SONIC Creates New Mesquite Butter Bacon Cheeseburger

SONIC® Drive-In puts its own spin on the distinct, slow-burned flavor of Mesquite barbecue and sears rich, indulgent butter into the burger to create its newest menu item: the Mesquite Butter Bacon Cheeseburger.

At $4.99*, the Mesquite Butter Bacon Cheeseburger begins with a griddled, 100% pure beef quarter-pound** burger seared with a dollop of smoky mesquite butter and glazed with tangy BBQ sauce, and is topped with crispy bacon, two slices of melted American cheese, lettuce, grilled onions and pickles, all on a toasted brioche bun.

“In every bite, tangy BBQ sauce takes on a sultry-sweet twist as the nuanced smokiness of Mesquite barbecue joins forces with smooth, melty butter to elevate the classic cheeseburger with a medley of flavors you can’t find at any other drive-thru or drive-in,” said Scott Uehlein, Vice President of Product Innovation and Development for SONIC. “The Mesquite Butter Bacon Cheeseburger satisfies a unique, mouthwatering experience with a Southwestern twist.”
