Same here, Ray! I reviewed the one at Springhurst when it first opened, and judged it pretty good for a chain. The servers on skates made it kind of cool. :oops:

Ray, back to your hamburger thing, "blended burgers" (blends of beef and mushrooms, with the idea of stretching the nation's beef supply for both health and sustainability reasons) are a big thing. The James Beard Foundation is pushing the idea heavily with its Blended Burger Project:

It's been a very long time since I've had a Sonic hamburger (I get a drink or a shake every once in a while), but apart from the ecological impact, I would guess that adding mushrooms to relatively flavorless beef would be an improvement.

Considering most of the metro Sonics have disappeared, I'm not sure why they're trying to keep current.

I think they shuttered the one on Shelbyville Road recently, didn't they? The only one remaining near me is the Hurstbourne location, and the food is so mediocre I rarely visit. I miss the old days at WKU when the Sonic on the bypass had half-price everything on the menu nights every once in a while. The burgers were good too.

I was down on the far south side recently and noticed there's still a Sonic on Preston Hwy outside the Gene Snyder.
