I hope the bugs are just in the app

Pretty good a lot of choices

So I’ve downloaded the app and I’m trying to figure out how to get the coupon for the Free drink if anybody can tell me how to do this I would owe them a drink.. OK I have figured out how to get the coupon for the free drink for downloading the app but when you click redeem it says to show it to the carhop when she shows up well in between her showing up in the 40 minute wait for my order,,, somebody called me and guess where the coupon went???? your guess is as good as mine.,. Because you can’t simply tell the carhop you we deemed the free drink from the downloading of this app you have to actually show them and once you’ve redeemed it you can’t pull it back up which is pretty ridiculous because if it happens to go away then you have no way to prove that you were trying to redeem it...thank goodness there are no bugs in the food because this place wouldn’t be worth coming to... but the food was great LOL..
Also the nearest sonic portion of the app never showed me which sonic was close and I’m fortunately there were three different ones in the town I was visiting so to get that fixed that would be great too. But stay positive you guys will get it...

Inconvenient payment method. Won’t use it because of this.


I love using apps to order food at fast food places, but this app has a very serious flaw that will prevent me from using it which in turn will prevent me from visiting Sonic as much as I might ordinarily. I may be completely wrong about this, and if I am, I will gladly edit or delete this review. From what I understand, I have to add my credit card and then purchase a prepaid Sonic card. Why can’t I just add my credit card and pay as I go from it? I haven’t seen any other place do this. I live in Chicago area and have the Portillo‘s app on my phone. It charges my credit card, I don’t have to buy a prepaid Portillo‘s card. I work in a hospital and sometimes get food for my coworkers. I couldn’t even decide on a reasonable prepaid amount. One visit I might use $10 for myself and the next could be over $50 because I’m getting food for several people. Is my understanding of this is correct, I won’t use the app to order at all, and my visits will be less frequent than other places. I can’t speak on how the rest of the app is, because I can’t use it with the payment method the way it is.



Doesn’t have any info about how it works. Guess you have to be in the know which I wasn’t. Didn’t see any way to place an order or to pay with phone. Only thing I saw to do was buy their card hoping I could then place an order. Don’t see any point in letting them know where I am (slot drive thru or window) if I’m ordering when I’m already there. Maybe they have different mobile methods available at different locations??? I ended up giving them my credit card info to buy their stinky card with a minimum amount them was unable to purchase anything without going to the store first to ask because mid afternoon on a week day my local store never answered the phone. I’m sure I won’t be able to get a refund and I’m just plain frustrated. Maybe this is how they make money — channeling folks into buying useless cards????? Well I’ll go there and spend the full balance and NEVER GO BACK. NEVER EVER EVER NEVER. Which is too bad since I’m new to my area, the location is great, and the menu sounded delicious. No previous experience with Sonic and now I want nothing to do with them.

Short version is the app works great but doesn’t do anything useful.

Developer Response

Sorry to hear your experience was not delightful. Curious as to what your expectation was based on the marketing? We are beginning to roll out Order Ahead to limited markets, and currently the app supports rewards and paying for food at the store.
