Draws Large Crowds
Apparently these crowds are making it difficult for a Bend Blogger to get a Burger at a new Sonic Drive In on Highway 97. The anonymous bendoregonrestaurant.blogspot.com guy finally made it to a car hop spot for a late dinner with his wife. What is it about this fast food chain that's caused Oregonians to lose their minds? At over $4 a gallon gas, people are idling in multiple lines just to reach a carport and be served through the car window. When it gets hot, and it does in Bend, windows will go up, A/Cs will be turned on, and fossil fuels will be burned. And all that mess from the ice filled cups, greasy wrappers and salty sides, piles up inside your car leaving you looking for a trash can. It's just a fast food restaurant. I know, it's shiny and new, like a new toy on Christmas morning, but over time, the chain closest to your house or on your way home from work will become the burger of choice once again.
