The Drive-Thru Won

My adventure partner and I decided that the best place for lunch today would be Don & Millie’s. We actually agreed on Chick-fil-A but their drive-thru was backing up traffic for two blocks, so I set aside my need for a hate sandwich and a Christian side hug. I’m kidding—I wanted a spicy chicken sandwich with no pickles, because pickles are nasty.

At any rate, I decided to get the Cheese Frenchee at Don & Millie’s, because I’ve lived here for years and never tried one. Essentially, it’s a deep-fried cheese sandwich, which checks every box on my must-try list.


As you can see from the picture, I went with the combo meal because really, if you’re going to eat a deep-fried cheese sandwich, why not get the fries too? It tastes exactly like you would expect. It’s brilliant in theory but awful in practice. I only made it 3/4 of the way through, and I like all kinds of weird food. I’ve been known to crave Easy Cheese on spicy pork rinds. One of my favorite meals is haggis followed by a deep-fried Mars bar (I love you, Scotland!) but the Cheese Frenchee won this battle.

The bread absorbs a lot of oil, so it tastes like a slice of American cheese (yum) layered between everything else they’ve fried that day (ew). As the cheese makes up comparatively little of the sandwich, there’s no way it can compensate.
