Breakfast at Sonic?

The ever-in-the-know Wendy Leung (I have to be nice to her…she’s within striking distance tonight) has informed us via her RCNow blog that Sonic, 11370 Fourth St., will open tomorrow (June 9) at 6 a.m.

That makes sense.

When I drove by on Friday, it looked like they were ready to open. In fact, it was kind of hard to tell that they weren’t already open, other than the lack of cars in the car-hop stalls.

The first 25 customers will get a free T-shirt.

Also, on their Web site, they’re advertising that if you buy a shake, you can either get a second shake for free or get a coupon for a free shake on a later visit. This deal is good through June 27.

I wouldn’t recommend having a shake for breakfast, though. Not unless they can toss some French toast sticks in before they blend it.

    Yay! Except this couldn’t come at a worse time – I am in the middle of a fitness and eating right kick. Hmmm I’ll have to see if I can find the calorie content of their yummy slushies and tots!

    You could probably splurge on a shake once every other month or so…

    In case you haven’t found it, Sonic’s surprisingly complex, yet simple-to-use nutrition guide is here:

    You can use it to build a meal and see how many calories are in it. It also breaks down each item into its components and gives you the nutrition for each component as well as the total for the item. Kinda cool in a geeky sort of way.
