This craveable sandwich is available for a limited time, starting December 19 for SONIC App users

SONIC® Drive-In is taking the familiarity of a grilled cheese and elevating it with the new Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese available in both regular and spicy options. This craveable new sandwich was created especially for steak lovers and is available at SONIC locations nationwide starting December 26. SONIC App users can enjoy an early preview beginning December 19.*

The SONIC Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese features grilled steak mixed with grilled onions, topped with crispy bacon, BBQ sauce, and mayo sandwiched between two thick slices of Texas toast layered with melty American cheese. The SONIC Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese is also available in a spicy version that offers zesty cheese sauce and jalapenos in place of BBQ sauce for a spicier sandwich.

“A grilled cheese sandwich is the ultimate comfort food, and our SONIC culinary team has crafted a hearty twist on the wintertime staple with the new Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese,” said Mackenzie Gibson, Vice President of Culinary & Menu Innovation at SONIC. “By combining the ooey, gooey cheesiness of a traditional grilled cheese with deliciously seasoned grilled steak and crispy bacon, we’ve delivered an elevated sandwich and proven once again that SONIC is the go-to destination to satisfy any craving, any time!”
