Sonic Says It Will Open Oct. 16 In Ellicott City

The new Sonic on Rte 40 in Ellicott City will open on October 16, according to a Facebook post spotted by Adam.

This is on Rte 40 west of Rte 29.  It's definitely a joint with a loyal following.  Adam says he will aim for opening day:
I plan to be there. It's overrated, yes, but it's been a few years since I reminded myself of that.  Where else are you going to get a corn dog, tots, and a shake all at the same time without ever leaving for car?
The Sonic has been two-and-a-half years in the making.  The first report was May 2012 by Wordbones.  It may be a while before I can try the shakes -- which Mrs. HowChow says are the highlight -- but I'll pour a little out for Wordbones.

I don't think they are overrated. Sonic is a drive-in from yesteryear. Just remember that. Gourmet, it is not. The shakes are great!

Definitely overrated. The last thing rt 40 needs is another junky fast food place.

Funny. I thought the last thing Route 40 was a Korean bakery. But really junk it isn't. Even the rebuilt McDonald's has some swag :)

I love the slushes, over 100,000 different drink combinations!

We went to the new Sonic in Ellicott City on 10/18/14(Saturday). The place is right next to a Goodwill store. They shoehorned that place into the location – the layout is really bad. There are only a few (maybe 8) spots to sit in your car to order food and eat. There is a tiny indoor area to order food and eat. We got a seat inside to eat, and people waiting in line to order food were literally standing in our faces while we ate. That was not very pleasant. The drive-thru line was really long.

I highly doubt that we will go back to this Sonic again.
