Today, SONIC Drive-In introduces the new Queso Burger, featuring a delicious harmony of melty queso and Hatch Green Chiles to make the beloved appetizer the star of a mouthwatering cheeseburger.

The Queso Burger starts with a quarter-pound*, 100% pure beef patty covered in melty cheddar and zesty cheese sauce with Hatch Green Chiles, topped with grilled onions and creamy mayo on a toasted bakery bun.

“We enhanced the comforting flavor of melty queso with the sweet, spicy and smoky flavor of real Hatch Green Chiles to deliver that elusive, satisfying umami in an irresistible burger,” said Scott Uehlein, Vice President of Product Innovation and Development for SONIC. “Queso shouldn’t have to sit on the sidelines – it should be the center of attention – so we’ve added that extra cheesiness directly into this indulgent burger at a great value.”

The Queso Burger is available for a limited time only.
