Sonic Drive In/ Chicken Basketdiscontinued gravy

T Review updated:

Why have you discontinued the gravy with the chicken basket? I do not wish to have dipping sauce instead of gravy. Who makes these decisions and why? Just my opinion, but I'm sure others feel the same way.

    Sonic took the chicken dinner off their menu ?! That's my complaint. :(

    I do not like dipping sauces with my chicken strips, , please offer white gravy. I think you will be surprised at how many people agree.

    I had the dinner last night, the "country gravy" dipping sauce was just like water. Disgusting. I also miss the spicy chicken dinner but they disco'd that a long time back.

    Disappointment. Why didnt the order taker say anything? I only order this for the gravy. How do you discontinue something so cheap and easy to make?

    Some Sonic order taker in Sierra Vista argued with me, he was insisting that Sonic never ever ever ...had gravy. I said to him do you want to take my order or argue and he started again ... I drove off.
    The gravy was what made the Chicken Basket ... I guess it's Dairy Queen from now on ...just wish they had the same drinks as Sonic.

    I want gravy as a choice. Without the gravy I’m going somewhere else to eat.

    Sonic has REALLY gone downhill! First they did away with the classic fish sandwich that they had forever, then they bring this new one out (which didn't last long, by the way) with one of those GOD-AWFUL "Brioche" buns (God, I HATE THOSE THINGS!) And now, THIS...getting rid of cream gravy for the chicken strips?!?!? WTF???? Only thing Sonic is good for anymore is the "happy hour" half-price drinks and that's about the only thing I get from them anymore.

    Sonic just quit it! First no more Chicago dogs and now this! I just found out today that there’s no more gravy for the chicken dinner- what r u supposed to dip your toast in- or your tots- I loved that gravy- this is more or less one of your hugest mistakes- if something is good leave it alone- I’m in the hospital, and I was waiting on my husband to bring me this dinner back but now I’m sad because of no gravy from sonic- at least in Kansas we have Braums

    I think it's terrible that they have no more gravy, I use to order the chicken basket all the time, now never. The sauces just don't do it. Terrible decision. Many customers are dropping Sonic.

    Why in the world would the gravy be taken away??? Your sauces suck, and the “new” chicken strips are awful. My kid loves the kids meal because he can get mozzarella sticks but we will be finding a new go to spot. This whole thing sucks

    Bring back the country gravy! Dipping sauce for the strips just isn’t the same, and you gotta have gravy for the toast! I can whip up a great country gravy but I shouldn’t need to! I will not be ordering the chicken dinner anymore. While we’re talking about bringing back great items, bring back the chicken fried steak burger!!!
