    These aren’t bad … but they taste more like salt than anything.

    • MP says:

      Only 1940mg of sodium. Which is only 81% of your daily recommended dosage.

      I was surprised to see they had a Chicago-style dog, which is only 2310mg (96.25%) sodium. The pickle, relish, sport peppers & celery salt is what drives that up.

    • KTK says:

      The 1940mg of salt in the one they have pictured say your taste buds are right. .. and that’s not even the saltiest dog they have. 😐

    Ehhh… I hate Sonic. I like their concept… but their food is just not good. And the commercials with the 2 guys makes me want to vomit.
    Buuuuut, you can’t beat half price.

    The hot dog Sonic uses is a little weird in taste and texture. I love a chili dog though but I make more appetizing ones at home using canned chili and beef hot dogs. And 54 grams of fat?!! That’s pretty crazy.

    Damn I was considering taking up this offer until I read all the nutrition info. I’d rather make chili dogs at home with turkey and have leftovers than deal with this.

    I’d eat 2-3 of these in a sitting! Yes I’m a right fat bastard and damn proud of it!

    • Chubs says:

      Just because you’re “overweight” doesn’t mean you’re automatically more unhealthy than a thin person, but what you’re doing by consuming that much sodium/fat/calories/etc in one sitting is not being a jolly fat guy. It’s suicidal behavior. Seriously. I mean this: seek help. It’s one thing to occasional enjoy fast food, but another to use it as a means of self-harm.

      You give our kind a bad name.
      Sincerely,

  6. I really only eat their onion rings and drink their Limeade. Decent restaurant, just way too many items on the menu to go through.

  7. Kelly says:

    They changed their footlong about 2 years ago. It has a kind if metal taste even with the chili and cheese. When they first opened in lake Zurich Illinois they were great but I noticed the change and its not good. Poor quality. I’d have one a week if they would get a better dog.

  8. Justin says:

    You can see it in the picture, why is the cheese on their coney dogs always kind of rubbery? Chili cheese dogs are one of the few things I can actually make at home better than what I can buy somewhere.
