Guests looking to satisfy their BBQuriousity can savor SONIC’s new take on totchos (also known as tot nachos) with Pulled Pork BBQ Totchos – crispy tots transformed into a BBQ delight, topped with tender pulled pork and cherrywood smoke sauce. A craveable twist on SONIC’s beloved tots, they are perfect for a hearty afternoon snack or alongside the Pulled Pork BBQ Cheeseburger. Pulled Pork BBQ Totchos are priced starting at $3.39 + tax.

“The passion for barbeque among our guests fueled the drive to put our own spin on these craveable favorites,” said Mackenzie Gibson, Vice President of Culinary & Menu Innovation at SONIC. “We’re always pushing the boundaries and finding new ways to take fan-favorite items, like our cheeseburgers and tots, to the next level. These new items are a harmony of BBQ’s best flavors, proving BBQ really does make everything better.”

No barbeque is complete without something refreshing to wash down all that smoky flavor. Fans can now quench their thirst with SONIC’s new take on the viral “Dirty Drinks.” Whether rounding out a meal or grabbing a midday pick-me-up, soda sippers and connoisseurs can “Make It Dirty” by adding the sweet flavors of coconut, cream and lime to their favorite beverage.* As the Ultimate Drink Stop®, SONIC has thousands of unique drink options for guests to customize, including this new trendy combination.

*Add-ins cost extra; guests can “Make It Dirty” for an additional $1.30.
