  1. Don't get the BLT sandwich, it's horrible. I can't get through the first half. The thing tastes like when you eat something and 5 hours later you're still burping it tastes like a nasty burp. Don't get it.

    1. You are so right. I looked so forward to it -- it sounds like something I'd love, but it's horrible. Gristly chicken, fatty stringy bacon, but not just that -- like you say, there is something in the flavor of the sauce that is a little off.
