It's about time! Now I won't have to drive to Fort Wayne for my grape slush fix - it'll be right in my back yard!

I now live in Lansing but a year ago i lived in AZ... I had a sonic in my back yard...I would climb the fence (BRICK WALL)and i was in the parking lot.. It was great for a little bit... But then it's like Mc Donalds, Burger King, Jack In The Box...They all taste like poop after eating it for so long... But in a good note it IS bringing JOBS to Mi!!!!

I am so excited. My husband is from Texas, where you can find a Sonic on every corner. I can't wait for a Diet Cherry Limeade or an Oceanwater!!

What was the Portage Planning Commission thinking? It is absolutely awful to drive on Romence Road where this Sonic is located. Between the automobiles backing up traffic attempting to turn right into the accident or the automobiles take a left hand turn (blocking both lanes of eastbound Romence)if there has not been an accident yet, there will be.
With hope that the hype with this restuarant dies down soon before a person in an automobile or pedestrian dies. For a hamburger or slush?

quite frankly I like sonic. I have lived in this area for my entire life, and I have never heard such a bunch of bitching about a something new. If you dont like this place then just don't go and shut up about it.
