Sonic Drive In “Slingers” Review – Nationwide Chain in 46 States


Sonic Drive In "Slingers" ReviewCan’t say who thought of this concept, but naturally the “Mushroom Council” is excited about it.

The idea is to use finely diced mushrooms and seasonings as an extender for beef with a two-fold goal: to make hamburgers juicier and more flavorful, and also to do a bit for the environment – if we’re using less resources for beef, that’s supposed to be a good thing.

Seems like the suggested percentage is ‘shrooms in the 25-30% range.

Boldy going where no chain has gone before, the people at Sonic jumped on this, and are currently offering two different LTO blended burgers which they call “Slingers.”  Bigger than a slider, not as big as a “regular” burger (tho I have strongly suggested they get with that!).

The “Classic” is cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. An upgrade gives you bacon/cheese without the produce. $1.99 and $2.49, respectively.

An affinity for mushrooms came to me quite late in life. I could possibly be a little shy about some of them still.  But I was committed to diving into this for the sake of you, dear reader.

Glad I did. They ARE tastier. They ARE juicier. You can’t see or ‘taste’ anything mushroomy. At least I couldn’t.

I did enjoy them. I would prefer them over most fast food standard burgers. Nice brioche bun, as well. Soft but sturdy, how we like ’em!

So that’s that.  Sonic menu. All items available all day.  (I like their breakfast “toasters” too, and I’ll always go out of my way for tots over fries).

Sonic Breakfast Toaster Review


Sonic Breakfast Toaster ReviewWhen faced with having to resort to a fast food breakfast, I’ll take most anything over the big guys. The Egg McMuffin is assembled in house, but not “cooked,” the formerly toasted muffins are now just warmed, the “Canadian bacon” is flavorless and sliced so thin you can see through it.

I like Sonic, Hardees, and Bojangles for breakfast.   Bojangles has genuine ham real, not fake, not pressed, chopped and formed on their biscuits, Hardee’s biscuit sandwiches are made to order in house, and the Sonic breakfast sandwich, nested between two pieces of Texas toast, is almost always delightful.

I went for the bacon, egg, cheese toaster at Sonic this morning, got the meal, so it came with tots (I’m always all about tots) and a beverage.  There were some downsides.   The tots were cold in the middle, which is weird, since fast food fryers are on automatic times;  I can only think the oil in that fryer hadn’t reached optimum temperature when they made my order.   A plus for the toaster sandwich is it comes double wrapped, in paper first, with one side open, so you can eat on the run without much mess, and then in a foil envelope.

The downside of the foil is the toast that left the restaurant window toasted and crispy, is, if you’re waiting awhile to eat it, becomes somewhat sadly limp from the steam being released in the package.  Like when you order crisp fries to take out in a foam container.

Often, I’m smart enough to remember to poke a hole or two in the packaging to let the steam escape, but didn’t think of it this time.  Nevertheless, the sandwich and tots were mighty tasty.
