SONIC Drive-In is now in South Orange County looking a little different after passing a few stepford regulations imposed by the City of Mission Viejo. Although the exterior isn’t traditional, they’re serving the same food by carhops on roller skates. I LOVE that about SONIC — It’s nostalgic and fun.
Although SONIC has been around for more than 50 years and has over 3,500 locations, I had yet to pass one during my travels, until its appearance in Mission Viejo just over two weeks ago. This was my first visit. You can consider the items below as potential prizes in the $25 on the 25th SONIC Gift Card Giveaway.
These days all fast food restaurants are working to serve healthy choices. SONIC is serving a Grilled Chicken Sandwich on a Wheat Bun — It was one of the better ones I’ve tried. We also appreciated the Fresh Apples with the Low Fat Caramel Dipping Sauce and a Banana as a Side option. On their website is an itemized calorie meal builder, which can be helpful too.
A few of us gathered to try a lot of food and were happy to learn that Breakfast is served all day long. The Texas Toast options are different — We chose the Bacon Cheeseburger Toaster, which comes with an Onion Ring.
And we had to get the Tots, since that’s one of the Sides they’re appreciated for. The Tots were perfectly crispy, but we really liked the Onion Rings that are freshly battered each day. They’re not frozen — That’s a good thing.
We were completely stuffed after the Sausage Biscuit Dippers & Gravy, Frito Chili Cheese Pie Wrap, Turtle Pecan & Caramel Bundt Cake and famous Cherry Limeade (aka giant Shirley Temple). In addition to what’s pictured here, there was more and we particularly loved the Banana Cream Pie Shake. SONIC’s Drink options are crazy good. How can you pick one? We all left with three each, HA. It appears many will drive for miles to eat at a SONIC. One pictured below drove all the way from Connecticut. Okay, she didn’t drive to California just for it, but she did pass many along the way.
Overall, I found SONIC Drive-In to be more than just a fast food restaurant. It’s a fun experience. You can sit on the patio or stay in your car parked in one of the Drive-In stalls, to be served by a skating carhop — Or just drive through. They have a Happy Hour (2-4 PM), $1 Menu and more, but you’ll need to learn the rest from them.
