    Checkers! Its a nice drive from the Cliffs to Paterson, but worth it. I keep seeing ads about Sonic on TV, but have yet to see one. Are they any good?

    McDonald's sucks, by the way.

    Sonic is awesome.
    Great onion rings, great chili cheese coneys, and you gotta try the cherry limeade.

    I used to drive almost an hour to the closest Sonic, but the finally put one closer to home. Sadly, I don't make it there as often as I would like.

    Wendy's always takes for-EVER where I live. Not as bad as Dunkin Donuts though.

    Sonic isn't a drive-thru though, it is a drive in.

    Yep, I was responding to The Double's question about Sonic.

    My personal favorite drive-thru is Chik-fil-a. Great chicken sandwiches and great lemonade. Wendy's is a close second.

    Jack In The Box in 5th must be some sort of sick and twisted joke. I have yet to go to Jack In The Crack and spend less than ten minutes on the drive-thru. Wendy's here is pretty quick, I'd definitely give the nod to them. Some Sonic here in Texas have a drive-thru now and it's a lot quicker because the drive-thru orders are timed, the drive-in not. We don't have checkers here anymore, but we got a Culver's and man, that stuff is good. We also have Whataburger, which is known as Slowaburger among my friends and is good if you like food poisoning. I never got into Chick-Fil-A, their chicken sandwiches are so plain and their nuggets kinda small. It would be worth it for the waffle fries.

    Here in Salt Lake, we like to go to Apollo Burger. They are a local chain owned by a Greek family and have several locations, one of them just a mile from my home.

    I usually get the job of going down to get food for the family. They have quite a diverse menu and a typical order for our family might be a Gyro Platter, Fish Dinner, Pastrami Burger Combo, and a Chile Verde Burrito, with several soft drinks and/or shakes.

    All of their food is good, they have a reasonably efficient drive-through and they haven't made a mistake in one of our orders yet.
