Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We came to sonic in beautiful Ruidoso hoping for refreshment. We waited over 20 minutes after pushing the red button with no response. Once we stopped a staff member asking to speak to a manager, we were told they were short staffed and it would be 20 more minutes before we could order. We asked to speak with a manager twice and were refused our request ☹️

We were heading to McDonald's but their line was ridiculous. Wasn't sure if sonic was open at 10am. Turns out they were. Fast service and better tasting breakfast than McDonald's

Typical Sonic, after all, they're a chain. But local management is at fault for staff that does not pay attention to detail ... check your order before you leave. We've found over time that more than 1/2 our orders are either wrong or incomplete. As far as Sonic brand issues, not just local issues ... their hot dogs cost the same as always, but have just in the last few days been massively downsized ... to about the diameter of your little finger ... still served in the same sized bun as before. Looks like an extra small body in a 5Xl jacket .. it's laughable it's such an obvious travesty. Hate - HATE - it when people try to trick the customer. At least McDonald's is consistent & doesn't insult you by playing games. End result??? - only go to Sonic when you crave something McDonalds doesn't offer ... like for hot-dogs. But, from above, Sonic'a blown that advantage.

Nice Sonic, quick drive thru service, good prices, and food isn't bad! Friendly staff. I love their plain vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone! Try it!

Found the same quality here that we have at home. Service was good and the food was the same as here at home. Ok, it wasn't the Hyatt restaruant, so what.
