    Finally, their commercials will actually have some sort of relevance in our area….I was getting tired of seeing those damn things only to find out I had to drive 123 miles to Heath, OH…the closest location.

    Why do they do that????!!!!!??? I have to drive even further than that and they flood the tv with commercials in NY like they’re just up the street and around the corner.

    Five Guys has the best fast food burgers in town. Nothing better than a burger from Five Guy and a some fries with cheese and 40oz of Old English from the dirty O.

    Forget Sonic.

    If you haven’t had anything from Sonic, you have no idea how good it is. No. Idea. The chili dogs? I’m drooling already…

    Mr. Wind Up Bird, why would you get your burger from 5 Guys and your fries from the O. That is just silly. 5 Guys have excellent fries, which actually come in human (large human, but human) size portions. Why not just get them there?

    And second, why would you compare 5 guys to Sonic? It sounds like you have never had Sonic, because that comparison is apples and oranges, my friend.

    Frozen cherry lime-ade and tater tots, come to me.

    the best burgers anywhere, ever, are “in’n’out” burgers, but sadly, they’re only found out west…an “in’n’out” burger joint here in pittsburgh would kill…

    I’m a big fan of Bar Louie’s $1 burger night on Tuesday’s down at the waterfront…thought, price doesn’t include drinks. Luckily, it also falls on nine dollar beer night…I’m not familiar with In n Out, and its been forever since I’ve been at a Sonic….do they grill the burghers to order? Or are they more like McDonald’s in that respect?

    Ugh…5 Guys? OVERRATED. You can’t throw a midget, err…”little person”, down here in DC without hitting 2 of their stores. They’ve been rated “best burgers in DC” for like 10 years running, which just tells you how crap-tacular the food is here.

    With the proliferation of Sonics around the Pittsburgh area, we’re guaranteed to keep that Most Livable ranking for years to come. In fact, they might have to just start a seperate list just for us.

    Now, all we need is an IHOP, and we’ll be set. I’m all for one in Cranberry.

    Sonic does provide good eatin’ …. but any half-wit Yihnzer knows it’s worth the parking hassle to drag his sorry bumm to Bloomfield for a burger at Tessaro’s. Ain’t no better anywhere. And that’s what makes the ‘burgh (specifically the east end’s Bloomfield-Lawrenceville-Friendship)the hands-down most liveable spot.

    SysCruncher – rejoice with me, they’re coming. Supposedly.

    Until then, Pamela’s mmmmmmmmm.

    Sonic’s burgers blow.
    The Chili Dog rocks
    Their drinks are good
    Shakes & Malts are good too.
    But the burgers really blow. Oh and every time I go to one I see tater tots and all I can think of is that GD movie Napolian Dynamite… My kid drives me Nuckin Futz with that line every time we go there…..

    One other thing bugs me about the place……. It used to be ketchup wasn’t an option there for anything besides Frys? Whats that all about?

    When you’re a freshman at college in Texas putting on the Freshman 15, Sonic burgers really come in handy.

    Yes everything is made to order. The Pittsburgh Mills site has been confirmed, and the franchisee plans to break ground soon. We are super excited to serve the Pittsburgh market. The franchisee is a native of the area and tells me he is getting a ton of positive feedback from virtually everyone he encounters. Please keep posting your thoughts on the food and the location.
