Based on Oklahoma City, Sonic Drive-In Restaurant is like a step back into the days when drive-ins were all the rage. You don't see many of the mom and pop ones anymore, but Sonic fills that void. They have all of the classic drive-in foods like cheeseburgers and fries, milkshakes and chili cheese dogs. But they also have unique drive-in items like loaded tater tots and frozen slushies. Fun fact, though: Sonic has been around since the 1950s, which is probably why they have the same vibe as the classic drive-ins. Because it is a classic drive-in. It's just made for the masses.
Their menu is so big, especially since they have breakfast now, too. They have signature drinks and meals that are like nothing you'd see in the '50s. But where did Sonic all get started? The owner started out selling milk, then moved to bread because milk was too heavy. But then, he opened a little diner only to soon be sold so he could buy a fast food restaurant. Everything just kind of spiraled from there and turned into the Sonic that we all know and love today. If it weren't for that history, we wouldn't have been blessed with their absolutely delicious corndogs. So thanks, Troy N. Smith Sr! Think you can name all of these Sonic fast food items? Take the quiz to find out!

You don't need to go to the factory to get this cheesecake. Sonic mixes it up with some ice cream so you get the best of both dessert worlds. Cake and ice cream. The cheesecake gives it a bit of a tangy taste, too, which helps to break up the sweetness.
