The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Eat patriotically with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of classic American drive-in fare at Sonic. Choose from 18 locations.
The roller-skating staff at Sonic presents fresh American fare, ranging from coney dogs to hamburgers to onion rings. After ordering off the menu from inside their vehicle, customers can wrap their jowls around the Sonic burger's simmering quarter-pound beef patty, which comes nestled in a warm bun ($3.29). Tasty add-ons include crispy, handmade onion rings ($1.99–$2.49), chili-cheese tots ($2.29–$3.19), and mozzarella sticks ($2.99), which easily substitute as fake microphones when entertaining fellow traffic-jammed drivers with Top 40 sing-alongs. Banana splits satisfy sweet teeth with a freshly peeled spear of fruit cooling under real ice cream and scrumptious toppings ($3.69). The Sonic Blast rockets diners toward sugary bliss with a blend of ice cream and M&M's, Reese’s peanut-butter cups, Oreo cookies, Butterfingers, or Snickers ($3.29–$3.79).
