I've now decided - after going to Bohannan's in San Antonio, that I need to eat more good steaks. Not a ton mind you, but one every 3 or 6 months.

Completely there with you. A great steak is amazing.

I had the double down yesterday. It was delicious. I had quite low expectations after reading this thread, but I didn't taste overwhelming salt, I liked the sauce, and it wasn't messy at all. Just left it in the wrapper and ate it like a wrapped burger.

Yeah, a post snuck in there. I was sighing at the generalization about America(ns).

Still not sure why there's so much hysteria over this sandwich. I mean I can go to almost any restaurant in the area and find several items on the menu that are WAY worse than this. Some of the BBQ places have an all you can eat Ribs night. Folks actually has a night where you can get all you can eat Fried Chicken and Country Fried Steak. I guarantee you I go way past the calorie/fat/sodium count of the Double Down sandwich on those nights.

Ok, you knew this had to be coming. The "Double Down Luther Burger". A KFC Double Down placed between a Krispy Kreme bun.

Pity that chain went to hell once they changed their name from Po Folks to just Folks. Used to be some pretty good eatin' there.

It's all because of the novelty of two pieces of fried chicken being used for buns. If that chicken was sliced up and put on a hero, it would be a normal sandwich anywhere else.

Someone upthread said it best: it's basically the main ingredients for what passes for a salad at many chain restaurants these days, outside of sitting on lettuce.

I thought the name change was stupid, but I still like the food for the most part.

Haven't tried them in quite a while, maybe they've turned it back around. But the first 1-2 years after the switch was fully implemented was really disappointing. Food taste, quantity, and selection went downhill (at least at the ones I usually hit), price went up. That's a crappy combination of changes right there.

So what you’ve got here is one tasty mother of a sandwich that starts with a half Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut, extra Colonel’s Sauce (gotta get in those added calories where you can), fried chicken breast, Colonel’s Sauce, cheese slice, bacon, cheese slice, fried chicken breast and other half doughnut.

I'll never understand why people post blurry ass pictures. It's a freaking digital camera, take 20 pictures if you have to, one of them is bound to look decent. Huge pet peeve of mine

Kind of reminds me of the part in Fletch where he's trying to show his boss the pictures he took while he was in Provo and Fletch said, "If any of these were at all legible, you could see what I'm talking about. Here's a picture of the dog that tried to bite me. Here's one of my hotel room".
