It took some time being subjected to the ads before this sounded good. I’m not typically a chipotle fan, but it all worked out because the sauce was more honey than chipotle.
[a note about the photos: i set out to photograph the food as is, to help you, the consumer, deal with all the weird things they do to food in commercials and photos to make them look good. typically the food _doesn’t_ look good, as in this case – it’s kind of beat up.. please be sure and read the review though, as to not judge the book by it’s cover alone]
The first thing I noticed about this $1.59 frankenstein is that it’s on a whole grain / wheat looking bun. This is interesting because whitecastle has never done a different bun style. I find it odd that they would alter their production for just this one sandwich.. but, lo- it was some tasty bread. It went with the sandwich much better than the wheat bun on that chic-fil-a grilled chicken I had a while back.
The sauce, as I said, wasn’t all that spicy. A little bit of tang to it, but mostly a sweetness. Not bad. The chicken breast was the larger size (which came about after they introduced the “chicken ring” sandwich and the “alaskan” fish sandwich – a poorly publicized move in my opinion).
The bottom line? I will get this again. I wouldn’t eat 2 or three of them in a row, but it would make a great addition to a typical bag of burgers.
