*I received compensation in the form of a gift card to try out Sonic’s Lil’ Grillers, so that I could experience them for myself to write this review.*
Sonic has a new group of snack sandwiches available! The new snack sandwiches are called Lil’ Grillers and they are perfect for a quick snack on the go! I couldn’t wait to give these a try, but the day I was going, someone apparently decided our Sonic needed to have a drive through kitchen area, so they were closed for a few days making repairs. I was happy to see “Open” on the marquee so I could finally check the Lil’ Grillers out.
Once I pulled in, I had no trouble locating the Lil’ Grillers part of the menu:
Sonic’s Lil’ Grillers certainly put a spin on the classic grilled cheese! They come in five different styles including: Lil’ Cheese Griller, Lil’ Chickie Griller, Lil’ Patty Griller, and two Lil’ Breakfast Grillers with your choice of Bacon & Egg or Sausage & Egg. These range in price, locally, from .79-$1.49 each.
“Our menu offers great options to can satisfy any appetite at any time, from a mid-morning snack to a full meal and dessert at night,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development at SONIC. “With our new Lil’ Grillers, we hope to appeal to all snackers at a terrific value while also giving a new twist to a classic comfort food like Grilled Cheese.”
I decided to try a variety and ordered both Lil’ Breakfast Grillers and a Lil’ Chickie Griller.
(Note: I also got a chili cheese fries as well.)
I was surprised by the amount of filling in each of these. Let’s start with the Lil’ Chickie Griller. This sandwich contains a Chicken Strip with Cheese & Buffalo Sauce, served on mini sourdough bread. I loved the flavor, as well as not ever biting into the sandwich and only getting a mouthful of bread. The Chicken Strip covered the entire surface of the bread, and then some!
I’m absolutely going back on a breakfast run after tasting both the Lil’ Breakfast Grillers! These were the first breakfast sandwiches that I’ve had that have not been overwhelmed with the taste of bread, meaning you could actually taste the sausage or bacon, egg and cheese!
So if you’ve not tried them yet, hop on into your local Sonic and give them a try! You can follow Sonic on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube so you’ll find out about great new specials and other news.
