Retro-outfitted servers deliver burgers, malts and sandwiches to your car at this '50s-style drive-in chain.. In Short Founded in 1953 as a hamburger-and-root-beer stand, this nostalgic eatery is known for its intercom ordering system and roller-skating carhops. While servers rarely roller skate anymore, the famous made-to-order, all-beef burgers and thick malts are still menu favorites. Other signature items include Toaster sandwiches (made with thick Texas toast), extra-long chili and cheese hot dogs and hand-battered onion rings and tater tots. Desserts include chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shakes and fresh fruit slushes.
Sonic is Super.
Sonic was retro before retro was the thing. They just keep doing it -- and doing it right. Delicious burgers with no end of toppings. Service is excellent at every Sonic I've stopped at, from Bowling Green, Kentucky to Houston, Texas and right here at home in Memphis. Drive on in to the nearest Sonic Drive-in and you will NOT be disappointed.
