Lawton Is Home To The Best Sonic In The World
Yesterday, Critter and I took full advantage of one of our favorite annual feasts... Dollar hot dog day at Sonic. As we sat there chowing down, we had a small chat about how weird it is that one particular Sonic restaurant is hands-down better than all the others. We think most everyone agrees.
While not everyone in the nation grew up with a local Sonic in their hometown, it won't be long until there's a Sonic Drive-In somewhere in all fifty states. That's saying a lot since the Oklahoma original drive-in didn't expand beyond the Central Great Plains until the 20-teens. Still, I'm pretty confident in saying the Lee Boulevard is probably the best Sonic location in the world.
Let's admit it... If I were to say "I'm headed to the good Sonic," you'd know where I was going here in Lawton. It's even more curious when you remember, it's been like this for years. Four total Sonic locations in town, and the "good" one has always been on Lee.
You would think the title bestowed upon that specific store would change to other locations once in a while. With the average fast-food employment turnover rate, there's no explanation for how the food and drinks have always been hot, fresh, fast, and on point. As carhops and managers come and go, you would think the service would fluctuate up and down, but it never waivers. How is that possible?
There must be some real superstar people in charge at the Lee Boulevard location. The corndogs and grilled cheese are never chewy, the drinks never taste "off," and they always have Frito chili pie.
Then again, in a town that also has a "good" McDonald's, Whataburger, Wayne's, Walmart, and Taco Bell... I guess it's not that weird. It just shows the power of good leadership and how a positive attitude can immediately affect everyone around you.
