Sonic Drive-In is in the planning stages for Lockport on Farrell Rd.

I have never tried their burgers but a few years ago when I traveled to Peoria I thought that their concept would be ideal for Lockport's setting. Ironically it is coming.

It's about time. They've only been advertising on the local channels up here for about a year. When I had to go to other branch offices at a previous job, I often went to Peoria or KC, and my favorite spot for a quick lunch was Sonic. The last time we went there tho, down in Missouri, it wasn't that good, but maybe it was just that one.

I never tried their food but the idea of a 50's 60's style drive in is a neat one. There is no dining in, only drive in and park or use the drive through window.

Kelly Pickler of American Idol fame worked as a waitress at a Sonic Drive In franchise and would wait on car using roller skates.

if you're wanting to taste the Illinois interpretation of Sonic...there is one in Aurora Kirk rd and in Countryside on Pulaski.

I can't wait for the lockport one ... the XL Cheese Coneys are good.

The burgers are great.

I just got hired at the Lockport Sonic yesterday. I start today and they open officially on Wednesday, January 12th of 2009. I'm so glad they opened up. If it wasn't for a new business like that opening up I don't think I'd ever find a the way the economy is and I have to pay for school.

I was so excited about Sonic coming to town and but our second experience was HORRIBLE. The person who took my husband's order was short and rude, she made errors, when he tried to correct her, she said "that's what I said" but when he got up to the next window, the errors were still there. We ordered 2 children's meals with bananas and drinks, when he got home, there were no bananas and no drinks - even though he had asked about them and was told they were already in the bag. The grilled cheese sandwiches were not cooked (the cheese wasn't even melted on one of them), and put together very sloppily. All in all a very disappointing experience that we overpaid for.

THERE WAS A LOT OF HOOPLA WHEN SONIC SAID THEY WERE COMING TO LOCKPORT. I SEE THIS PLACE IS ANOTHER DISSAPPOINTMENT TO LOCKPORT.
I AM VERY HAPPY 355 IS HERE BECAUSE OTHER THAN TALLGRASS & PANCHOS THERE ARE NO WORTH WHILE RESTAURANTS HERE IN LOCKPORT. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE A TGIF,LALOS,NICKS SHRIMP,BAKERS SQUARE,CULVERS JUST TO NAME A FEW.

Panchos you got to be kidding. That is the worst mexican food ever. And how could you even compare Sonic to Tall Grass? Fast food to elegant dining. I see you don't get out much.
