Maybe its just me, but why is there a big article on Mlive.com super excited about a Sonic "restaurant" coming here?

I'd personally be more excited about non-chain locally owned eateries and businesses. but call me crazy. did I miss something?

I couldn't agree wit you more Tegan. We seem to get so excited over the latest chain restaurant opening around here. See White Castle, Bar Louie, Famous Dave's. I can't get excited over Sonic.
My favorite local restaurant has got to be Bada West.

I love Badawest.

The best restaurant in town as far as I'm concerned is The Big Eazy. Of course, you have to love seafood Smile

I also couldn't agree more. The only thing sadder than getting excited about more fast food is getting excited about a new Walmart.

I have never eaten at Badawest, but now that I have the recommendation from two people, perhaps I shall try it.

My favorite restaurants are of course La Villa's in Mt Morris, Sam's in Rankin, and Halo Burger. Atlas Coney Island is also a good place for a greasy spoon.

Some folks are crazy for Sonic. I am glad for any new, reputable businesses in the area.

I also would think that any new wage paying business would be welcome in Flint. Is their some kind of litmus test they must pass first???

Sonic has great milk shakes. Their onion rings are good too. I hope they don't insult Flint by serving what they think are coney's.

Tegan, so you've never eaten at a Sonic or Badawest, huh?

Well, two things. Like the others, I agree Badawest has very good middle Eastern food. I highly recommend it. Secondly, I also highly recommend Sonic. Does it warrant the article? I don't know. What surprises me is that so many people are this excited over a restaurant most of them have never dined in before. For the record, I have been to a Sonic before and the atmosphere is better than the food (not that the food's bad).

Oh, wait - there's a third thing. While Atlas is nothing out of the ordinary from any other coney island restaurant, this is by far my favorite. Not just because it's a greasy spoon, either. The best greasy spoon anywhere (for the food) is Starlight. Atlas treats you right and fits all the criteria of a perfect Flint coney island!

The commercials for Sonic are hilarious! That might have a lot of people's attention.

Never eaten at Badawest. I've had Sonic once, but it was a while ago on vacation and I thought it was a regional thing... like Juicy Lucy or Jack in the Box...

I like Atlas because it reminds me of my high school days... we'd go there after shows at the local.
