When seeing Sonic advertise its grand opening at this venue, we got excited. The double cheeseburger is tasty, served on a nice big bun and accompanied by an upgrade in the French fries from past visits elsewhere. Being located near The Palms won’t hurt business, either. Definitely beats McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s in the fast food industry. We would also recommend the $.99 single burgers. Sodas are fine and so is the service. The site is clean and attractive. It’s difficult to give a fast-food place a high-5 in wimpys, because the product is mass produced and seldom cooked on the spot. But Sonic comes up with a good effort and our No. 1 stop when needing a quickie burger.
