organization.
Anonymous on 07/03/2011:
What are chedder peppers? Are they like jalapeno peppers? I can't imagine they will lose a lot of customers because of getting rid of that product. I thought people went to Sonic mostly for the drinks, shakes, and other frozen treats. And for the coney dogs. I doubt they go there just for a side dish
trmn8r on 07/03/2011:
Those are the items I would guess, yaya. Maybe burgers too.

Maybe these are a regional item that works better in some markets than others. I don't see them being a core product though.
Mrs.Cole on 07/03/2011:
4 jalapenos, 330 calories, 150 calories from fat and 17gr saturated fat! That's just from the peppers, I'm sure there would be more to the meal. Could be why they were removed.
Anonymous on 07/03/2011:
Good review. I wouldn't be happy either if a key ingredient was removed. Welcome aboard.
azRider on 07/04/2011:
man I hated those. I used to complain to people I know about the cheddar peppers. I'm happy they are pulling them. for me the heart of Sonic was always the burgers. they used to have a great Thousand island burger. but that pulled that. they used to have a burger #1 and a Burger #2 that you could order; I miss those too. all the burgers have degraded. at least they still have the chili cheese coneys. when they drop that I'm done with them.
Ostate on 07/18/2011:
I agree I loves cheddar peppers probably the best thing in the menu. Anyone know why they were dropped?

No Service
Posted by on
I was just at the Kingshighway Sonic in Saint Louis and I sat in the drive through for over 5 minutes with no one responding to me to take my order. I finally gave up and drove off furious. To make it even more worse there was 5 employees all talking when I drove past in the window. Terrible service!!

If this happened to me, and I REALLY wanted Sonic, I would have stopped at the window and asked that they take my order.

However, I already made my one lifetime trip to the Sonic drive-through.

Is there any chance they were closed?
azRider on 06/05/2011:
I was not aware that sonic had a drive through.
the 3 we have here near me are all drive-in, park, place order via the big menu at the drivers window. none of them have a drive through here. the ones I've been to in OK, TX and NM were the same design. in fact the name is actually 'Sonic Dive-in'. perhaps this is a new sonic design they have where there is a drive though window. yet, when I check the sonic web site there is no mention of a drive through window at any location on their map, and it has a short explanation of how to order at the drive-in stalls they have. so color me confused..
Anonymous on 06/06/2011:
Our Sonic's here have drive-through. Perhaps the speaker was broke, or the motion sensor that alerts them of your presence wasn't working properly. I probably would've pulled forward and asked for my order to be taken.
azRider on 06/06/2011:
well what do you know.. I did some searching and found that some newer Sonics have a drive through! well in that case please ignore all previous comments as I'm a silly goat for not checking before writing.. and here I preach reading first and paying attention.. excuse me while I remove the foot in my mouth.. please carry on..

The Sonic closest to me in CO has a drive through. When I used to work fast food in high school, sometimes the sensor would fail. Mostly, however, it was due to snow.

I tried their food once and decided not to return.

The supersonic Breakfast burrito is pretty good especially with some huyfong but that's about the only thing I eat at Sonic these days.

When I was a kid Sonic had the best hamburgers. Back then they were just an Oklahoma thang. It wasn't until they started serving crap did Sonic become a big hit outside of Oklahoma and now all the United States. So really y'all non-okies got nobody to blame but yourselves for the slop sonic serves today. And that's a fact.
trmn8r on 06/06/2011:
little - I can't describe what it is. It's indefinable!!!

There is this foam you get that is fatty and sweet at the same time. Now what does that make you think of? Mmmm.

Anyway, it is something about the velvety smoothness of the ice cream, carbonation and sweetness that combine to make a sensual delight the gods not dare dream of.

Or, maybe it's just good...
Starlord on 06/06/2011:
Funny, every Sonic I have ever been to has a menu board that you can take your time to decide what you wish to order, and then YOU PUSH A BUTTON. The button lights up a light on the board inside, and your order is taken over the speaker. Odd that the OP did not mention pushing the button, or maybe he/she believes that you should have a carhop on top of you as soon as you pull in.

Has Anyone Tried The New Line Of Hot Dogs From Sonic?
Posted on
USA -- They look good but are they of the same realm as a Nathan's or other gourmet hot dog places? Even close?

Just wondering before I go forking over my hard earned change.

Thanks.

When I eat the lips and tips of an animal, I want it to be beef, not those turkey or chicken dogs. If Sonic's are pure beef, I'd venture on over and give them a try.
Anonymous on 03/08/2011:
They claim to be all beef and you are so correct about cheaper brands of hot dogs. Inedible at best!!
DebtorBasher on 03/08/2011:
All beef can also mean lips, ears, and noses...as long as its 'beef' it can come from any part of the animal.

Debtor (if I may call you that) if the beef dog is Kosher then you don't get those parts, just the beef.
Sir Lord, they (Sonic dogs) can't be THAT bad can they?
madconsumer on 03/08/2011:
unless the dogs are kosher, that would leave me out. nathans, and hebrew national are two kosher dogs. nathans do not use a casing, and hebrew national use some type of cellulose casing. the casing on hebrew national is tough and hard to bite through. nathans is very easy to bite and really good.
Anonymous on 03/08/2011:
I prefer the Hebrew National with the casing.
I sear or sometimes deep fry the dog which makes the casing easier to bite through. I hate when the skin is chewy.
I would doubt that Sonic's dogs are Kosher, the cost would be prohibitive and there are those that don't eat Kosher beef for whatever reason.
DebtorBasher on 03/08/2011:
Though I am NOT a Debtor, you can call me that as long as it is with a capital 'D'.
And I agree about the Kosher dogs, but I was referring to MDS's comment about beef dogs. Hebrew National and Best Kosher dogs are the only ones I buy.

These aren't Kosher but aren't bad. They are available on the west coast.

Please Just Don"T Stop
Posted by on
HEPHZIBAH, GEORGIA -- I don't know where to start. It is just to many problems with the Sonic on 2505 Tobacco Rd Hephzibah, GA 30815-7091 (706) 796-7654. Let's start out with a worm in my strawberry/cherry limeade oh oh oh and the strings in my Java chiller, no wait how about the old crumbling buns, old hamburgers with holes, and charging extra for ingredients that make the product. How are you going to charge me for hot fudge on a sundae when I order a hot fudge Sunday. Or charging me for java mix that makes the java chiller. I have had enough with this location, my next step is a lawyer, the health department, and News 12 on Your Side. I should have done so a long time ago. By the way, if you know someone that works there that trust you a little bit, it's worth chatting with them, they tend to be very honest on "Why you don't want to eat at that location."

If they are charging like 3 dollars for the sundae, and they are charging 2.50 for the ice cream and .50 cents for the hot fudge, then they are not actually charging extra they are just charging per piece. I would look into the actual final price of the sundae and java chiller and see if that's the case, I don't know I haven't been to a Sonic in a while.

Rude Employees
Posted by on
BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA -- During my last visit at a Sonic Drive-in I encountered very rude customer service. The young man that took my order was yelling into the speaker. He told me they were closed and then he said no we aren't. He asked for my order. Before I proceeded, I asked him to lower his voice and explained tha he was yelling. It was so loud that it hurt my ear. He told me I am not yelling even louder and laughed. I thought this was rather rude. His manager was there and never said a word. Apparently it was the end of his shift because he came outside where he was met by a co-worker who said that he could hear him all the way by the trash cans in the back of the store. This was the worst customer ezperience ever. The guy was just rude and malicious for no reason. I will never return to this Sonic!!!

I was going to say what mad said. He probably had his mic turned up to 10 or something. Yelling and being broadcast loudly are 2 very separate issues.
Anonymous on 07/19/2010:
I would vote in favor of the microphone being turned up too loud. And in no way would I use the adjective "malicious" to describe his behavior. That is not only a complete misuse of the word, but it tends to discredit your story. Maybe something along the lines of overbearing, booming voice, etc...but malicious?

No delivery in 25 minutes
Posted by on
BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA -- I pulled into the new Sonic in Bloomington, MN, I pushed the red button and no one came on for 5 minutes. I pushed the button again and ordered a hot fudge sundae and a chiller. After 20 minutes and no delivery, I pushed the button again and asked if there was a problem - no answer or reply. I waited another 10 minutes and left after seeing 4 other cars leave with no food. This is the worst fast food chain I have ever seen and will never return to any Sonic again. I will be calling the parent company today to also let them know about the poor customer service.

Being that they are new maybe they were just having some internal problems. I wouldn't discount the entire chain over one bad experience. I would give them a little while and try again.
thensider on 08/24/2009:
You pushed the button and spoke before a response was given? They cannot hear you until they answer you, just so you know. Was it busy? You are aware that there are only 3 Sonics in the entire state and that they are ALL new, right? You never know what is going on inside the store, perhaps there was a major problem. I would have given the Sonic a chance to make things right before discounting the entire chain.
laklisa on 08/24/2009:
Personally I don't like the Sonics in my area...their food is too greasy. They don't always cook the fries all the way either. One time I got their tots and when I got to the bottom of the holder, there was a puddle of oil. Yuck. However I do love the Sonic blast!

Trying To Get Sonic Sized Tater Tots
Posted by on
TUCKER, GEORGIA -- I went to the Sonic in Tucker, GA on Hugh Howell road today. I placed a VERY simple order: Sonic Sized tater tots with cheese and a regular sonic sized tots. When the order came out, they brought me a small tater tots and a small tots with cheese. I brought this to the car hop's attention, and she set out to correct the problem. HOWEVER, when she came back she brought me a sonic sized tots, nothing else. At this point, I asked for the manager and explained to her what the order was supposed to be and how difficult it had been screwed up! She went in and came back out with a sonic sized tots with cheese, and handed me a bag with the other tots in it. However, it was a small order of tater tots, not a sonic sized tots.

At this point, we just took it and left, since talking to the manager obviously did no good!!! And to make matters worse, when I got home and settled down we realized that not only had they consistently screwed the damned order up, they also overcharged us!! All things considered, THEY SUCK!

Very First Impression... Bad, Very Bad
Posted by on
GROVEPORT, OHIO -- I've seen Sonic around for quite some time passing through different cities. There was never one close enough to try, and I was disappointed. So when a Sonic was being built less than a half mile from my house I was enthusiastic. Watched it being built, and anticipating the progress knowing that I can at last try what I've been hearing about. It finally opened.

Bunch of big orange cones in the driveway, not too tasteful. Made my way to the "speaker box" Had to give my order no fewer than four times and I'm sure I was enunciating clearly. When it was time to get my order, there seemed to be some kind of confusion. She looked at my bag, left for a while, came back, and the process repeated a few times. When it finally came time for my payment she took my credit card and proceeded to hand me a bag. A bag with half my order. I asked for my credit card back and a little more confusion ensued. Got my credit card back, and before I pulled away, I noticed that half my order was missing. Informed her as such. More confusion.

Finally got the second part of my order. It was cold, possibly not even cooked. What a disappointment. I will not be back.

Maybe give them a break. there are always kinks in new places. When the one and only Sonic we have here opened, there were such lines, the cops had to direct traffic. It was a MESS for several weeks, but is great now.

What is all the hype about Sonic anyway? It's just fast food right??

They just opened one of these in Chicago I heard. I was always wanting to try it. Probably still will next time I'm back there.

raven2002,best answer!!!

Sonic's food is tasteless and bland,but the root beer floats rock!

whenever I have gone to sonic, I had to pay before the order was even made.

I cannot say I enjoy their food, seems thing are all deep fat fried. but I do like their burgers, and the breakfasts are decent.
but the one thing I truly will go out of my way for is, their orange dream slush. these take me back to my childhood when one could get those orange pushup ice cream pops. funny how a simple flavor can take one back to a simpler time.

give them time to adjust, and I am sure you will enjoy many things they offer.

Sonic was good when the first opened about 30 years ago.
Now that they've branched out everywhere, they plain suck.
Food quality went to crap!

I tried a vanilla shake the other day, and was not impressed at all. I'll have to try the orange slush, that sounds pretty good!

I must try these drinks and desserts.
Their burgers are dry as a bone. Overated FF joint. IMO

Been to Sonic when we moved here 3 years ago. It was nasty. The best part of that meal was that cherry limeade drink. I'd go back for one of those any day.
