Sonic, Non-Hedgehog, Comes To OSU!

Gah! Just what I need--more temptations to eat terrible "food" at two in morning!

Soon, students can add another restaurant to their checklist of places to eat. A new Sonic Drive-In is under construction on Olentangy River Road, and will open its doors 6 a.m. Oct. 27.

Sonic is a drive-in food chain where customers can pull up to a parking spot, choose their meal at an order station and have a bell-hop in roller skates bring each order on a tray.There is also a drive-thru and patio seating.

At the new location, the drive-in has been customized to represent an OSU atmosphere. Hillwertz said the structure's support poles are usually painted green, but are scarlet to represent OSU colors. Instead of yellow, red and blue alternating outfits, employees wear a scarlet shirt and an official OSU hat.

The new Sonic will be open from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. every day. Hillwertz said the store may eventually be open 24 hours, but it depends on how busy the new location become.
