I am a man who loves a good burger. I’ve gotten to the point where I hardly will get a burger that comes from a fast-food restaurant.
Pretty much the only exception I have to this rule is Whataburger. I love some Whataburger.
However, what caught my eyes recently at Whataburger was not even a burger. It was the brand-new Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strip sandwich.
I now split my time evenly between a good burger and a succulent chicken strip sandwich from my beloved Whataburger.
After seeing the new creation on TV commercials and hearing commercials on the radio about it, I knew it was next on my list of things to try.
So on Friday, Oct. 2, I ditched my tradition of a bowl from Chipotle to end the work week, and decided to replace it with a Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strip sandwich combo.
I arrived home with my meal still nice and hot.
I devoured my fries first, as they always seem to get cold faster than the sandwich.
I dipped them in some of Whataburger’s signature spicy ketchup. This was a great primer for what I thought would be a delicious sandwich.
Upon first inspection, it seemed as if my Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strip sandwich was all ranch and no buffalo sauce.
As it turns out, I was right.
Now to be fair, the chicken strips were delicious and the bun actually not as crushed as normal after being wrapped up in paper for 30 minutes.
However, I expected my sandwich to have much more buffalo sauce and that led to it not really having the flavor I anticipated.
Barely having any of the tangy spice of the buffalo sauce, the sandwich was overpowered by ranch that was not so great.
Being stingy on the key factor of what could make this sandwich great gets it a pretty low grade. I’ll probably go back to burgers for a while.
