I do like the flavor combination of beef and mushrooms.
I've liked the burgers with mushrooms and cheese that I have tried before, but not sure I'd like them as much with
the mushrooms ground and blended in as I do when they're a topping.

Yes mushrooms are fine with some melted cheddar or swiss atop my burger but I dont want them blended in.

Don't know, I've never tried it. Only cheddar or swiss? I like both especially swiss, but blue cheese too!

I've never eaten at Sonic, so doubt I'll get the chance to try their blended burger without going well out of my way.
When someone mentioned their Chicago dog as a favorite I wanted to try that too.

Their burgers weren't all that great to begin with either..

I would only stop for their cherry limeade. I hope they havent changed that.

i just read your average hamburger you buy at fast food / grocery has 100+ head mixed together.

ddd75 that is no different than a tube package of ground beef bought at the grocery store. As long as we the producers do our job on our end and the packer does their job correctly I see 100 people that got paid thanks to that with no problems. Do you think a box of chicken nuggets come from one chicken?

the first time I ate at sonic was when we went to the Graham school for cattlemen and sonic was right on our way from the hotel to the school so we ate there for breakfast and dinner almost every day that week! I've never had so much fast food before

Those two jackazz's that do the TV ads for Sonic make me want to eat somewhere else!

i don't see a problem with it either and I figured it'd be around 20 / cows a burger but i wasn't thinking 100. I found it interesting is all.

My burgers are made up of 1 cow and I don't eat nuggets or fast food, so I have NO problem with it. :mrgreen:

Only reason I go to sonic is the drinks especially during happy hour or some cheese sticks. Local burger joints are better.

I always thought so as well, but the last 2 times I tried one, each was so salty I couldn't finish either.
I'm not sure what they changed..or whether it was in the wiener or in the chili

May be, I haven't had one in a good while. Another place that used to have really good chili cheese dogs was Checkers. I don't know the range of Checkers franchises, if they're in other states or not, they're scattered around in Georgia and I haven't been to one in several years. Checkers also had milkshakes as good as any I've ever had anywhere.

May be too salty now, I haven't had one in a good while. Another place that used to have really good chili cheese dogs was Checkers.
