Sonic Spotted Slinging Lil’ Grillers At Select Locations

Sonic has officially launched Lil’ Grillers nationwide for a limited time at participating locations. Lil’ Grillers represent Sonic’s spin on the classic grilled cheese sandwich in a convenient, portable package. These things are small, almost slider-like.

Lil’ Grillers start at 79 cents, and come in five varieties, including two breakfast options.

The Lil’ Cheese Griller is a portable version of a classic grilled cheese sandwich featuring melted American cheese sandwiched between two pieces of mini Sourdough toast. The Lil’ Cheese Griller sells for 79 cents.

The Lil’ Patty Griller features a 100 percent beef patty topped with ketchup and sandwiched between two layers of melted American cheese and two slices of mini Sourdough toast. The Lil’ Patty Griller sells for $1.49. There’s also an option to make it a double, for and additional 50 cents.

The Lil’ Chickie Griller features all-white meat chicken topped with Buffalo Sauce that’s sandwiched between twin layers of melted American cheese and two slices of mini Sourdough toast. The Lil’ Chickie Griller is priced at $1.49.

Lil’ Breakfast Grillers

The Lil’ Bacon and Egg Griller features a fluffy folded eggs and bacon sandwiched between two layers of melted American cheese and mini Sourdough toast. The Lil’ Bacon and Egg Griller sells for $1.49.

The Lil’ Sausage and Egg Griller consists of fluffy folded eggs and a sausage patty sandwiched between a couple layers of melted American cheese and two slices of mini Sourdough toast. The Lil’ Sausage and Egg Griller is priced at $1.49.

Incidentally, Sonic took out a trademark on the name Lil’ Grillers, which to me suggests they may have bigger plans for Lil’ Grillers – perhaps offering them on the chain’s permanent menu nationwide.

This is a box of cigarettes and a lighter. Between them is the lil griller with patty that I bought from sonic today for 1.49 plus tax. Notice the HALF of a paper thin burger. Ridiculous. Thanks sonic
