There just aren't enough Sonic's near my house ... in fact, the closest one is more than an hour away ... and that's just not fair. I mean, we see many, many Sonic commercials ... commercials that tease us ... sure, they're not really that funny, but the food looks fantastic. Plus, Sonic harkens back to the days of drive-in diners - you can pull your car up, place an order, and eat the food right in your car ... I think some Sonic waitresses even have roller skates.
But, getting back to the commercials - I remember seeing a Sonic commercial that featured "happy-hours" in which their fountain sodas, drinks and slushies are all 50% off ... before I went to Sonic, I didn't understand what all the hub-bub was. After trying one of these fountain drinks, I fully appreciate the "happy hour" concept. No, there is no alcohol in the drinks ... but they are SO GOOD. The happy hours run from 2-4 pm, which isn't really optimal "bar" happy hour time, BUT, maybe you can stop there and get a fountain drink before you head to the bar ... just a suggestion.
My favorite fountain drinks include - Lemon, Watermelon, and Pineapple ... I also like the slushes (of course, who doesn't!). The real fruit slushes are my favorite, although I'll drink any of these.
