Review: Sonic - Bacon Cheeseburger Toaster

Sonic Bacon Cheeseburger Toaster
Sonic's Bacon Cheeseburger Toaster features hickory BBQ sauce, a hamburger patty, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, an onion ring, onions, and cheese on two slices of Texas toast. This kitchen sink sandwich will run you about $3.99 for the sandwich or $6.29 for a medium combo.

While Texas toast is nice and all, as a general note, I really wish fast food restaurants would toast their buns closer to making the sandwich so that the toast would actually be crisp and crunch rather than soft. Honestly, I think one of the overlooked selling points of a mom-and-pop burger joint is that they usually make your burger to order and that they grill your bun at the same times as the hamburger patty.

I was surprised at the thick and substantial bacon strips, which stood in stark contrast to the mincy thin bacon most of the major chains serve up.

Unfortunately, the rest of the sandwich was somewhat underwhelming and rather unbalanced. The rather small and thin beef patty was overpowered by the bread, the lettuce, and the sauce. You can see that there's quite a bit of lettuce in the sandwich; less would have been more in this instance.

Also, something was a bit off with the sandwich, the ingredients just didn't mesh well together. The Sister-in-Law thought it was the hickory sauce.

I really like the idea, but found the execution wanting.
