This, the fourth Sonic Beach restaurant in South Florida, will also create 120 new jobs in the area -- a boon to the Lauderhill economy.

The restaurant, which opens January 14, expands the traditional Sonic Drive-In concept with an outdoor patio, 10 60-inch LED flat screen televisions, a selection of beers and wines, and a beach complete with umbrellas and sand in your toes.

An expanded menu features fast/casual favorites like a Frito chili cheese pie ($2.99); Carolina pulled pork sandwich ($4.79); and Philly cheesesteaks ($5.49). In addition PBR's are $1.50 all day -- every day! Not to mention the limeades, slushies, and shakes available in literally dozens of flavor combinations (call us traditionalists, but we're partial to the cherry limeade).

Sonic Beach opens to the public on January 14 at 11 a.m.; operation hours are Sunday - Thursday 6 a.m. - 1 a.m. and Friday - Saturday 6 a.m. - 2 a.m.
