Branson Blast #10-Sonic Drive-In Review and Giveaway!!




Vacationing with the family is supposed to be a time of relaxation and fun-but sometimes you realize you spent so much time running around doing touristy things that you need a vacation from vacation! It can also be so buy and hectic that you don't always have time for a sit-down meal. Finding good food on-the-go can be a troublesome task, but if you're in Branson, there's no need to worry-you'll find a Sonic Drive-In along the gorgeous Falls Parkway in Branson!









C and I stopped at Sonic for lunch after our tour of the Table Rock Dam. We were quite hungry, and more than ready for a hot, hearty lunch. After pulling into a stall, we perused the menu for a moment.




I ordered the large Jumbo Popcorn Chicken combo with Tater Tots and Dr. Pepper. C ordered a Chili Cheese Dog and Vanilla Coke (her favorite drink order at Sonic!). 
While waiting for the food, we took a minute to enjoy the view. Not many places can boast scenery like this from the Sonic Drive-In!



A carhop came by and brought extra napkins, and condiments (ketchup, ranch dressing, etc.) to us, and soon after, our food was delivered. 
It took some self-restraint, but we were able to wait the 5 minutes it took to drive to our hotel before diving in to the meal. 



Let me tell you, the new Jumbo Popcorn Chicken at Sonic is absolutely delicious! The large was actually too much for me to finish, so I saved the leftovers for late-night snacking. Yes, they tasted great reheated several hours later too! This is probably my new favorite food, and is the meal I will be ordering from now on when I stop at Sonic! Of course, the tater tots were as good as always, and an ice cold Dr. Pepper to wash it all down made this the perfect meal.




In addition to the new Jumbo Popcorn Chicken, Sonic also has another new offering; this time a twist on their Tater Tots. Sweet Potato Tots! I am not a hug fan of sweet potatoes, but these are the perfect blend of sweet and salty. They taste great!




One of my readers will receive a $10.00 gift card to Sonic!!
