  • Sonny's go-to taco shop when he gets back from tour? Lolita's on Bonita Road! Never been? Drop everything, find the location nearest you (there's seven) and go!
  • When asked about possibly writing a P.O.D. theme song for In-n-Out, Sonny mentioned his friendship with the burger chain's owner, Lynsi Snyder.
