Food Review: Sonic Chicago Dog

I am not much of a hot dog eater, but occasionally, a hot dog just sounds good. Since Sonic started airing the commercials for their new premium hot dogs, I have been craving one...especially the Chicago Dog!

On Monday mornings, Will and I meet some friends to walk. So, we met our friends this morning and had a fun time walking and chatting just like usual. On the way home, I started thinking about how hungry I was and how we had absolutely nothing for me to eat at home. I also thought about how I should really go to the grocery store, but decided to put it off until tomorrow (I'm a really good procrastinator!). I started thinking about something quick and cheap I could pick up on my way home. I quickly went through the list of fast food places I would pass on the way to my house, and the answer was clear. Today was the day to finally try the Sonic Chicago Dog!

I was not disappointed! Yum, yum, yum! The Chicago Dog has an all beef hot dog, a pickle spear, sweet pickle relish, tomato, sport peppers, celery salt and mustard all put together in a poppy seed bun. Absolutely delicious!

See, in my opinion, a hot dog is all about the toppings, and the toppings are what make this one so yummy. I ate my pickle spear separately, as it was a little difficult to eat with it actually on the hot dog. Everything else worked so well together, and the celery salt gave it a little something extra. I think I will try to find some celery salt to add to things I make at home. It added a really great flavor, and I think it would be great on all kinds of things! Not only did the hot dog taste great, it only cost me $1.99 (plus tax, of course)!

I was very pleased with my decision to stop and try Sonic's Chicago Dog today. I think their other hot dogs look good, too, but I'm not sure I want to try any of them after having this one. This won't be something I eat all the time for multiple reasons (I don't eat out very often; it's not the healthiest meal; I just don't eat hot dogs that much), but it was definitely a nice treat, and I would definitely eat it again.

So, if you're in the mood for a hot dog, you should stop by Sonic and try one of their new premium hot dog selections. And, of course, Sonic (or anyone else for that matter) did not pay me to write this. It is simply my opinion. If Sonic would like to pay me for this, I would be more than happy to accept their offer, :). I would even settle for free drinks for life.
