I found out that there will be a Sonic coming to a city that's around 45 minutes away from me! Near the mall I like to frequent!

I keep seeing yummy commercials and hearing about how great the place is, but the nearest one was in Iowa.

W00t! W00t!

Yeah, they finally opened one in the town next to us. We were very happy to find that out.

Cherry limeade! :D

YES!

I actually am not a big fan of the food there (though it is certainly edible) - but the cherry limeade is...amazing.

They got a Sonic around here last fall....I still haven't been to it yet because my driver's side window doesn't roll down and it's been too damn cold.

If you'd get your little butt up here this spring or summer, we can certainly go there!

Ugg, the nearest one to me is about an hour away according to MapQuest... Which would put it about an hour and a half drive, probably more with traffic. :P And when I lived in Ohio, the nearest was in New York!

I wanna try one sooo baaad! All those commercials tease me mercilessly!! :(

Ah, I love Sonic! The drinks, the cheddar poppers, the cheese sticks, the TATER TOTS! I prefer other chains' burgers, but I usually go to Sonic because of the Tots. Why don't more places have tater tots!?!

Yum, tater tots!

I also love their onion rings. Instead of using frozen onion rings, they bread and fry fresh onions. Quite nice with ranch dip.

Now I'm getting hungry! :p

Love their guacamole bacon burgers and curly fries. Didn't know they had tater tots. I might have to try them next time.

I've got one just up the street from me. :D:D

You're gonna love Sonic . . . we do.:D

Of course, we've had a few locations here for several years now . . . nearest location is maybe 6 minutes from my house.

Footlong Chili Cheese Coney dogs and tater tots . . . their onion rings are good too - they're HUGE.

Cherry limeade's always a classic . . . however my fave has been traditionally the peanut butter milkshake.

But then, those Sonic Blasts are addictive as sin . . . send one with M&M's please. I'll cover the postage.:lol:

There's a rumor going around Sonic is going to build a restaurant in my city. I'll believe it when I see it.

We're going to have an A&W opening up, probably sometime next month.

They actually film those commercials (most of them) at a Sonic near me. I was next door at the Taco John's and the woman giving me my food was all excited. She pointed for me to look out my other window at the film crew and said that they'd done this several times. They shut down one side of the Sonic and let the actors improv there and the actors will also often talk with people who are nearby and fans. She said they are very nice.

She said she's seen the two guys and the husband/wife duo. Apparently the ad agency that thought up with the whole scheme is in KC or nearabouts or the guy behind it all was from near here. That's hearsay, but *shrugs* I did see them setting up to film it.

(Edit1: Just thought I'd note... this specific Sonic is in Blue Springs. Opposite side of town, but yeah... not far!)
(Edit2: I just got back from the Sonic that is 5 minutes from me, ironically enough. Went to pick up a Route 44 Diet Coke. The food is average but boy do they do soft drinks right.)

We have one here, but it's clear across town from where I now live. I used to pass by it every day on my way to work, occasionally stopping for breakfast or lunch. I had to pick up and move closer to work (stupid spiraling gas prices) and so now I don't have easy access to my tater tots and cherry limeade. :(

Hm, Blue Springs...had a manager from there once, although I never understood why she'd want to commute from Blue Springs to Ward Parkway :shrug: I never got out that way...I usually went to the Sonic in Waldo (on Wornall). It was a bit of a drive, but the only ones closer weren't safe to go to at night (east of Troost and Westport). Well...Westport probably would've been ok safety wise, just a pain in the butt getting in and out of there at night.

Happily now, I live in a town with 3 Sonics, all within 10 minutes drive and no ghetto. Yay!

Culver's is better, IMO.

Sonic is building a resturant about 3 miles from me thats supposed to open this spring. I have never been to one, but from what i have read in the local paper, and have heard from friends that have been to one is that they are really great.

I would just like to be the one to point out that this thread title reminds me of the damned smileys with sound ads. You know the ones.

Also, we've got A&Ws all over the place up here. It boggles the mind that someone would actually be excited over one opening up o_O

there is a sonic down the street from me, but what i really want in this town is a chick-fillea

AdminAssistant

Yeah, I miss Chick-fil-a. They have a mini one in one of the campus dining places...but they don't have the sweet tea! And that's one of the best parts of Chick-fil-a.

~points to 2 sonics within a 5 minute drive from my house, 4 chik-a-fil the furthest one being 8 minutes away, 3 pals (something you'll NEVER find outside of my area), and central park about 30 minutes away (reminds me of checkers WAY back in the day)~

Ok...I'm done now...~runs and hides~

we may not have any sonics (the closest one is about an hour and a half to two hours away) but we do have In-N-Out Burger.

Guttarzan shoots & scores.
Of course, when I was a teen we had the Balling Motel in Logan, Utah.

Back on topic, a fantastic local chain on the Wasatch Front is Crown Burgers - imaginate an inch of finely sliced pastrami on a truly righteous cheeseburger: Now that's a Cheeseburger From Paradise!:D

As a former employee of A&W Canada, I can say--with some authority--that A&W Canada is different from A&W America. From what I've heard, A&W Canada is better than A&W America, but I cannot confirm this firsthand.

Also, in closing:
1) When I think of "Sonic", I think of a certain local radio station.
2) Even bad A&W is better than every BK meal I have ever had. Every time I go there, I wonder if they made my Whopper in the kitchen or fished it out of a Dumpster.

Ah, different. Gotcha.

When I think of "Sonic" I think "speedy blue hedgehog."

I can think of about a dozen Sonics in my town, heck even my hometown that is tiny has had a Sconic for about 25 years. Frankly I don't care much for their general fair but I do like the steak toasters and the onion rings are OK if you don't get the big ones. I really like the cranberry slush.

For our out of country friends: Sconic is a somewhat old-fashioned drive-in burger joint complete with car-hops and some still wear roller-skates. They generally serve standard burger/fries/sodas/ice cream whatevers.
Personally I think A&W is better especially the freshly mixed Root Beer.
