How many times do you see a commercial for Sonic? For us in the Boston area, there are no Sonic’s to go to. But now there are some in the Massachusetts area. I happened to be passing one in Wilmington so I set my Tom Tom to get me there quickly. Now I can say I had my first Sonic experience.
I can see why restaurant reviewers to back several times before they write their story. In order to be fair, I know I have to go back to Sonic to taste more of their offerings. I am so accustomed to Mc Donald’s, I know what I am doing. Driving into Sonic was interesting you pull into a stall, park and look at the menu which is bigger and with more choices. What to order was a major decision; had it not been snowing, I might have gone for a shake but it wasn’t the day for it.
I stared at the board next to my car looking at the menu. To the left was one menu and if I looked to the right I was being tempted by desserts. Then I saw they were having a special on hot dogs, several varieties to choose from. I did not know how to pay for the food, if the menu took any credit card or just a Sonic card. The menu did not tell me how to pay. But they did tell me how to order!
I pressed the big red button, placed my order and shortly after my order was delivered to my car. Being from New York, I chose the New York hot dog but it really did not taste like the hot dogs I grew up enjoying from the Woodro in Hewlett. The Tatter Tots were a bit too salty and for me and I love salt. Maybe I just prefer fries to tots. I still don’t know if I could have paid by the menu but the nice person who delivered the food to my car took cash or credit cards. I paid by cash and off he went to get me my change.
I pulled out of the stall, found someplace to throw out my trash and off I went. Next time I want to go back when it is nice an sunny and try something else.
What is your favorite food to get when you go to Sonic that I should try the next time I go back?
