ARBY’S – CHICKEN PEPPERONI – PARM SANDWICH

11 Oct

UntitledWOW. This.  Is.  Special.   Arby’s you did it this time!

This is the best sammich I have ever had from Arby’s.  It’s sooooo good.

If it was just a chicken parm sammich I would be happy…but just the simple addition of some deli slice pepperoni takes this to the next level.  It’s for a limited time..so go get it FAST….oh lawd…..it’s so good…

McDONALD’s – SWEET BBQ CHICKEN

14 Aug

UntitledThe full name of this sammich is the “Sweet BBQ Bacon Buttermilk Crispy Chicken” sammich.   That is one hell of a name.  I shortened it to …..

“Uh…can I get that BBQ chicken-wing-ding sammich?”

“Sorry…what you say?”

“Uh… can I get the crispy bacon with chicken BBQ sammich?”

“uhhhhh yeah…….sure.”

SHADDUP already and tell me how it tastes funny-jerk!

Okay, I can’t believe I am going to say this, but this is the BEST thing I have ever eaten at a Mickey D’s.    Yeah.  I said it.

You know I am not that big of fan of their food anymore – but this sammich has all the flavor and textures and just all-around-indulgence that you want from a fast food place.

I loved this damn sammich and I am not afraid to admit it!

 

 

 

 

BURGER KING – CHICKEN PARM SAMMICH

8 Aug

Untitled“We have sorta been here before…..”

That’s my thoughts as I am sitting here in the drive-thru at the BK.

A few years ago, they slapped some cheese and sauce on their oblong chicken sammich and called it done.

It was barely okay.  Just barely.  This looks like a revamp and serious attempt at a proper chicken parm sammich.

UntitledDid I mention I love chicken parm sammiches???  Cause I totally do.

I have been a big fan of BK for so long…I want them to have a win….and I say that because I have been less than impressed with them for the last several years.

That being said, this is probably the best item I have had at a BK in years.    The bun is soft, the sauce is tangy, the two cheeses bring texture and flavor, and the chicken is crispy and crunchy.   It’s a great little sammich.

And that is what bothers me.   It feels like it doesn’t live up to the $5 dollar price tag.  At $4 I would love it.   But it’s smaller than a whopper and feels like I am spending alot on a little.    Still good tho.   Check it out and report back below!

The Chickie Bickie

2 Aug

UntitledI am hardly ever up early enough for this delectable breakfast item…..but today???ohhh man.

I mean seriously — who in the hell doesn’t like the Chick-fil-a Chicken biscuit?????/

How difficult would it be to offer this all day?  I mean come on guys…Mickey D’s and Jack in the box does all day breakfastes…..and yes

I.  said.  Breakfastes……it’s my blog.  deal with it.

MACARONI GRILL – CHICKEN PARMESAN

24 Feb

UntitledWhen I think Italian comfort food…I think Chicken Parm.  It’s delicious and filling and has all the textures and tastes I love about Italian food.

Macaroni Grill has some excellent food.   Service is always great.   This chicken parm was up there…as in…one of the best I have had in a long time.   Lightly crispy, well-seasoned, and cooked perfectly.

Sadly the capellini that came with….not so much.  It was mushy…almost gummy texture to it.   I am not talking al dente.    I am talking noodles soaking too long and they are just exhausted.   Other than that, this was a fine dish that I would order again…just with a different pasta side.

 

BURGER KING – JALAPENO CHICKEN FRIES

20 Feb

UntitledOhhhhhhkay BK, NOW you are on to something here.

I love chicken.  I love fries. I like chicken-fries.

I did NOT like the Buffalo Chicken fries…they didn’t live up to the hype.

I did NOT like the Cheetos Chicken Fries….again…hype.

Now these here?????  These here Jalapeno Chicken Fries???  These here????  These have something to say.   The breadding on these have bits of jalapeno in them, so you get a scattered bit of heat during the experience.   I have had these twice now and both times I had to wait…which is fine because I wanted them fresh.   Fresh they were.   Nice and crispy.   Flavor and style.  This is a Chicken Fry I can support on a regular basis.

So…of course it will be a limited time thing.   sigh…..

EL POLLO LOCO -CHICKEN TACO AL CARBON

1 Feb

UntitledTwo corn tortillas, fire-grilled chicken, onion and cilantro.

Now I look at that and think “Street Taco”.   But I guess Street Taco doesn’t sound as cool as “Chicken Taco Al Carbon” (said in my Antonio Banderas voice..seriously…I sound just like him).

Anyway El Pollo Loco is new at this location of 360 in Arlington.  They offer “fire-citrus-chicken” and it’s quite tasty.   These tacos were very light and fresh tasting.

The only drawback is I asked for salsa and I got pico.  I bet with salsa, these  could easily be a favorite thing of mine.   Guess I have an excuse to go back.

Very very reasonable prices and fresh taste???  Win. Win.   Go Try’em.
