Comments: The fried chicken filets we tried were moist and nicely seasoned. And the cheese and bacon were a nice complement. But the sandwich is REALLY BIG. “It’s simultaneously glorious and disgusting.” “I only ate a bite and I got heartburn.”
Would you buy it? Yes, but only if we were extremely hungry.
