I came in late expecting old meat and cold fries....i was extremely happy to see the exact opposite. Delicious!!

Okay the food was really good The manager was nice. I will have to say that she was overworked and a place was definitely understaffed. The outside eating area was absolutely clean and it looked great so you're probably asking why I'm giving it a three? Well I would give it a higher rating if the bathroom wasn't filthy. If they cleaned up the bathroom they'd get a higher rating from me. No one wants to use a dirty bathroom.

The best GM ever!! This place is really courteous to tending to each and every guest & the patio is a pleasant place. Donna was really helpful with assisting a large order.

My experience here (late night to be fair) was off to a rocky start and then the manger took over and he was really cool

This is a great Sonic location right off bearss avenue. It is never crowded. The drink happy hour really gives a huge discount and you can get drinks for less than a dollar in some cases.

Was attempting to eat there, but unfortunately they did not accept mobile payments and that's all I had with me. Employees were nice though.

Burger was mushy. Service at Bearrs Ave. store was terribly slow.

Sonics is delicious. I love their onion rings and mozzarella sticks. The food is fresh and they have great customer service. I will definitely be coming back.

Donna was EXTREMELY rude! We made a mobile order ahead, checked in as prompted.. after 10 min of waiting and no response we pressed the button. When Donna answered she literally told us we DID not check in and had an awful attitude after we confirmed we did check in.

Better than most fast-food joints. Great Happy Hour deals on milk shakes.

its good but none of the sauces are available like buffalo and they said they dont offer small popcorn chicken makes no sense since its on the menu

Melissa Roberts

The 2 times I've been there I've waited at least 27 minutes. No excuse for the wait I was 2nd car back first time and 3rd one back last time. I couldn't care less if they have to serve Uber first. Close down drive through!!!!!

I waited 30 minutes in drive thru. Then the drive thru cashier blamed me for the wait. Then when I told him about it was his fault he said he forgot about me.

Decent food reasonable prices gold ice cream

Always a good experience here,

Just simply, the wait was insane for no reason! I pulled up to the line at 8pm and there was a car at the window and a car waiting to order. 5 minutes past and the car waiting to order I suppose couldn't take it anymore so he left and same car at the window. I sat waiting to order for another 5 minutes and still same car at window. I eventually ordered 3 slushees and ice cream sandwiches pulled up to the window with exact change and waited 15 minutes at the window for my 3 slushees and ice cream sandwiches. 2 kids and broken AC waiting still for something cold in this Florida heat. Almost 30 minutes is absolutely unacceptable for "Fast Food" especially when you only have 2 cars to serve. Nothing wrong with my order but the experience was far from decent. Hard to find a good sonic in Tampa. It's a-shame because I love there menu items. Next time going to Dairy Queen for Ice Cream.


My husband ordered a strawberry shake and it was so yummy.

Michele Price McIntire

Anne Nicely

Worst sonic location! You wait forever for food that takes a couple minutes. Then when they finally get to your car the order is wrong not to mention they don’t tell you how much longer it’s going to be until your food comes out. I waited for 15mins and gave them the same courtesy they gave me, which was nothing! I drove off and will never go back.

The food at this location is more often then not disgusting. Very rarely is food cooked well and appetizing. I usually feel sick after indulging a sonic craving at this location. The drinks are good, but then again a limeade is always delish! As far as the employees go, they are awful, rude and highly unprofessional, aside from two girls. I once observed a "manager" come out of the kitchen go to the bathroom, come back and pet a stray cat before going back in the kitchen, where he did not wash his hands before returning to work. Absolutely revolting and nauseating! This location will not serve walk-ups or parked cars after 10pm, sometimes earlier depending on who is working. The reason for this had been stated as "for employee safety purposes", even though the employees have to go outside to hand food off to UberEats delivery drivers. Which makes no sense! If you are craving Sonic, your best and safest bet is go to another location.

Waiting in the drive thru for 27 minutes!!! Awful service, when I asked he said that they have to fill the Uber orders first... really? Food was good but I won’t be back.

Every time I order here my order is wrong and the staff is VERY rude. Once I had a manager check my order as delivered out and I say for 20 mins once I buzzed back in another mgr on staff was asked the mgr who originally took my order what happened only to find out that the mgr refused to bring my order out b/c she was taking the day off and going hm by 12 noon and yesterday the boy taking my order actually yelled at me for asking why one slush price was higher than the other and when asked why yelling he told me he been there all day and said my mgr go finish your order, turned the speaker off and walked out and sat on the patio while the mgr came out to complete my order. I will be contacting corporate about this matter. GO @ YOUR OWN RISK

Employee named: Edward-17 behaved like the illiterate. He pulled my car into Menu slot and decided to order Couple of items, then the same employee because of his laziness asked me to come Drive in. He didn’t put me any sign to pull my Car to Drive in. After coming to Drive In, he was not helping about the Menu. I was asking for Ice-creams, but he asked me to pull the car back and Go and see the Menu Myself. He was Rude at me and didn’t get my Item what I wanted. I have seen the most uneducated and garbage employee In my entire Life.

Won't be back to this location... unfortunately took more than 20 minutes to even get acknowledged. And the sonic had no clue how to process a mobile order. Before you ask the sonic was not busy. I've had good luck with sonic in the past and hope this was an anomaly but this was ridiculous.
