A widely known drive-in fast food chain is getting ready to open in Somerset, and to honor the occasion, it's offering a preview for locals. Sonic, most notable for its neon-colored slushes and array of burgers and dogs, opens tomorrow at 707 Grand Army Hwy.
Until 7 p.m. today, this new location is offering customers a chance to sample such delicacies as the "watermelon slush with rainbow candy" and the superSONIC double bacon cheeseburger.
Visitors can swing by Sonic and provide a password (noted on the drive-in's Facebook page) to get an early taste of these prime menu items. Sonic previously announced plans to bring dozens of new locations to the region, showering New England in vibrant slushes.
Sonic in Somerset will hold its grand opening on April 13 at 10 a.m., according to Masslive. In addition to the classic burgers and hot dogs, Sonic serves a selection of sides, ranging from tots and fries to onion rings and something called "Ched ‘R' Peppers."
