It was a day off, a Friday morning, I needed to get busy running errands to prep for a party later that night and so my plans for the day didn't include the luxury of cooking a nice breakfast and the clean up afterwards.
That left me with fast food options for breakfast, but who to choose from in my neck of the woods? McDonald's, Starbucks, Sonic, Spangles?
I went with Spangles.
Oops! Bad choice.
I love sandwiches made with sourdough bread, when toasted golden, brown and delicious it's that perfect combination of a buttery, crispy crunch on the outside and a light, 'pillowy' bite on the inside. The cook at Spangles screwed this up. The sourdough on my sandwich was way over-toasted, almost to the point of being burned and leaning towards a bitter flavor. The portion of ham was less than generous and the hash brown nuggets were under-cooked, lacking that exterior potato crunch.
I'll chalk this less-than-stellar visit to my neighborhood Spangles as an anomaly, I usually get good food in my orders but on this occasion, not so much.
The Spangles visited on this occasion is located at 1240 S. Rock Road, Wichita, KS. Arriving at the drive-thru lane and ordering at 7:30 in the morning, I received my order at the window at 7:35. The service was courteous enough, but not smiling and friendly.
My Ham & Cheese Omelette on Sourdough Value Pack only cost me $5.15, so the price was right, but the food was wrong. This Spangles breakfast gets just 2 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.
