I've been seeing commercials for Sonic for years even though the closest one to us was 70 miles away. I heard their marketing strategy is to imprint the brand in your subconscious so if you are ever traveling and see one you'll want to try it. This also works for if one eventually opens near your house - all the hype has already been built up so they have very little work to do to get you to the store.
Then about 6 months ago not one but TWO Sonics opened within 15 minutes of our house. Score! A few weekends ago we went to one for a quick burger fix. We'd been once before about a month before the recent visit and I was mad that I'd forgotten my camera. This time I brought it along and got a shot of my cheeseburger:
Just look at that glistening, greasy bun. Their burgers are delicious but I shudder to think of how unhealthy they are. I got a combo that included the burger and fries:
I also got a cherry limeade, which is perfect for cutting the buttery, fatty goodness. I love eating in the car with the windows rolled down. Such a fun summer treat.
