Sonic is ok and it will add some new food service jobs in the area. No if only Chic Filet comes to town that would be something.

Chic Filet would be great. So would some Waffle Houses. I am sick of the poor service and food quality at Wendys and Burger King as of late. We have no choices in Rochester. Wendys Food quality has become bad. They just do not give a crap. We need more competition. DQ had record sales for the whole USA in Rochester for a month. Rochester is desperate for new places to eat. Wendys and BK are run very poorly in Rochester. Golden Coral had a line around the building last week.

That goes to show you Rochester is starving (no pun intended)for places like that. I agree with you especially about Wendys. Last time I went there, I was VERY disappointed. They cut their portions wnd raised their prices. Time for some new food joints.

Now if they bring a Sizzler here........

Wendy's should install a third window so you can return all the stuff they screw up at the second.

There are enough Sonic commercials on TV - if we have to watch them i'm glad we'll finally have one in the area

Sonics are outside only. No inside seating. In Rochester they would have to close half the year. Unless you like to eat inside your car with the engine running and heat on.

Don Alhart said this one would have indoor seating.

To be fair my dear freind and biggest fan next the CapriceClassic.
Did post something about being banned so he had to start using the name "The Biracial one". Same stupid posts so it must be him.

Problem is, those same slugs at Wendy's and Burger King (and especially the McDonald's on Monroe Ave/Pittsford Plaza) would end up at the new restaurants for $.25/hr more. Same old service in a new venue.

The Pittsford McDonalds is the WORST!They stand there and gab and have no clue how to provide customer service. A close second in the University Ave. KFC where some of the workers have a big time attitude problem. The secret is in the training. If Sonic is smart, they'll properly train the staff to provide quality service.

Bad service equates to bad management. Wendy's food and service has declined rapidly over the years. Don't bother filling out a comment card, they'll NEVER reply. I hate to say it, but some of the ESL service has also started to slip.

Went to Wendy 6 weeks ago and after waiting 15 minutes in the drive up because they were out of Chicken at 5PM I got my sandwich. Got home and no fires and no tomato on my sandwich. Not to mention the Jr cheeseburger with the paper thin meat on the hard bun and the Single Cheese on a real hard old roll. Have not been back. Its time for change in Rochester. Competition will make these places change or go out of business.

Its Pittsford. No young kids have to work. So you get the slugs from the city being bused in on RTS. ESL's service has been going down hill for several years. Moved my accounts to Canandaigua Bank and Summit. They both have great service. I waited in the drive up 25 minutes a few years ago at ESL. I said this is it. Then they screwed up my account on top of it. Citizen bank also has bad service. The management does not give a crap. That is the problem with Wendys.

I heard that Rallys is also coming to Rochester. Looking for a spot in Henrietta. They are on the Thruway Now.

I agree that KFC on University is bad. I was there once and had to wait about 20 mins (Fri at 8:30pm mind you) and I thought there was going to be a fight. McDonald's on E.Ridge is notorious for screwing things up. I got a Big Mac with no meat once, and another time I showed up at about 5:45am for a coffee and after waiting about 5 mins they had the nerve to tell me they were closed (it's a 24hr location)

Notice -- not one white face behind the counter. Just a lot of attitude.

Customers are secondary to texting and chatting with each other. Never a thank you. Guaranteed. Always check your order, accuracy rate is well under 50%. The only thing they work at is being incompetent. We (as a family) will no longer go there.

The WalMarts are just as bad. KFC in Chili also has poor service. The manager at the Gates store also has an attitude like the employees. They know how to run customers out the door for good. I will never go back. Same with Wendys. The employees screw up the orders and the food sucks.

I wonder just how clean the Pittsford McDonalds is. Seems kind of dirty all the time.

Lowes Webster and Henrietta are terrible with customer service, takes forever to check out. Always a big crew of employees behind the service counter doing nothing. Cashiers somewhat snotty.

Chick-Fill-A sucks major D and so does Waffle House. I hate all these southern fast food chains. I mean, I hate all fast food chains, but the southern ones the most. Chick-FIll-A is DISGUSTING and they're run by a bunch of extremist fundamentalists who hate minorities and homosexuals. They can burn for all I care.

Waffle House is the same deal. Last time I stepped foot in one of those redneck shacks I saw them preparing their expired food in a kitchen full of stink bugs. Nasty.

Also, can someone explain to me why this article says "Sonic Drive-Ins Coming to Rochester"? We all know that these Sonics will not be opening anywhere NEAR the City of Rochester. Far from it. Henrietta is NOT Rochester. People in the City of Rochester don't eat f*cking garbage white trash food.
