First Impressions: Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich and Chocolate Mint Holiday Shake from Sonic
I recently got a chance to try the Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich over at Sonic. Some quick impressions: The first thing I noticed was that it was upside down. All chicken patty was on top of everything, not below it. I found that to be kind of disturbing. I felt like I was in the Bizarro World. The second thing I noticed was the minimal amount of Caesar dressing used. The tomatoes, lettuce and chicken all looked really dry without it. The most upsetting part of my order was that they forgot to put the slice of Asiago cheese on it!Quick rant continued; I literally hate the Sonic that I go to here in Houston. They have the worse service I have ever experienced in my entire life. They are slow, they always forget something and the staff is always rude. End rant.Taste wise, the crispy Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich surprised me even with the missing cheese and the small amount of Caesar dressing. The first couple of bites were a bit dry, however once I got into my third bite, the entire thing was bursting with flavor. The tomatoes really helped with this. The whole-grain ciabatta bread was toasted right and really good overall for this kind of sandwich. I wouldn’t mind trying other sandwiches using the same bread. I’ll probably pick this one up again when I can get to a Sonic that actually believes in service. Maybe I can get one with cheese on it. Until then, I’ll stick with my favorite fast food chicken sandwich which is the Chicken Bacon and Swiss from Arby’s.I didn’t find that this sandwich was worth what it cost. A bit too pricey if you ask me. It was $4.29 just for the sandwich. I can pick up a better sandwich for the same price or less at some places.I also picked up the Chocolate Mint Holiday Shake. A small set me back $2.69 and I felt that was too much, but it still was awesome. The shake has little mint chips that thankfully make it up through the straw. At first I didn’t know what the hell was going on. I thought maybe the terrible staff was trying to kill me by putting shards of glass into my milkshake. All in all it’s really good and worth picking up while on its limited-time run through the holiday season.
