What does SONIC® do in the winter?
Same as all the other franchises do, but better! We stay open all winter long.
Do the carhops skate in the winter?
Yes! Carhops will skate in the winter as long as conditions are safe.
Can you eat at a Sonic of CT year round?
Of course! We are mainly no different than other quick serve restaurants. Only our Milford and Bristol locations have indoor seating, but our Wallingford and Manchester stores offer a great heated, covered, wind screened patio that is open year round.
If we do not want to go in line at the drive-thru but want to bring food home can we use the drive-up stalls?
Of course. Many customers with multiple people in the car use the stalls. This way you are not rushed. It is like having multiple drive-thrus.
What do you recommend on the Sonic of CT menu?
One of everything (two cherry limeades).
Will you have roller skaters or roller bladers at Sonic of CT Drive-in?
Yes, absolutely! Our friendly carhops, as they are called, will be bringing you your food on roller skates or roller blades and taking special care of you. When you are done eating, they will even come and get your SONIC® trash and dispose of it for you if you would like. All you have to do is let them know.
Are there kids meals?
The best! They are called Wacky Packs®. With your choice of 5 entrees, sides such as bananas, applesauce and drinks such as orange juice, 1% milk (white or chocolate) or any of our 398,929 drink combinations, we have more selections then most (And don't forget the toys!)
Will there be something special for the kids besides the cool skaters?
We usually have SONIC® balloons available and on select days we have give aways. Check our calendar for events.
What about dogs or pets?
(Please see question 06: What do I recommend?) Really, we always have a treat for fido. Dogs or pets, unfortunately, are not allowed on the patio. We may have fido ice cream treats soon.
What are the times of breakfast, lunch and dinner?
There are none! We are the only quick serve restaurant that serves the whole menu the whole day! If you want a SuperSONIC® burger at 7am or French Toast sticks at 5pm, no problem!
What are the busiest times at SONIC®?
SONIC® is always very busy, but the peak times are 11:00 am - 1:30 pm and 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm.
Can we come to SONIC® just for desserts?
Of course! 35 % of our customers will visit us just for dessert!
Does SONIC® have a value menu?
Yes, and there are many selections from breakfast burritos to burgers to sundaes.
How does SONIC® prices compare to others?
SONIC® is very price sensitive. We have money saving combos, value items and feel we have some of the lower prices in the industry.
What is the story on your world famous onion rings?
They are the awesome! Hand made, one at a time, with special ingredients. A lot of time and effort go into making each batch. They are made from real, whole onions.
Do you teach carhops to skate?
No, but we teach skaters to carhop!!
