RAYMORE, MO - There's a restaurant in Missouri that is serving its burgers with a side of scripture verse.

And that has some customers offended.

Josh Helmuth explains.

The drive-in classic Americana, as old as the cheeseburger itself.

"Hi, I would like a number one."

But this sonic at Madison and Pine is a little different from all the rest, because of these.

Stickers with bible verses attached to their orders.

Some customers turned to Facebook to vent.

One customer saying "thanks for the sermon. Where are my cheese sticks?"

"How's it going?"

After a short wait following our order, we were hoping to see the stickers for ourselves.

"I don't see a sticker."

But no luck.

Management couldn't give us an interview but they did show us the stickers.

They're a new tradition they've just recently started now that they can't print bible verses on receipts like in years past.

All surprising considering Sonic isn't a known Christian-based company such as Hobby Lobby or Chick-fil-A.

We spoke with Sonic corporate, who confirmed that while they're a public company, franchisees are allowed to do their own thing.

Voice of Jason Acock, Sonic Drive-In Headquarters:  "We don't have a policy backing this. It's the decision by the franchisee that owns and operates that specific drive in."

So some customers we talked with had mixed feelings.

So some customers are enjoying the food for thought.

"Hasn't bothered me a bit."

Josh Helmuth/Reporting:  "Why?"

Woman: "Cuz everyone needs to have God in their life"

Others not so much.

Woman #2: "Why would you go to, like, a Sonic and be like, hey! Here's a bible verse to go with your cheese sticks. That's kinda weird."

Either way, this sonic in Raytown has people talking.

A note just to clarify, the Sonic restaurant featured in this story is in Raymore, Missouri, which is located about 20 miles south of Raytown.
