In the world of Twin Peaks, Sonic is one of the more popular restaurants in town.
Its location on a busy stretch of downtown Austin means you can expect a good dining experience even if the restaurant is open late at night.
And for that, you’ll need to be prepared to spend a little money.
A couple of bucks extra goes a long way in Austin, so if you’re looking to go all out on a dinner, try one of their signature dishes.
And if you like to go a little lighter, take advantage of their gluten-free menu.
For instance, the menu features a vegetarian option and a vegan option.
(You can find the full list of ingredients and prices on their website.)
In fact, the restaurant has a very healthy menu as well.
There are dishes like the mushroom and mushroom risotto ($7), a fried chicken and mushroom sandwich ($11) and a chili con carne ($13).
And while they’ve been around for nearly a century, Sonic’s owners say they’re looking for new ways to introduce the restaurant to the wider Austin community.
“We don’t want to go back to being just a traditional diner,” said co-owner and chef Michael B. Rinaldi.
“I don’t think it’s an ideal place for people who are into that kind of thing.”
Rinaldo said he’s not just looking for a more upscale experience, either.
He said they want to give people a place to relax and unwind with a delicious meal.
“People are a little tired of a lot of the restaurants that are out there and we want to keep it alive,” he said.
“When we’re in Austin we can’t do a lot for the people who want to come and see it but it’s our dream.”
Rintaro is also happy to take on some of the responsibility.
“It’s an honor for us to be the restaurant that is bringing the Twin Peaks experience to the community,” he told us.
“In Austin we don’t have the same amount of restaurants that do that.
That’s why I decided to do this.
We want to bring the Twin Peak experience to Austin and bring people back to it.”
You can see a sampling of the restaurant’s signature dishes on their menu.
And while the wait time for reservations may be longer than at other Twin Peaks restaurants, they do offer a free weekend brunch for a limited time.
For a little extra, they’ll also have a special event on Saturday.
If you’re a fan of the show, the Rintaros have a ton of items on their kitchen table for your dining pleasure.
You can also check out the restaurant for special events, such as a free BBQ on Saturday and a brunch on Sunday.
You’ll need reservations, which can be made up to two weeks in advance.
Rintarro said that if people want to take advantage, they can bring their own food for a small fee, or they can rent out a table for a night.
You also can reserve your table for free at their restaurant.
If they’re still open on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, they may also have an event on Sunday that’s just as fun.
Rifardo also said that while there’s no reservation requirement, people should be aware of the number of seats.
“You have to know how many people there are,” Rinaldic said.
If that’s not an issue, you can ask them if they can have a table with you.
But if you don’t know how to ask for a table, it’s best to just reserve a table and let them know how much you want.
If your group does want to be there, you have a couple of options: You can bring your own food from home or rent a table.
Rialdi said that they’re also open for dinner at some of their other locations.
But you’ll have to make arrangements with your reservation agent before you can go.
And of course, you won’t have to wait for the restaurant until it opens.
“If you’re coming down to Austin for an event or just want to sit and relax, we are open,” Rintara said.
