Black Forest Ham Grilled Cheese Half Sandwich- $8.00

This is anything but fresh. It looks like it spent hours under a heat lamp, and tastes like it too.

The flavors are nice and rich, and they work well together, but the texture is way too hard because the sandwich sat in a foil wrapper under a heat lamp all day. It’s also not listed on their menu, which probably gives a clue as to why they’re sitting for so long.

The sauce is congealed and too firm. It’s a mayo-based spicy sauce that was difficult to dip the sandwich into because it was so solid. It was like the Zax Sauce at Zaxby’s if it weren’t creamy. The taste wasn’t unpleasant, but getting it to coat the sandwich wasn’t easy.

This would honestly be a good offering if it were fresh, but as it is, don’t waste your money or time on it.
