Sonic Drive-In Shakes

Northern Virginia may soon have its first Sonic Drive-In. The closest location is currently in south Stafford near Fredericksburg.

A web ad posted on and passed around social media on Tuesday suggests a restaurant will be opening in the Manassas area. The ad is for a “Sonic Drive in General Manager.”

An InsideNoVa reader reports seeing a sign for Sonic at the old Burger King near the corner of Balls Ford and Sudley roads. According to the county's online records, there are no active permits at that site.

InsideNoVa readers frequently site Sonic as a fast-food restaurant they'd like to see in the area.

We'll update this page as information is available.

There is a sign for Sonic at the old Burger King in front of Home Depot/Ashley Furniture


I sure would like us to have a Sonic in PWC but that would be so far to the west.


I was just there not even 15 minutes ago. There was no sign for Sonic at that location!
