Review: Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger from Sonic
Sonic says, “The best flavors of a steakhouse now on your burger!” It’s a bold statement, but there are many bold statements in fast food marketing. “Steakhouse Flavor In Every Bite” is another. Let’s review the new Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger from Sonic.Sonic describes their new Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger like this:
Bakery quality Brioche bun layered with a quarter pound 100% pure beef patty, Natural Cheddar Cheese, Crispy Bacon, Grilled Onions and topped with a Smokey Black Pepper Mayo. Try with Medium Tots for only $4.99!
Forget the hopes of a steakhouse experience in between a bun and one component of the ingredients and you’ve got a solid fast food burger.Most everything about the Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger worked for me. The impressive chew of the brioche bun against the hearty quarter pound beef patty combined with the sticky melt of the American cheese hit a satisfying mark. Just the right portion of savory grilled onions mixed with the flavorful smoky black pepper mayo provided for the right flavor balance to be worthy of the “Steakhouse” name.
Every bite of the Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger where I avoided a piece of the awful bacon was a good bite. The chew toy bacon completely throws off the harmony of the textures of everything else. The same can be said about the salt when it came to the flavor balance. Halfway through the original Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger experience, this became the Steakhouse Cheeseburger for me and it was very good. Bacon does not make everything better when it comes to the Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger from Sonic. At a price of $4.99, I wouldn’t have been surprised if all I got was the burger, but the $4.99 price comes with medium tots. What’s the upcharge for adding bacon to a burger? If money could be saved by removing the bacon, this experience would’ve been a 8/10. Bad bacon, lose a point.
Pros: Works well as the Steakhouse Cheeseburger. Great bun. Good size, solid value. Includes medium Tots.
Cons: Bacon doesn't make everything better.
