Just got done stuffing my face with Sonic goodness. Double bacon cheezeyburger w/ fries, popcorn chicken with ranch dip, and cold, clean milk to wash it all down. Aaaaahhhh, good, greasy 'Merkin food, the kind of stuff that made this country great.

Serially, I work third shift, so come 6 AM, I want dinner, but everyplace is serving breakfast. You can only eat so much eggs & home fries before you crave a good, greasy burger and fries. I'd seen a Sonic & meant to try them some day.

So then, jonesin for a burger, stop in, and...



And the rest, as they say, is history. Now, stuffed with cheap, greasy food & quaffing brewskis, I'm posting on Arf as to the goodness that is Sonic. Even had one of their disgusting footlong chili cheeze dawgs the other day, which was just as greasy.

Thank you, God, for saving my egg-ravaged taste buds!

You should know that the meat in that double cheeseburger is full of pink slime and brine. It's really no better than dogfood.

Aaahhh, now that's good 'Merkin food...

Serially, all this folderal about pink slime is much ado about nothing. Basically, it's hamburger; just a little more finely ground. Been eating it for years.

They're one of the few fast food places (that I know of) where you can get a cheeseburger for breakfast.

Jack in the Box is the other that I can think of.


I like them, but the local one did something I didn't think was possible.

Got one of their burgers served cooked to Medium doneness.

Didn't think that was possible with a patty that thin.

Sonic was started less than a mile from where I'm sitting right now, longtime business in this area, a neighbor who was an attorney did a lot of their early legal work and was a major investor in the company. His family still owns several franchises, several are right here in Shawnee where it all started back in the 50's.

I have always loved Sonic. Yeah it's greasy but it just adds to the flavor. My husband can't stand their burgers but he does like the popcorn chicken. I like to dip everything in their merinera and ranch.

The ones we have here are putrid.

They do not change the cooking oils frequently enough....the tater tots / fries are the worse.

Sonic burgers suck balls. There should never be more onion than meat on a burger .

Fries - BK is better. Burgers - anything is better. Shakes -McD's is better. McFlurry is orders of magnitude better than any Sonic Blast I've had. At one time Sonic had Peanut Butter shakes, which were crazy awesome. Since the local ones stopped serving those, I haven't been in months, maybe a year or more actually.

It's been many years since my last trip to Chi-town (memory fading....), but I fell in love with them. If anything is different, the ones I had in Chicago use a slightly better quality meat. The rest is pretty much the same. It's a very good reproduction.

I've been to several other places around that serve 'Chicago style' dogs and they all sucked.

Here in the Sonic Capital of the World, the Sonics are VERY hit and miss. The one nearest my house is fantastic and regularly serves me cheeseburgers that are as good as Smashburger or Fuddruckers. The Sonic nearest to where I work serves luke-warm burgers with what feels and tastes like 3-day old buns.

I'm a big Sonic fan and have been since the 70's but I don't see them going in a positive direction.

Sonic is only good for drinks and shakes. At that, they excel.

Everything else is varying degrees of suck.

And I am from OK.

Guess their tots are good.

Having originated in OK, there is a Sonic on every corner. Drive the backroads of the state, come across a dead/dying town with a population of 100. They'll have a Sonic. Guaranteed.

I have to agree about the onions but I don't like onions on my burgers. I get mine with mustard and pickle only and I always get tots instead of fries.

I wish they would bring back the chocolate cream pie shake. That was the best.
