Best Happy Hour: Sonic Drive-In
When you're looking for a cool drink for an after-work happy hour, readers agree that Sonic is the place to go. They voted Sonic Drive-In the best happy hour in the 2013 Best of the Best competition.
"People love our drinks because we put more syrup in our drinks than anybody else, so they taste sweeter, and they're better," general manager Carmen Wood said.
From 2 to 4 p.m., all three Sonic Drive-Ins are packed with people there to enjoy a tasty beverage, maybe adding a shot of cherry or vanilla syrup to their soda to give it a little more sweetness.
Customers also like the large cups drinks are served in and the type of ice Sonic uses in their beverages, Wood said.
Wood said it feels good to be acknowledged the best by their customers.
"It feels good to know we are No. 1 during happy hour, and we can tell because we're always busy. It's a lot of fun though," she said. "It's neat to know that Victoria likes us and likes what we do that much."
