Food Review: Sonic's Garlic Butter Bacon Burger

By Mike Thayer

Sonic Garlic Butter Bacon Burger
This burger packs some flavor!

If you are a fan of the Sonic Garlic Butter Bacon Burger, you only have until December 26 to enjoy it.  If you have never eaten a Sonic Garlic Butter Burger, you only have until December 26 to become a fan. 

Sonic brought back this fan favorite with some very tasty upgrades on November 1.  Here's the description:

The burger has a perfectly seasoned 100% pure beef patty topped with creamy garlic butter layered between two slices of melty American cheese, with crispy bacon, mayo, and grilled onions piled on a toasted bakery bun.

The cut-away, perfectly layered and balanced, this burger was made with care

The company says the Garlic Butter Bacon Burger is "bliss for garlic and butter lovers alike." Scott Uehlein, an executive chef at Sonic, added that "this year, Sonic has been dedicated to enhancing our burgers by making them meltier and juicier, and we hope our guests enjoy the popular Garlic Butter Bacon Burger."  He continued, "Our culinary team took on this exciting challenge by doubling up the cheesiness and adding even more creamy garlic butter. To top it all off, the Garlic Butter Bacon Burger is stacked on a toasted bakery bun that SONIC guests will love as they satisfy their garlic butter craving!” 

Let me tell you, this burger packs some flavor!  You get the whiff of garlic as you peel back the foil wrapper for the reveal.  In taking that first bite it's butter, garlic, that seasoned beef, crispy bacon, grillled onion, a bit of mayo, the melted cheese and toasted yet 'pillowy' bun all performing a BIG TIME happy burger dance in your mouth.  It's another dose of YUM!  It is indeed a blissful bite and Sonic has done well here in satisfying anyone's garlic butter craving.  This burger flat out rocks!

every ingredient in every bite

I'm giving the Sonic Garlic Butter Bacon Burger 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  With the combo costing me $8.27 for the burger, tots and a Cherry Limeade, this is most definitely a repeat buy, but I'll have to do it before this limited time offer concludes on December 26!


5 stars
