When you go to Sonic, are you supposed to tip?

i don't. i get that they have to come outside to give you your food, but that's their own fault. i'd like to know if they make a min wage or if they are getting a min waitress wage.

Great question. With the price of their food, I hope that the servers are making a decent fast-food wage.
While I'm a generous tipper, I'm not inclined to tip another buck or whatever for an already high-priced, average-tasting fast food meal.

When they are working carhop they make a little more than a server's wage, but no where near minimum wage.

It is stupid that they don't have a window at the drive thru and have to carry out to you. It is actually less complicated to just go to one of the park lanes and pay with credit card because it doesn't give an option to leave a tip.

if they are not making min wage, and not getting tips, sonic has to compensate them to reach minimum wage. the only way they can legally pay a server's wage is if they create an environment that promotes tipping, which sonic does not. as somebody mentioned, there is no option for tipping when using a credit card at the carhop stations.
i agree that sonic is overpriced, especially in their drinks, but i find their service to be excellent. i don't know if they have ever gotten an order wrong and they are always friendly. and more importantly, to me, my drinks never are handed to be dripping wet and sticky. can't say the same for any other place in town.
