America's favorite drive-in fast-food restaurant, Sonic has a lot to offer. With its convenience, retro vibe and fun menu items, there's no doubt you'll be taken back to another time. If you love Sonic's slushes, onion rings, corn dogs and cheeseburgers, you'll want to know the inside scoop on Sonic's secret menu. Yes, that's right a secret menu to add to their ever-growing regular menu! Next time you pull up to the drive-in, ask for one of these.
9 Sonic Secret Menu Items
1. Dr. Pepper Orgasm
Okay, not the most family-friendly named drink out there, but at least you'll know you're ordering something delicious! The Dr Pepper Orgasm is a mix of Dr Pepper, lemonade and Powerade and is available on Sonic's secret menu.
2. Frito Pie
Frito Pie on Sonic's secret menu is a generous serving of Frito chips covered with chili and nacho cheese. Keep in mind that not all Sonic locations serve this menu item, but it doesn't hurt to ask just in case.
3. Grilled Ham & Cheese
Grilled cheese sandwiches are magical, but when you add ham into the mix, that changes everything. Sonic serves Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwiches, which is a twist on a classic. Filled with melted cheese and ham, there's no going back to a plain ol' grilled cheese sandwich.
Deep-fried pickles deserve a round of applause. They're tangy, crunchy, and deep-fried. What could be so bad? Good thing Sonic knows how to make customers happy with this secret menu item. Pickle slices dipped in their tasty batter mix and fried until golden brown.
5. Purple Sprite
Remember way back when Sprite came out with a bunch of fun flavors? Also, know as Sprite Remix. I'm brought back to those days hearing all about Sonic's secret drink option called, Purple Sprite. It's a sugary-sweet mix of Sprite, Powerade, lemonade and cranberry juice and totally refreshing.
6. Sonic Sunrise
The Sonic Sunrise is a simple concoction made with orange juice and Cherry Limeade and has that colorful 'sunrise' look to it. It's almost like a Tequila Sunrise but without the addition of tequila.
7. Made-to-Order Burgers

My first Sonic Burger ever in my car @sonicdrivein I feel just like those two dudes on the TV commercials. I was totally lured in by the 1/2 price cheeseburger deal, which I couldn't resist. I must admit that the burger was quite tasty and full of fresh lettuce, onions & tomato. It was kind of like a salad on a bun. I'm being healthy! Right? #BombDotCom #FoodieLife #foodpics #nom #yumstagram #yum #food #delicious #foodporn #yummy #foodie #picoftheday #instadaily #instalike #instagood #amazing #foodgasm #food #love #tasty #eeeeeats #myfab5 #mychicagopix #checkpleasepics #chicagofoodauthority #foodbeast #chicagofoodmag #sonicburgers #burger #drivethru
Sonic loves to make their customers happy, so if you have a custom burger in mind that's not on the regular menu, Sonic can do it as long as they have all the ingredients and condiments on hand. See what kind of burger you can come up with next time you're at a Sonic location.
8. Sunshine Smoothie
Some Sonic employees might remember this drink since it used to be on the regular menu. This tasty smoothie is made with strawberry, banana, orange juice and either ice cream or frozen yogurt. With this smoothie as an option on the secret menu, it's worth a shot asking a Sonic employee if they wouldn't mind blending up a Sunshine Smoothie for you.
9. Extreme Tots

Did you know that you could get Extreme Tots or Fries still at Sonic? Much like the old days we can still make them but since menu items have changed it’s easier to order them as Chili Cheese Tots/Fries with Ranch, Jalapeño , and Onions for better Switchboard understanding as not everyone has been around as long as the Extreme Tots/Fries have been😉 #customizationdestination #summertownsonic #extremetots #extremefries #foodfactfriday
Sure you can order chili cheese tots with all the added toppings, but make it easy on yourself and order Sonic's Extreme Tots, which consists of tots, chili, cheese, onions, jalapeños, and ranch dressing. It's a little heavy for sure, so be prepared!
