Lettuce, tomato, too many peppers… what the phuck is this?
You describe their cheese sauce as too “mayonnaise-y.” This is all kinds of wrong: it’s either real cheese (American or Provolone) or Cheese Whiz. Not some sort of mayo-based monstrosity.

Good thing I never go there unless there’s a zero wait, and when I do… I do it right.
PS. Curly fries? Really?
UPDATE: The reason you’re disappointed at the one tiny pepper that it came with, might’ve been because that was just a side condiment, like a pickle spear with a burger.
