Has Anyone Tried The New Line Of Hotdogs From Sonic?

Review by 146513 on 2011-03-08
USA -- They look good but are they of the same realm as a Nathan's or other gourmet hot dog places? Even close? Just wondering before I go forking over my hard earned change. Thanks.

When I eat the lips and tips of an animal, I want it to be beef, not those turkey or chicken dogs. If Sonic's are pure beef, I'd venture on over and give them a try.

They claim to be all beef and you are so correct about cheaper brands of hot dogs. Inedible at best!!

All beef can also mean lips, ears, and noses...as long as its 'beef' it can come from any part of the animal.

Not even close man. I'd rather chow down the blue plate special at the Habana Inn than put a sonic wiener in my mouth. That's how I see it.

Personally, I try to stay away from fast foods altogether.
Debtor (if I may call you that) if the beef dog is Kosher then you don't get those parts, just the beef.
Sir Lord, they (Sonic dogs) can't be THAT bad can they?

unless the dogs are kosher, that would leave me out. nathans, and hebrew national are two kosher dogs. nathans do not use a casing, and hebrew national use some type of cellulose casing. the casing on hebrew national is tough and hard to bite through. nathans is very easy to bite and really good.

I prefer the Hebrew National with the casing.
I sear or sometimes deep fry the dog which makes the casing easier to bite through. I hate when the skin is chewy.
I would doubt that Sonic's dogs are Kosher, the cost would be prohibitive and there are those that don't eat Kosher beef for whatever reason.

Though I am NOT a Debtor, you can call me that as long as it is with a capital 'D'.
And I agree about the Kosher dogs, but I was referring to MDS's comment about beef dogs. Hebrew National and Best Kosher dogs are the only ones I buy.

These aren't Kosher but aren't bad. They are available on the west coast.

Do you REALLY thing I'm going to click on any link that has 'Hormel' in it? I think you need to get to know me a little better than that!

They are beef franks that Hormel brands distributes out there, Debtor.
Hormel isn't all bad.
What brands of meat do you eat?

If you want me to puke on you, just keep it up! And I know this is no way to welcome a newbie...but there are some things you'll have to learn....

Just sharing my infinite knowledge of food, Debtor.
You seem a bit uptight are you always like that or just out of Metamucil? j/k
Posted by D. on 2011-03-08:
Metamucil is for old people and I'm only 28.

Does ZZ eat hot dogs?
Posted by D. on 2011-03-08:
Only if the girl serving it whacks him with a potholder when she gives it to him.

He does Momsey?
I may give them a shot. I reside across the street from a gourmet dog place but still haven't gotten used to paying four bucks for ANY kind of dog. I guess it is a geographical thing, huh?

Laquita? Who is that?
Posted by MRM on 2011-03-08:
Oh, sorry, I meant Shaquita, welcome back!
Posted by MRM on 2011-03-08:
Scratch that, Lakisha welcome back!

Been years since I ate at a sonic maybe I'll try it out.
Posted by D. on 2011-03-08:
There ain't no hotdog in this world worth four bucks!!!

Love their banana cream pie shakes. Haven't had one in years though, too fattening
