Drove to Sonic Restaurant

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Was Mars before or after that place was the called Red Barn/Red Barron? I remember going there as a Cub Scout and learning what it meant to be a fry cook. Play some High Ball and grab a shake. I've got money in my sweaty sock ...

I liked the Kopper Top every time I've eaten there. That's always been a neato location perched on the hill.

I once went to the fridge and then forgot what for.

San Francisco has a burger place called Hot n' Hunky. Never ate there, but I don't think anyone goes for the food.

Where I live we have Sonic and Whataburger. Both crap.

What I really miss is Fuddruckers. Up in Wisco they have one in Janesville, not too far a drive from Madison. In Florida I don't think they have any.

They grind their beef fresh every day and bake their buns fresh every day too. And they have a giant fixings bar to fix up your burger. On a whole other level from crap like Sonic and Whataburger.


Oh and we just got a Five Guys like Madison did and it really isn't that great. Fuddruckers still rules.

There was a Sonic in my home town in NC back in the 80s. Some of the best damn onion rings I've ever had.

All of the car hops were on roller skates.

Not too familiar with "O-town", what is Kil-tie?

Where Famous Dave's is now, used to be Andy's and before that, an A&W Rootbeer, which also had car hops on roller skates. Circa mid-70s.

Sonic

Postby Villanelle » Wed Apr 23, 2008 9:57 am

There were a few Sonics in the city I previously lived in. The slushies and flurries are great in the summer. I personally like their drinks the best, because you can really as them to make any combination. They have great icecream floats and their lemonberry slush is hard to bead on a warm day.

I have also heard their breakfast tacos are good, but I'm not sure if they serve those at every location.

I'm lucky enough to live near the last remaining Dog N Suds in Wisconsin... Tomahawk, WI.

Chips, in Merrill. Wausau used to have a Chips, too. Back in the day you'd get your meal free if the server neglected to say "Have a Chipperrific day!"
