Sonic Adds Footlong Philly Cheesesteaks To Their Menu For A Limited Time

Subway has long been the standard for the footlong sandwich. Even with the passing of the $5 Footlong deal and the fact that their bread doesn’t always measure up, the sandwich giant is known for price and size with its subs.

They just got a cheaper and heftier rival in the sandwich space, though, as Sonic Drive-In just unveiled Footlong Cheesesteaks at a price that tops anything that Subway’s got.

Priced at $3.99 each, Sonic’s cheesesteaks come in at a dollar less than the iconic Subway sandwich deal. They’re available in two forms: the Classic, with grilled steak, onions, and cheese sauce, and the Spicy, which adds on Baja sauce and sliced jalapenos.

Few other fast food chains have a similar item on the menu, with Jack in the Box having sold one for $4.99 and Arby’s carrying one for just over $5. Subway also has the option available, but not as a $5 footlong, making it quite more expensive than Jack and Arby’s, and Sonic’s cheesesteak is a bargain at its significantly lower price.

Sonic’s cheesesteaks are a limited-time offer, but given their price and the ubiquitous popularity of the Philly cheesesteak, there’s always the possibility for it to stick around for longer than anticipated.
