Sandwich Monday: The Mac N' Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt

Denny's has made Sandwich Monday before, and somehow we didn't think it could get any worse. But then along comes the Mac N' Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt, which comes in at 1,690 calories, 99 grams of fat, and a word count of 7, as long as you count "N'" as a word. It's a patty melt topped with mac n' cheese.

Robert:This has everything you need combined in one convenient package. It's a Swiss Army heart attack.

Ian: It's like this is the second season of sandwich, and they hired a new, fatter actor to play "Lettuce and Tomato."

Ian: The fact that the bread is buttered seemed excessive.

Mike: Well there was really a lot of pressure to meet their calorie goal.

Ian: It seems like the entire Denny's menu is created by collisions that happened in the kitchen. Like one day a waiter carrying mac n' cheese bumped into the patty melt guy and this is what happened.

Peter: Yes. Same story with the French Toast topped with another customer's Mastercard.

Eva: It is a pretty accurate cross-section of your arteries.

Peter: I feel like I've traveled to a far future society, where they look at you with wonder and pity, and say, "You had to choose between cheesburgers and mac and cheese? Really?"

[The verdict: This is really, really tasty. It's embarrassing to like something this bad so much. If you can get over your embarrassment, and your love of being alive, this is worth a try.]
