Sonic Drive-In Canine Menu

Many people may not know that Sonic has a somewhat secret doggo menu offering a dog biscuit and, at some locations, a "pup cup" with either whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Some stores will even bring the treat to your car so you can enjoy your meal alongside your furry companion. Note that dog menus may vary per store.

For $7.50, you can buy your furry pal a Bag O’ Bones meal — which features five ShackBurger Dog Biscuits made by Bocce's Bakery — or a Pooch-ini treat for under $4, which includes vanilla custard, two dog biscuits, and a peanut butter sauce. Note that the Pooch-ini meal includes dairy, sugar and nut products and is not intended for small dogs, according to a picture of the menu.

'Cup for Pup' from Dunkin' Donuts

Similar to Starbucks' puppuccinos, dog owners can ask for a "Cup for Pup" for their doggo at participating Dunkin' Donuts. The puppy treat is served in either a two- or four-ounce cup, large enough to fit most dog snouts, filled with whipped cream. Some locations charge for the treat while on certain occasions Dunkin' asks for a $1 donation to a select charity in exchange for a complimentary cup.

This treat is sure to get those tails waggin'. Next time you visit an In-N-Out, ask for a "pup patty" — a plain hamburger patty served in a doggy bag. The pup patty costs only $1 and is served without any salt or seasonings. You can also order a plain patty at Johnny Rockets' restaurants where dogs are welcome while dining outside at most locations.
