Sonic in New Jersey

Sometime last year Sonic moved into New Jersey. I didn't go because the location was quite far from me. Recently 2 more locations opened up fairly close. I went to one last Sunday and was turned away because of the crowds. I've never seen anything like it. Four uniformed policemen directing traffic! And from what I've heard and read, it's always like this. I talked to one of the cops as well as a friend of mine who was lucky to grab a spot as someone was leaving. Both said the burgers are very similar to Wendy's. If so, I'd just as soon go to Wendy's. I know there is the novelty and curiosity factors, but these locations have been open for weeks and there's lines every day with most being turned away. It can't be worth the hype.

What are some opinions of Sonic? Similar to Wendy's? How are their hot dogs? Anyone know the brand? Thanks.
