Sonic Drive-In officially announced the grand opening of their newest locally owned restaurant location at 331 Main Street in Benton, Kentucky. Early rumors and speculation produced high anticipation throughout development, resulting in an opening day franchisees dream about. With fifteen plus car-hop stalls, including additional parking for outdoor dining, Sonic was ready. Sonic Benton celebrated their opening with an all day happy hour, give-a-ways, gift cards, including local WCBL-FM(Benton) support.

Sonic's vision is simple: to become America’s most loved restaurant brand. What once was a small hamburger and root beer stand named Top Hat Drive-In has grown to become America’s drive-in with more than 3,500 locations coast to coast.

SONIC's award-winning menu offers a variety of unique menu items made after you order. Menu items include TOASTER® Sandwiches (made with thick Texas toast), Footlong Quarter Pound Coneys, handmade Onion Rings that are sliced, breaded and cooked fresh daily, Tots and a plethora of drink and dessert choices, such as our signature Cherry Limeades, featuring a sweet touch of cherry to a delicious lime thirst quencher. With the addition of freshly brewed Green Iced Tea and five new flavor mix-ins, SONIC now has more than 1 million drink combinations, making it Your Ultimate Drink Stop! - SONIC®
