So we can all agree that Sonic burgers are pretty good. Not in the same neighborhood as the greatness that is Five Guys but not too bad for a fast food chain. But someone at Sonic clearly thought they could do better, so over the last few weeks Sonic has been giving their burgers some upgrades.

Which is never really a bad idea. Most people have certain expectations when it comes to fast food burgers. They’re supposed to be hot, fresh and taste better than the paper it comes wrapped in. I know, not the highest of expectations but this is fast food.

So you have to commend Sonic for at least trying to take their burgers up a notch. I mean, their Popcorn Chicken Po’ Boy Sandwich was a huge hit so they must be doing something right. Why not try that same can do attitude on their burgers.

Their latest attempt to give you a better burger experience is the new Crave Cheeseburger. What gives it such a high level of crave-ability? (And yes, I just made that word up.) If you ask Sonic, they’ll tell you it all has to do with their top secret, we’d tell you but then we’d have to kill you, Sonic Crave Sauce.

So what is in a Sonic Crave Cheeseburger exactly?

According to the burger loving fools over at Chewboom (lord we love them folks) the Crave Cheeseburger includes a pure beef patty topped with cheese, tomatoes, pickles, lettuce and onions all put between two halves of a toasted bun.

But what puts it over the top in crave-ability is the Secret Sonic Crave Sauce. We have no clue what is in it but we’re willing to bet it’s more interesting than the “secret sauce” McDonald’s puts on a Big Mac. Spoiler alert: it’s just Thousand Island dressing.

Sonic so wants you to try one that until August 1, you can get one for half price if you place your order online or through the Sonic app. Which is good because the Crave Cheeseburger will only be around until August 29, which means you have until the end of the summer to experience the crave-ability for yourself.

Next. Top Chef: And then there were still three. dark
