Cackalack's (Part 3)

(Original Review -- July 2011)
(Second Review -- December 2011)

I keep giving Cackalack's Hot Chicken Shack extra lives. I'm beginning to wonder if they shoulda had a cat somewhere in the name or logo. This time, I came back because management had changed since my previous visit.

You know what...the Cackalack's sign and the hypnotizing effect of spicy food. It's their doing! Who can resist a female bird in high heels in sexy clothing holding a bucket of hot chicken? It's the...the eyes! That's it, the eyes got me!

XXX sauce. Habanero-based. One of the "legal drugs" spicy nutcases like me salivate on. The sauce is like crack, man! Wonder what happens if you snort it. OK, bad idea.

The Blazer ($7) is their most popular sandwich. A "boneless fried chicken breast on a Fleur de Lis sesame brioche bun with smoky slaw, homemade pickles, & garlic baby dill aioli." Chicken is coated in sauce of your choice. XXX the chicken and let me at it!

That had to be some of the juiciest white meat I've ever had. The XXX sauce nuked me the first time I had it many months ago, but my built-up tolerance led to a smoky, pleasurable experience. The colorful slaw was crunchy. Mad skill on the homemade pickles; they added more dimension to this one.

The XXX sauce left a small red oily pool, and part of the sandwich lay in it. Not necessarily the best image, but the Blazer still blazed one heck of a trail from my mouth to my stomach.

Oh, and no bad spicy aftereffects for me. Win!

OK, I give in. I'm a fan of Cackalack's. Probably long overdue, too. So after all my rambling typing, ladies and gents, the moral of the story is to put up a suggestive sign for your business and add a lot of spice to the food to reel me in. 7.5/10
