Steak Butter Bacon Cheeseburger

This is the newest introduction to the Sonic burger menu and is already a fan favorite.

The Steak Butter Bacon Cheeseburger features a 100% beef patty topped with crispy bacon, American cheese, grilled onion, mayonnaise, and a steakhouse seasoned butter.

Depending on your preference, you can add tomatoes, pickles, lettuce, jalapeno peppers, and even chili.

We can’t get enough of the steakhouse-seasoned butter, and we love this burger as is.

If there is anything we will add to this mouth-watering Sonic burger is some tomato slices and lettuce.

The Sonic Steak Butter Bacon Cheeseburger has 980 calories with 39g of protein, 52g of carbohydrates, and 66g of fat.

Chophouse Cheeseburger

If you love your burger with some crispiness, we recommend the Sonic Chophouse Cheeseburger.

The fried onion strings with the Chophouse aioli and the soft brioche bun play very well together with the juicy burger patty and melted cheese slice.

You have the option to add ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard to your burger.

And if you want to make it a bit more indulgent, you can add bacon, diced onion, jalapeno peppers, lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes to your Chophouse Cheeseburger.

A little secret to making this burger even more fantastic is adding Sonic’s Signature sauce or BBQ sauce.

The original Chophouse Cheeseburger has 980 calories with 32g of protein, 57g of carbohydrates, and 69g of fat.

SONIC Cheeseburger

This new SONIC Cheeseburger is everything you wish forΒ­ – a juicy burger patty, melted American cheese slice, diced onion, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, and mayonnaise.

If you’re not a mayo fan, you can always switch to mustard or the fancy honey mustard instead.

We love the simplicity of this burger as it strikes a perfect balance between the burger patty and the fresh vegetables.

Having said that, we do love to add some shredded cheddar cheese and chili to make this a more hearty burger.

The SONIC Cheeseburger has 720 calories with 31g of protein, 52g of carbohydrates, and 42g of fat.

Plain SONIC Cheeseburger

This is the burger for those who like to keep it simple.

What could be more classic than a single patty topped with American cheese on a burger bun?

If you’re looking for a delicious burger without any frills, this is the one for you.

Unfortunately, you cannot add other toppings to the Plain SONIC Cheeseburger.

The good thing is that you can choose your sauces from ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard.

You also have the option to try out Sonic’s Signature sauce, BBQ sauce, or Honey Mustard sauce.

The Plain SONIC Cheeseburger only contains 650 calories, with 30g of protein, 48g of carbohydrates, and 36g of fat.

Quarter Pound Double Cheeseburger

Sometimes one patty just isn’t enough, and that’s where the Quarter Pound Double Cheeseburger comes in.

This burger features two quarter-pound beef patties, each topped with American cheese and served on a toasted bun.

It’s the perfect burger for those who like big and juicy burgers.

Complete with two junior patties, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, mustard, and pickles over a hamburger bun, this burger is a meal on its own.

But if you want a more balanced burger, add tomatoes, lettuce, and diced onions to give it a bit more crunch.

If you want the lowest calories burger on the Sonic burger menu, you’ll be happy to know that the Quarter Pound Double Cheeseburger has 560 calories with 26g of protein, 34g of carbohydrates, and 35g of fat.

SuperSONIC Double Cheeseburger

If you find the Quarter Pounder junior patties to be a little thin for your appetite, we highly suggest boosting up to the SuperSONIC Double Cheeseburger.

This burger takes everything great about the Quarter Pound Double Cheeseburger and kicks it up a notch.

In addition to two quarter-pound beef patties and American cheese, this burger includes tomatoes, pickles, lettuce, and diced onions.

It’s big, it’s bold, and it’s sure to satisfy your hunger.

If you wish for a classic Sonic experience, we suggest switching the ketchup for Sonic’s Signature sauce.

With the double full-size burger patties, the SuperSONIC Double Cheeseburger packs in 1070 calories with 53g of protein, 54g of carbohydrates, and 71g of fat.

SuperSONIC Bacon Double Cheeseburger

This burger features all of the same great ingredients as the SuperSONIC Double Cheeseburger, but with the added bonus of bacon!

This burger is for you if you’re looking for a delicious way to get your bacon fix.

And if you love chili, you’re in for a special experience where you can ask for chili on top of your patties.
