Sonic Drive In

Recommended Posts

Thanks the metro is a whole lot closer than driving to Kentucky.

There is one in Sioux Falls. Right next to Sportsmens Warehouse.

OH BOY do I love Sonic haha- no better than Culvers, but their drinks absolutely make them. When we visit TX we pretty much stop at one in each town to fill up on Cherry Limeade (and I wonder why I'm chubby.... *sigh*) I think I've seen at least 1 up in the Cities, as I think they're starting to realize they work up here with a drive-thru. Barneys in Waseca is still holding on- they just close each winter and have the drive-in style, and they are oh-so delicious so I stop each time I head through town (Usually to blow money I don't have at Cabelas smile

I think the novelty is starting to wear off. The "staging" area only had about 12 cars waiting and there where about 20 people waiting in line. This was about 7:30 last night!

The real novelty in the TCs as far as a new place to get food was Kripsy Kreme when they opened. They had lines 5 miles long waiting, THAT was crazy.

Shoreview still has an A&W drive-in on Rice Street, I lived down the street from it. They close in the winter and sell Christmas trees there.

Is that A&w a drive in. Hudson had one years ago, Oh how I miss it. I stopped in at one of those walk in A&W and my jaw hit the floor when I saw the prices.

I remember the lines and the Krispy Kreme close to where Sonic is now. It's now close and a Wendy's. Crazes can be short lived.

Was going to go to Sonic last night. Got there at 5:15 and was a half hour wait. No way I'm waiting that long for fast food. I'll stop by another time.

My best Pizza Burger is at the Big Boy in Bismarck ND. MMMMMM, pizza burger flying style. Can't beat it. Usually buy a few when I'm home and bring them back to the cities with me.

Funny grin

The one in ER during lunch today is looking almost done. Very intresting building. Besides the "drive in lanes", it will have a drive threw window also. Does the one in St. Paul have this? I thought the true Sonics do not have a drive threw window????

Also it might look like some inside seating going on also.

Yea, same setup Josh. I think it's for better service in the winter when no one wants to use the drive in.

My wife and I did the walk up service on sunday evening. I purchased a chili cheese coney and strawberry cream shake. She had chili fries and cheeseburger. The shake was good, but the rest of the food was subpar. We waited about 15 minutes. It would be better to have someone take your order face to face rather the dinks taking your order from the microphone machine. The staging area is odd, you have to get a pass to come up to the drive up? There is a drive through and drive up and park service. I won't be back for a while till it slows down, maybe i'll try the breakfast sometime.

    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
    • Dave's next grill op smoker! 🙄  😝
