How big are the meals? if they are small then $15 is crazy, but if they are large then maybe $15 would be acceptable but include free drink refills unless you already do that.

 

A Super Sonic Cheese burger is bigger then McDonalds sandwiches, and has way more flavor.. a large fry or Tots is pretty big, but not as big as a mcdonalds large fry... large drinks are larger then mcdonalds large drinks.. so technically you get more food, with a better taste.. similar meals at McDonalds would cost me $13ish so the price difference isn't that much

^ Exactly the same.

 

One has egg, the other doesn't. correction -- McMuffin uses Canadian bacon.

 

Holy heart attack -- the sausage biscuit has Sodium 1080mg !!!

Shouldn't it be the "Dollar & More Menu"

 

I know that both are correct, but to be more truthful(from a corporation - yeah right :D )

Should name it 'value menu'.

 

I can just hear the complaints now --- "It says Dollar menu !".

Sonic does have much better food (at least in my area, sounds like in your's too). It's worth the money to me. McDonald's food has almost no taste.

This is why I order Jimmy John's instead.

 

 

Jimmy Johns is pricey too.

 

$5 bucks for a SLIM 1 (Bread, Ham, 1 piece of cheese)?  Yikes.

What in the world did you order to get that high? My family owns a sonic franchise, and out here you can get two of the Super sonic burger meals with rings and tots large size for $15 The average "large" mean is around $6.39, your franchisers must want higher profit margins


Two double cheese burgers. One with regular tots. One with cheese tots. With soda. And an onion ring. Plus tax

Ahh ok. Yeah sometimes I want a burger that's really good. Five guys isn't local. Yet. Sonic is. They're Much better then McDonald's and Burger King.

KFC for the win. The Bacon Cheese Onion chicken burger from mcdonalds is alright, most of the burgers are a bit horrible regardless of what mcdonalds you go but KFC is by far the king, chicken is just amazing.  If i wanted a decent burger here in the UK from a fast food place it has to be Burger King all the way. The whopper is so nice. Nice big chunks of tomato and onions modest amount of sauce which is good :D

 

There could be a good thing with this in that the cheap products could start costing so much it would be cheaper to eat healthier at home
