  Sonic Drive-In
by ATXtraveler

Although the history of this drive in actually dates back to Shawnee, Oklahoma, Texans by far outweigh those Okies in number of customers for Sonic Drive-In.

Sonic was started in 1954 and was originally known as Top-Hat drive in. The owners changed the name to Sonic, since they like to deliver your food "at the speed of sound".

The nice and unique thing about this fast food location is that you do not have to leave your car. A Carhop will deliver your food after you order it over the intercom. Just sit back and relax.

As you drive through small towns in Texas, you will see one of these locations just about everywhere!!

Favorite Dish: The ice in all the drinks is really good... also a Sonic #2 burger!
