Review: Sonic's four new 100% beef hotdogs

I need to be honest, i really do not like hot dogs very much. They tend to give me a headache. Anyways when I went to sonic the other day I saw they had a new line of premium beef hotdogs so I had to give them all a shot. I am going to go over all four of them and tell you how they are.

The Safe one
First up: Chili Cheese Dog

This one is fairly simple. Just Chili and Cheese on a hot dog. Sonic has been doing these for years and they are pretty good at it. The bun is nice and soft, the chili is meaty and has a nice consistency, and the cheese is rich and melty. The hot dogs are what I am not a fan of. They are way to salty and lack the flavor of a real pork hotdog. thankfully you barley taste them so it doesn't really effect this one.

Rating- 3/5 "It's Meh"

The Boring One
Next: The All American Dog

This dog is even more simple. It is just ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, and onions. Again, the bun was soft, but the hot dog way too salty. Unfortunately on this one you noticed how salty it was because the lack of condiments. The relish was also a bit too sweet for my taste but to each his own. Anyways I honestly could make a better dog at home, so I cannot really recommend this one.

2/5- "It's Not Worth It"

The Surprising one
Now: The Chicago Dog

The Chicago Dog is the most complex of the four. It is a hot dog with a pickle spear, relish, tomato, sport peppers, celery salt, and mustard. It was also the most surprising. I really enjoyed this hot dog. The vegetables were all really fresh and had lots of flavor to them. They also gave the hot dog a nice crunch to it. The flavor of the pickle spear and the pepper came through as well. The poppyseed bun was more dense then the other buns and made this the most hearty of all the dogs.
The Let Down

Rating 4/5- "It's Just Swell"

Finally: The New York Dog

Topped with Brown Mustard, Sauerkraut and Grilled Onions, this dog had the most potential. Unfortunately it was also the biggest let down. The mustard was flavorless, the onions soggy, and the sauerkraut tasted like artificial coconut covered in salt. This one definitely has the best toppings but they toppings all suck so it is no good either.

Rating 2/5- "It's Not Worth it"

Unless you really like hot dogs I cannot really recommend getting these. The Chicago Dog was definitely the best just for it's toppings but there are so many better things at Sonic. Give em a try if you like Hot Dogs though.

Tell next time!
