Secret menus are something that almost every fast-food chain has. Secret menus, also known as hidden menus are dishes or offerings that are not displayed on the menu. Some are made by the patrons of the chain and some are made by the fast-food employees or the corporation itself. Popular examples include Quesarito from Chipotle, Land, Sea, and Air by McDonalds, and Liquid Cocaine by Starbucks. So in that same vein, Sonic, the premier American drive-in restaurant also has its fair share of secret menu items. The menu is filled with imaginative offerings with clever and sarcastic names. Let’s learn about ‘Sonic Secret Menu Items’.
Sonic Secret Menu Items
