SONIC: "Not Your Average Fast-Food Joint!" Dallas Restaurant Tip by picklegirl

Dallas Restaurants: 252 reviews and 234 photos

Meanwhile, on the complete OPPOSITE scale of Bob' Sonic, a real drive-in!! Sonic is a chain fast-food joint located in the South. (WHY can't they gravitate to the Northeast?? Please? I beg of them!!)

Here's the deal:
Every parking space has a menu board. Decide what you'd like and press a button to order. Within minutes, your food is delivered to your window (if you're lucky, you may get a deliverer on rollerskates!) If you're not in a car, there are also outdoor tables with menu boards.

The restaurants get packed on Tuesday when it's "1/2 price burger night"!

Favorite Dish: Wow....where to start?!

* Chili/cheese foot long dogs
* Burgers, burgers, burgers of course....
* Grilled cheese
* CORNDOGS (a hot dog dipped in corn
batter and served on a stick.)
* Pancakes on sticks served all day.
* FRITO PIES....."Frito" corn chips, topped with chili and melted cheese. Quite an odd concoction if you ask me! I just had to try one!

*....and last but not least......their famous Limeades. Choose original, strawberry, or cherry; they're all great. It a lime beverage with really strawberry pieces or cherries throw in. If you'd perfer something more caffeniated, order a Coca-Cola with an "add-in"..(a squirt of watermelon, chocolate or vanilla flavoring).

Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: ALL over!!! Drive in any 5 mile radius, and you're bound to come across 10!! In Texas, it seems there are more Sonic's than McDonalds. Go, go, go I say! Your arteries will thank you for it! ;-) LOL
Price: less than US$10
