The very first restaurant to bear the Sonic name was right here on Main Street in Stillwater! Opened in 1959, Sonic offered "Service with the Speed of Sound" with drive-in stalls, intercom ordering and roller-skating car hops. Locals and visitors alike flocked to this hotspot for the ever-popular cherry limeades, chili-cheese coneys, tater tots and ice cream treats.

The restaurant itself was remodeled in 2015 but the original sign still stands as a testament to the storied past of this iconic chain of over 3,500 locations that all began here. The remodeled location includes a large, covered patio that seats 31 as well as an outdoor fire feature and three large-screen TVs for customers' enjoyment.

Stop by when you're in town for refreshing drinks that can be customized in a myriad of ways, served over the famous Sonic ice, burgers, hot dogs, fries, onion rings and all kinds of scrumptious treats. You can even take a photo with the first Sonic sign!
