“I have been isolating since February as I am immuno compromised. Yesterday, I went to drive through here to TRY and eat something from what used to be normal. Ordered 2 breaded chicken trio with fries and coffee. And a Dave on the side. My brother ate his Dave and... See More I had my chicken sandwhich. The portions were ridiculously child menu size! I took pictures. The worst thrown together sandwhich. I thought my first quarantine takeout would be incredible. Your commercials are SO misleading. $23 got us nothing. Thankfully no one ate second chicken sandwich. Low and behold- I got sick. Nausea, sweats, stomach pangs and pains. Diarrhea several times. Up all night. Nausea, sweats stomach pains in morning. Tremors.
Tried having a toast mid day, and again could not handle it. Diarrhea, nausea, tremors, unwellness and its evening. How many days is this going to waste? Shame them! You have all the time in the world to present good food, bigger normal portions not kids menu size, and practice safe handling of food!!! I worked in restaurants and am a home chef. Unacceptable. No napkins, no condiments were given for $23. Never again.
