Contra Costa gets its first Sonic Drive-In

The car hops are rolling, and customers are packing the place for chili dogs, burgers, tater tots, limeade and slushes.

Sonic Drive-In, founded in Oklahoma back in 1953, may have more than 3,500 restaurants in the United States, but the company is just getting around to Contra Costa County.

The county’s first has opened in Pittsburg at 1600 N. Park Road near Loveridge Road.

The fast-food chain’s culture harkens back to the 1950s. Car hops, some on roller skates, deliver food orders directly to patrons’ cars. And the name Sonic refers to the company’s original slogan, “Service with the Speed of Sound.”

Specials abound at Sonic. Every Tuesday night is half-price cheeseburger night, and the Carhop Classic offers a burger (Quarter Pound Double Cheeseburger or Classic Signature Slinger) plus medium tots for $2.99. For a limited time, customers who order ahead with the Sonic app will get half-price drinks and slushes all day long.

This is the fifth Sonic in the Bay Area proper. Alameda County’s is in Hayward, Santa Clara County’s got one in Gilroy, Solano County has a Vacaville location and there’s one in American Canyon in south Napa County.
