    There’s something about the incredible flavor of the beef patties at Sonny’s Hamburgers that sends delightful shivers down our spine every time we bite into a new slider, fresh off the grill. Whatever secret ingredients are in the seasoning, they somehow makes the beef taste more beef-y. And there’s just the right amount of grease to make [...]
