Drive-in restaurant chain Sonic said in April 2014 that it plans a major expansion over the next decade, when it hopes to open 1,000 new eateries across the country. However, while Long Island is no stranger to fast-food chains, attempts by developers to build Sonic restaurants in the region have not gone too well. In East Meadow, a Sonic plan ultimately failed, while a recent judge's dismissal of the Town of Smithtown's barring of a Sonic developer leaves the future of a Nesconset drive-in up in the air. So we thought we'd put the question to you.

With Sonic aiming to expand, would you like to see more drive-ins on Long Island? Let us know in our poll below.
