Grand Forks might soon be home to a Sonic Drive-In and people are freaking out.
I’ve never had the privilege of trying anything there, but I hear rave reviews about their burgers, hot dogs and their more than 398,000 fountain drink and slush combinations available, like slushes, limeades and something they call “ocean water (“blue…with a hint of coconut”).
One of the developers told Forum Communications that they expect to have a Sonic in Grand Forks within the next “three to four years,” according to the article.
Now burgers are great and all, but the draw for me is their selection of encased meats like the Footlong Quarter Pound Coney dog or the Chicago Dog. I’ve had some real Chicago-style dogs in Chicago, so I’ll be interested to see if theirs stacks up.
Sonic offers sides like (gimme some of your) tots including chili cheese tots, onion rings, “Ched R’ Peppers,” mozzarella sticks and fries.
So are you excited at the prospect of Grand Forks getting a Sonic? Disgusted? Want an extra order of Chili Cheese Fries with that behemoth-sized cup filled to the brim with a mix of every fountain soda available?
