By the end of the 1950s, most of the American economy could be driven through, whether it was an eatery, movie theatre, or maternity ward. Hearken back to that golden age with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of drive-in eats and treats at Sonic. Choose from six locations listed in the sidebar.
Sonic Drive-in boasts a hunger-obliterating menu of burgers, coneys, shakes, and more—all delivered straight to your horseless carriage by gracefully roller-skating carhops. Settle burger-craving stomachs with a supersonic cheeseburger ($4.19), and craft a creative meal out of sides like mozzarella sticks (five for $2.99), chili cheese tots ($2.59), ched' r' peppers' ($2.99), and onion rings ($2.19/large), which, like engagement rings, symbolize love and taste better dipped in ketchup. Cleanse your crumb-covered palate with a Sonic signature limeade ($2.09/medium) or a slush ($1.89/medium) in any combo of classic flavors like cherry, grape, watermelon, orange, or quantum particle, which tastes like everything yet strangely nothing. Once you've ordered from the comfy confines of your car or decommissioned lunar module, your all-American feast will arrive balanced atop the head of your roller-butler just in time to catch you tearfully singing along to "Forever Young." Customers are welcome to feast in their cars or savor their selections on Sonic's outdoor patio.
- Now here’s a great fast food restaurant. Sonic is one of my very favorite places to go to get a burger and onion rings. – gjacks, Epinions
- SONIC is without a doubt my first choice when Im in the mood for a burger. My favorite is what I always order,#1 with cheese-hold the pickles and onions. I add an order of Sonic's famous Onion Rings and Im in heaven. – macndeb, Epinions
