Little Caesars Detroit-Style DEEP! DEEP! Dish Pizza Promotion

Little Caesars is celebrating its Detroit-style DEEP! DEEP! Dish Pizza with a special promo price.  From November 2nd through November 15th the DEEP! DEEP! Dish Pizza will be $6 instead of the $8 regular price.

Detroit Style Deep Dish Pizza

What is Detroit-Style pizza? There are other delicious regional styles of pizza, including Chicago and New York, but Detroiters know this style. They grow up with it. It’s the hometown pizza. The distinctive Detroit-style deep dish pizza originated in the 1940’s with the use of a blue steel pan (similar to those used in industrial parts trays in the Motor City), which is coated with olive oil. It is a square or rectangular pizza that has a thick deep-dish crisp crust, a crispy-crunchy edge and chewy inside texture, and cheese from edge to edge.

Review: Buffalo Chicken Fries from Burger King

Since the return of Burger King’s Chicken Fries, the brand has embraced the product enough to come out with new versions.   First up was Fiery Chicken Fries which were released back in August and now it’s new Buffalo Chicken Fries.  Let’s review. Buffalo Chicken FriesBurger King describes their new Buffalo Chicken Fries like this:

Our one of a kind Buffalo Chicken Fries are made with white meat chicken, and coated in a buffalo seasoned breading with smooth flavors of mild peppers, tangy vinegar, and creamy butter cooked to crispy perfection. Buffalo Chicken Fries are shaped like fries and are perfect to dip in any of our delicious dipping sauces. Choose from Ranch, BBQ, Honey Mustard, Zesty, Sweet & Sour, and our specialty Chicken Fries Sauce.

I was never a big fan of the original Chicken Fries, although I felt they were OK for what they were.  Fiery Chicken Fries were a little bit of a step up for me, but still nothing I’d consider to be worthy of a repeat buy.  The latest incarnation is the best of the bunch so far and they’re likely going to be a repeat buy.  I’m just as surprised as you are.

Review: A.1. Special Reserve Steak Sandwich from Arby’s

My vote for best fast food restaurant of 2015 so far probably goes to Arby’s.  If they’re not #1, they’re definitely in my top 3.  Arby’s has been on an impressive roll of quality and consistency.  Just as recently as September, the Spicy Jalapeno Brisket Sandwich made a positive impression with me, but the list of stellar sandwiches this year also includes the Brown Sugar Bacon & Pit Smoked Ham and the Smokehouse Turkey.  These sandwiches have freshened up the Arby’s menu by introducing new ingredients that really complement the stacks of meat that Arby’s is now getting recognition for.  The latest Arby’s sandwich to get the LTO treatment is the A.1. Special Reserve Steak Sandwich and it keeps their streak of above average fast food sandwiches alive and well.

A1 Steak Sandwich Arbys Arby’s describes their new A.1. Special Reserve Steak Sandwich like this:

When you become best friends with a steak sauce like Arby’s did with A.1. Special Reserve sauce, you do best friend things like make a sandwich together. Not just any old sandwich but one made with best friend things like sliced Angus steak, melted natural cheddar cheese and a crispy thick-cut Steakhouse onion ring. And then, because we’re Arby’s, we put that beautiful, sandwich on our menu. So we can all be best friends. ​

With new fast food sandwiches, you can usually get away with being worthy of being labeled as “new” if you introduce just one new ingredient.  A lot of times, the label “new” is thrown around so casually when there isn’t much new going on besides a new combination of ingredients. … continue reading “Review: A.1.
