Sonic's Footlong Quarter Pound Coney, - Tue, 07/13/10 6:22 PM
Looks like Sonic has joined the "Bigger is Better" race to Obesity!  Who makes Sonic's Hot Dogs anyway?
A deeper question would be, will the other Hot Dog Makers, Sabrett's et al, join the the frenzy? Will all our Hot Dog Cart Brethern demand a foot long? Will Carts need to be reconfigured?? And what about the Bun People?
Is the Hot Dog Apocalypse upon us??
 
OKLAHOMA CITY, June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --  Just in time to celebrate National Hot Dog Month, SONIC®, America's Drive-In®, introduces its new and improved Footlong Quarter Pound Coney, a juicy, plump footlong hot dog topped with warm chili and melty cheese.

"SONIC's Coney has been a customer favorite for years," said Dominic Losacco, vice president of marketing for SONIC. "As part of SONIC's ongoing initiative to improve the quality of our products, we've made some significant changes to our signature SONIC entree to make it even tastier."  
The new and improved Footlong Quarter Pound Coney is a blend of beef and pork and boasts a bigger size than ever before, weighing in at a quarter pound.   The classic coney toppings of chili and cheese round out this entree that is reminiscent of summer picnics, baseball games and family gatherings.
From June 28 to August 29, the new Footlong Quarter Pound Coney is priced for a limited time at $2.99.

I saw their commercial.  It appeared to me as it contains mega beans.  I do not do beans ever never.
 
The dog may be great but I will not be able to consume.

I've had a couple of them, but it was at least five years ago. As I recall, it was pretty good, but messy.

$3 for the Sonic Dog.  For half that ($1.50) we get a 1/4 lb Polish or all-beef Dog and a 20 oz refillable fountain drink at the Costco Snack Bar (with a variety of cold condiments). Other than a Dog at a Ball-game, the Costco Dog is our only venture into Weinie-World these days.

Mayor Al I think there is a similar deal at Sam's Club. I will give the Sonic a try though if I get a chance. And Sundancer7 I hear ya but if I faced a future with no beans I'm not sure it would be worth going on.

One of the trade mags is reporting the Sonic Coney is going from 2.6 ounces to 4.0 ounces. With 3,500 restaurants, they have enough volume for a exclusive frank. Would need the plant number off the box to determine who actually manufactured it. Sabrett has had all beef and beef & pork 12" franks on their line card for a long time now. I don't know how many they sell, or if they are available year round.

I really don't think this upgrade of an existing menu item at Sonic is going to change customer preferences to any large extent nationwide.

Sundancer7 - I am a Managing Partner for a Sonic Drive-In, and can assure you that Sonic uses No Beans in our chili.
The chili that we use is very meaty, and this is what you are seeing in the pics and commercials.

In the spirit of fair play I'll give the Sonic-Dog a try next time we stop to get a Cherry-Lime ade...my usual reason fr stopping there.

Sadly the closest Sonic to us (Clarksville, IN) recently went Belly-up. It lacked the usual location with lots of drive-by traffic...being on a side-street behind a strip mall.  So we have to go further for a good beverage. (and don't do that very often).

With All Due Respect, (As they say in Godfather I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX and X) Your adversion to anything with Beans is well documented on many posts on Roadfood. As a consumer of Sonic Hot Dogs, I can assure you that their Chili Contains No Beans! Actually their dogs are better than many I've tried from Independent Vendors. I get Chili/Onions, no Cheese.

Many of their locations have a few tables where you can get out of the car, sit at a picnic table and munch away! I don't work for Sonic, but enjoy most of their products, especially Dogs & Drinks! Breaklfast Burritos not bad either for the price.

Costco & Sams Club are unique. They use their dogs to promote retail sales and create the impression that they are the absolute leader in low prices. It's a PR Department thing, not a profit center. They get such low costs from their suppliers that they are happy to break even on their Snack Bars. In the Retailing World, it's called a Lost Leader. Don't get me wrong, I love their Dogs. Worked near a Costco, went there 3 times a week for a Dog & Drink! I think they used Hebrew National. Don't know it for a fact, but I would bet they are the #1 & 2 Retailers of Hot Dogs in the Universe!  
 
A Hot Dog at a Ballpark could cost you upwards of $68.00!!!!!! Just ask The Wandereing Jew!

JT, welcome to the forum! And thanks for clearing that up! I would not have eaten a chili dog here in Texas that had beans. In Oklahoma... maybe? :~) I am gonna try one now. Is it acceptable for folks in GA to put beans in their chili?

And JT, those $1 burgers yall make are pretty good, especially w/ an extra pattie and no cheese. Then they are a bit more $ w/ 2 patties but still a good deal.

Paul, please be careful who you accuse of putting beans in their chili. Hmm, does Windy's chili have beans? In some parts of Texas it is an offense punishable by.... hmm, something? :~)

JT772 (or anyone), will Sonic be offering the foot-long in addition to the extra long coney, or will it replace it for the 3 months?

I know you said it in jest but I did not accuse them.  I merely stated that the commercial they were running appeared to have beans in the chili.  If they run it in your area, observe closely.  Our friend FoodBme appears to be very knowledgeable regarding their menu.

actually---here in Oklahoma--its better then most hot dogs available---the foot long meal deal was filling and tasty---and there are no beans in the chili--i like the chili a lot better then the local 'conie" shops--the cheese is processed of course--but all in all--- a decent lunch

Paul,   I can assure you that there are NO BEANS in the sauce.  It  is a ground meat and  chopped onion based sauce and no beans allowed!  So it is safe you you to go and enjoy one.

Paul, your words were... "I saw their commercial. It appeared to me as it contains mega beans." You are right of coarse. You did not "accuse". And also right about the "in jest" thing. But, sorry anyway. Now, are you gonna try one since it has no beans?

Tiki, thanks for the report! And, you know us Texans like to kid w/ our neighbors across tha Red River.

Thats from the movie Office Space.  I do not know the significance of it as it pertains to this thread.
 
 
On another note, these 1/4 dogs are about the size Sonic used to have back in the 70's.

There are a couple Sonic's within about 5 miles of home.  I'm going to have to stop in one day and try one.  I believe eating off the tailgate of the truck would be the best option.  Cherry Limeades are good, too, although I haven't been there in some time. 

I do enjoy a good Coney, however.   Don't forget the mustard and onions on it, too.

My own experience has been that the Sonic chili-cheese-onion dog with a cherry limeade is one of the great fast food, or junk food if you will, experiences.  I agree that it is hard to manage in a car if you are moving.  I always ask for handfuls of extra napkins and try to cover everything from the neck down before I start driving.  Then it is still a problem to pick up the sandwich and, driving carefully, take a bite.
 
One thing about this food combination that PapaJoe8 will appreciate even if no one else does, the (cherry) limeade and chili reminds of Shanghai Jimmy's serving lemonade with Chili-Rice.   The combination was original with Jimmy, at least in my experience, and a real innovation.  It has been mentioned several times on this and other message boards. 
 
The worst thing about my two most frequently visited Sonics is that they are better situated for Southbound traffic whereas I am generally Northbound when I go past and in a traffic situation where a left turn may not be easy.  Probably good for me.  I eat too much anyway.

It is incredible what people do when driving. Actually eating A sonic footlong w/chili while driving would probably be an improvement around here to the 8 of 10 that are chattering on their cellphone. We've got half of them going 20mph and the other half going 90mph. Might as well get some chili dogs in the mix.

On OKC's rec I must now try the new Sonic chili dog w/ a cherry limeade. And yes, I will be thinking of Shanghai Jimmy.

For those who have not had the joy of chili w/ lemon or limeade give it a try. Tha cherry part will be new for me but hey... sounds great!

SURE DO.
 
Hot dog pulled out of the wrap a little and placed on the  seat beside me.  Position confirmed for blind acquisition before I move.  Eyes never off the road.   Generally don't eat until I am on a divided highway and always stay in the right lane.  Don't pick up the food until I have a good separation from traffic.  I do get a lot of chili on my face and shirt.  Ditto for any drink.  Pull off the road for clean up if I spill or drop something.
 
I never use a cell phone while driving.
 
 
AND MIKE S.
 
I was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Texas.  Love both places.  Have heard - and told - a lot of jokes about both.  I wonder if you have read Baja Oklahoma by Dan Jenkins.  It will give a little different perspective on the phrase, same as he does for Fort  Worth (versus Dallas) and Paschal High (versus any other) and TCU (ditto).

I wonder if Sonic would cut the footlong in half and wrap it in two pieces of whatever they use (paper/foil). Helpful if someone's arm is in a cast.

I would think they would. They serve it in a thick paper tray and put the tray in a long bag sized to fit.

I think Sonic  makes the best Limeade for a "fast food place" How great they taste on a hot Carolina day. When it comes to eating while driving.. well if you are prepared to wear a bit of your lunch,so be it. Texting while driving is far more dangerous to all than a Chili dog...or trying to dial and talk on a cell phone. My Mother and I had a close call on Thursday with someone doing that.

I tried the new Sonic Footlong Quarter Pound Coney. I ordered it with chili, melted cheese, and (chopped white) onions. I thought it was good, but not up to the standard of the hot dogs found at the best roadfood places. There was no "Oh Wow" factor.

I was unable to identify who made the hot dog. The ends of the skinless dog were not covered with anything, so was able to taste just the dog. The predominant flavor was that of added liquid smoke. The chili was meaty, with the flavor profile very similar to Hormel canned chili.
 
The coney also did not look like in the commercials on Youtube or in photos on the website. I'm not sure you get as much chili and cheese as seen on the ads. Either that or they took the pictures a split second after they put the chili and cheese on the dog. Gravity will pull the chili and cheese down into the bun.

I might have to try one of these. The Sonic here has generally be really good as far as the quality of the food. I cant complain about the burgers(Though Culvers is still the best for fast food).

Had one with fries and an ice tea for lunch yesterday----as i have said in the past--i am not a big fan of the hot dogs in Oklahoma--but this one isnt bad---surprisingly tasty dog with good chilli--and it really is a footlong---and not one of them pencil thin ones either-----until i can get back to New England at the holidays and get split top buttered and toasted buns with a good natural casing dog--this is my hot dog of choice here in Oklahoma!

The Sonic footlong coney is a perfect example of "quantity over quality". I tried one with low expectations, and wasn't dissapointed.
