They weren’t kidding when they said “double crunch.” The breading is very crispy and quite delicious. The chicken wasn’t the juiciest we’ve had, but it wasn’t dry, either.

The fries are lightly seasoned, and you can upgrade to onion rings for a small additional cost.

The sandwich is topped with apple butter mayonnaise and jalapeño relish, which added a sweet and spicy kick. The jalapeños give a lot of flavor without much heat. Even though these toppings are applied to the bun, the bread is soft and didn’t get soggy.

Pepperjack cheese, lettuce, and tomato round out flavor palette.

Overall, it’s a step up from the usual here. It’s certainly better than the rest of the menu, but it may not be a specific reason to eat at Captain America Diner. You won’t be disappointed with this option at least.

Captain America Diner has always been a tamer choice around the park, traditionally offering no more excitement than bacon on a cheeseburger. It’s nice to see some new choices added to the quick-service location.
