Since 1953, Sonic Drive-In has been a fast-food destination for burgers, hot dogs, and refreshing beverages like slushes. Whether you’re craving a classic Sonic Cheeseburger, a crispy order of Tater Tots or a Sonic Blast, I’m sharing the menu prices on the entire menu in 2023. If you’re interested in saving money, I also share Sonic’s happy hour deals and explain how to get half off drinks / slushes (for real!).

Secret Menu

Have you tried Totchos yet on the secret menu?

Sonic has one of the biggest secret menus out there. Some of these options are unofficial items not listed on their regular menu boards that you need to find out about on social media. Other items are menu hacks that have gained a cult following among Sonic enthusiasts who enjoy customizing their orders and exploring unique flavor combinations. Here are some popular secret menu items to try during your next visit.

1. Pink Flamingo. This is a vibrant and fruity drink that combines Sprite, Powerade, and lemonade. The result is a bright pink beverage that’s both visually appealing and deliciously sweet.

2. Frito Pie. This is a Tex-Mex-inspired secret menu item that transforms Sonic’s regular chili cheese tots or fries into a Frito pie. It typically includes a generous serving of Sonic’s chili and cheese sauce, topped with Fritos corn chips for added crunch.

3. Grilled Cheese. Sonic is primarily known for its burgers, but if you’re in the mood for a cheesy delight without the meat, you can order a grilled cheese sandwich from the secret menu. It features melted American cheese sandwiched between two slices of toasted Texas toast.

4. Neapolitan Shake. If you’re having trouble deciding between Sonic’s classic shake flavors, you can ask for a Neapolitan shake. It combines chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors into one delightful frozen treat.

5. Purple Sprite. This secret menu item is a fun twist on Sonic’s signature cherry limeade. Instead of the traditional cherry syrup, it’s made with grape syrup, giving it a distinct purple color and a grape-flavored twist.

6. Tater Tot Nachos (AKA Totchos). If you’re a fan of loaded nachos, you’ll love this secret menu item. Sonic’s tater tots are topped with cheese, chili, jalapenos, onions, and any other nacho toppings you desire, creating a delicious and indulgent snack.

Remember, not all of the secret menu items are not officially endorsed by Sonic and may not be available at all locations.

Happy Hour Deals

You can get half-price shakes during happy hour.

Sonic’s Happy Hour takes place from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM or 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, depending on the location. It’s important to note that these hours may vary by region or franchise so check ahead before you go.

During Sonic’s Happy Hour, they offer half-price shakes. This means that you can enjoy a wide variety of their signature shakes for $2.49 below full price on a hand-mixed medium shake. Sonic is well-known for its extensive shake menu, offering classic flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, as well as unique options such as Oreo Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Fudge, and more. The half-price shake deal applies to all shake sizes, allowing customers to indulge in their favorite frozen treats at a more affordable price.

While Sonic’s Happy Hour includes various deals and discounts, half-price burgers are not typically part of this promotion. Sonic does offer other burger specials throughout the week, such as their “Two Can Dine” and “Carhop Classic” deals.

These promotions often provide discounted combo meals, allowing customers to enjoy a burger, fries, and a drink at a reduced price. It’s always a good idea to check with your local Sonic for specific burger promotions available in your area. However, according to their website, they recently offered a limited half-price discount as a reward on their SuperSONIC® Double Cheeseburger (ended June 13).

To get even more exclusive deals like these texted to you can text DRIVEIN to 876642 for more savings. The best deals change regularly so this is a fantastic way to stay on top on offers.

Half Priced Drinks and Slushes

You can get half-priced drinks and slushes at any time when you order online or through the app. Why pay full price for a Coke, Dr. Pepper, or Sprite when you don’t need to? If you usually order a large drink at Sonic this will save you $1.54 on each transaction moving forward.

Another bonus you need to be aware of is that you can order half-price Sonic cheeseburgers at 5 p.m. every Tuesday when you order online or thorough the app. This deal automatically applies when you make the order. This will save you $2.79 every time you take advantage of this weekly deal.

What is on the Under $2 Crave Menu?

Save money on your cravings with Sonic.

Sadly, this $2 and under deal ended in March 2023. This limited-time menu included 3 items: Jr. Cheeseburger with an all-beef patty, cheese, pickles, and condiments on a toasted bun. You could also order a FRITOS Chili Cheese Jr. Wrap with FRITOS corn chips, chili, and melted cheese wrapped in a tortilla. To finish on a high note, you could get a desert of Sweet Minis sundaes with OREO Cookies & Chocolate and SNICKERS Bars & Caramel, each under 250 calories.

What items are 2 for $5?

This iconic fast-food titan is unveiling a whole new 2 for $5 value menu that’s absolutely stuffed with delish deals for those of you on a budget. Here’s are the 2 items you can order for a Lincoln:

  • Duo of Grilled Cheese Burgers
  • Pair of Small Jumbo Popcorn Chicken
  • Two Regular Fritos Chili Cheese Wraps
  • A combo of Regular Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap and Grilled Cheese Burger
  • Small Jumbo Popcorn Chicken and Grilled Cheese Burger, side by side
  • Regular Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap paired with Small Jumbo Popcorn Chicken

A quick heads up — this deal only applies if you purchase both items together.

If you’re craving for Sonic but don’t want to break the bank, you can go for their Under $2/$3/$4 Menu which is still a great deal any way you look at it.

What are the newest drinks at Sonic?

Sprite > Add Strawberries > Add Vanilla.

Summer is finally here and what better way to beat the heat than with a refreshing drink from Sonic? The famous fast-food chain has just released its newest addition to its menu, the Strawberry Snowball Slush Float. This beverage mixes the classic Sonic slush with an ice cream float.

Along with this new drink, Sonic in partnership with Paramount+, recently released a drink inspired by the premiere of the new original series, “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies”. This unique beverage is created by blending cherry and vanilla flavors with Sprite, then topping it with sweet cream. Head over to your nearest Sonic and try these new refreshing beverages out for yourself.

What kind of tater tots does Sonic have?

Tater tots.

When it comes to tater tots, Sonic has a wide variety of options to satisfy any craving. Well, for starters, their classic tater tots are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, perfect for dipping into your favorite sauce. For those looking for a little extra flavor, Sonic offers chili cheese tots, loaded with their famous chili and a generous serving of warm melted cheese. And for a unique twist, try their totchos, a combination of tater tots and nachos topped with cheese sauce, jalapeños, and other tasty toppings.

They also offer “loaded” tots that come with all sorts of delicious toppings like melty cheese, crispy bacon, chili, onions, and zesty jalapenos – a perfect combination of savory and spicy. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more intense, Sonic’s Extreme Tots are the way to go. Piled high with cheese sauce, onions, jalepeños, and bacon, these tots are not for the faint of heart. No matter what kind of tater tots you prefer, Sonic’s got you covered.
