Sonic! No, not the hedgehog, America’s Drive-In.
Since 1953 Sonic has been “America’s Drive-In” and I can give you three reasons why: mozzarella sticks that make you forget that anything exists besides you and the awe-inspiring combination of cheese and breading that you are putting into your mouth, breakfast all day, Texas toast, slush floats (insert the flavor of your liking, mine is bubblegum), crispy tots, extra-long chili cheese coneys… whoops that was more than three. It’s easy to get carried away when describing the awesomeness that is Sonic.
The food is cheap, service is fast, and carhops still bring your food out to your car (some still wear roller skates).You see, another reason why Sonic holds a dear place in my heart is that my first job ever was a Carhop at the local sonic in my neighborhood. The pay is terrible! Sonic doesn’t have to pay the carhops minimum wage because they’re considered waiters/waitresses and since it’s a fast food joint, NO ONE ever tips! Needless to say, I only lasted like a couple of weeks, mainly because I’m clumsy and mixing roller skates with carrying drinks, it’s just not a good combination for me (I fell TWICE… with DRINKS!)
So the next time you’re in the mood for delicious fast food, go to Sonic and tip the carhops! Plus, you can even take home a toy for your cats! Yes, Sonic mints easily become a cat’s plaything (well at least for my cat, Couples :)
