Route 7 in Latham Lands a Sonic Drive-In

The Capital Region’s first ever Sonic Drive-In now has a location!  The fast food chain has been rumored to hit the Albany area for almost a year.  Latham was pegged to sport the eatery but an actual address hadn’t been given – until today.  See where Sonic is going to open up this Spring.

Sonic is about to land in Latham!  The 3,500+ drive-in fast food chain is going to be built on Route 7.   The address is 701 Troy-Schenectady Road, formerly Kings Buffet.

The closest Sonic to Albany is most likely in Wappingers Falls – over an hour South.  The new location should bring plenty of buzz here.  Unlike current, local fast food eateries, Sonic has a variety of hot dogs, ice cream sundaes, French toast sticks, chili cheese fries and tots to name a few.  Who doesn’t love tots?

My explanation can’t do the full menu justice.  Take a look at those hot dogs.  I can’t wait to down a foot-long, quarter pound weighing, chili-covered, cheese-havin’, Coney dog.

Slushies.  They have SLUSHIES!

According to the Times Union, the Latham location is going to have a Drive-in parking lot and orders will be delivered to parked cars.  Food being delivered to me?  Is it Spring yet?  I’ve already made up my mind – here will be my very first order when Sonic opens on Route 7 in Latham:

1 Coney dog.

1 order boneless BBQ wings

1 order of Cheese Tots

1 Powerade slushie

1 Strawberry Lemonade 

1 Snickers ice cream with waffle cone!

What will your first order be?
