“Adapted from the famous Reata restaurant in Fort Worth, TX. Living with a Sonic Drive-In within spitting distance makes our string of 100º summer days a little more bearable. There really is nothing quite like an ice-cold Route 44 cherry limeade to wipe the sweat off your brow and quench your thirst. As our most popular signature drink, the CF Cherry Limeade is always garnished with a maraschino cherry.”
