See it's not a craving, it's about what they have. People are curious about the taste of the unknown (for many). When I went to Panera Bread for the first time when I was out of state, I was curious. After tasting it I realized that it was nothing special and was overpriced. It was along the same lines as a Starbucks. Teenagers think that if you're holding a Starbucks cup, you are projecting a certain image to onlookers and now PB is also in that category. If it was a good cup of coffee i'd understand but it is bitter crap. Back to Sonic; after one or two times people might return but it wont be crazy the way it is now. Now it's a novelty, 6 months later it will be another option as a fast food choice and nothing else.

I would suggest you may want to indulge in a little self reflection prior to casting aspersions.

Anyone been there yet? Reviews? What do you all recommend I try on my first visit (which probably won't happen until June, I want to wait till the mad rush dies down a bit)?

Give it another week or 2 but what I remember from the past were that the drinks were very good and the tater tots.

Well some of us are food experts for all cuisine. We just don't frequent the fast food places.

Ok, I had to drive up DPA today (not by choice) and went past the Sonic. At first I thought the line didn't look that bad, until I realized it wrapped down the street for five blocks. That's ridunculous!!!!! Not that I'm someone to measure patience by; I wouldn't wait on line to cash in a Mega Millions ticket. It would probably be quicker to drive to the next nearest Sonic in NJ somewhere and come back than wait on that long a line for a hot dog with a pickle.

Sonics isn't in the same class as In-n-Out, 5 Guys, Cheeburger Cheeburger or even Wendy's. It's not that it's bad but it isn't a big deal.

Now Chick-fil-a is something to get excited about.

Yeah, I have yet to meet any restaurant that was good enough to wait more than one drink at the bar for a table. I don't care the exclusivity or the rarity of the cuisine, it all concludes with the same result.
