Default We love our Swenson's.

We have Swenson's, about a mile down the road.

Not thousands of them, but a dozen or so. And all busy as can be.

They RUN to your car, and RUN back to get your order in. I guess that might be their gimmick, but also, good food.

For those who don't know, Sonic is the largest still-existing chain of carhop restaurants, with over 3,500 restaurants in the USA...

Carhops are those people you see, mostly in older movies like American Graffiti (1973)... where the waiter or waitress brings the food to your car... Sometimes wearing roller skates...

It's mostly an American phenomenon...

Of course, in the Covid era, it feels much safer to eat in your car than in the restaurant...

From my quick research, it looks like Sonic has kept growing with even more new restaurants in 2021...

This is how Sonic increased sales by $1 billion during the pandemic, according to the drive-in chainís president

Best wishes!
