  • It was good but we felt like it was missing.....something. We couldn't quite figure out what.

    Tried again... the first time i left out the hot sauce because I'm not a big fan of hot sauce. This time I put it in and it made a difference and it wasn't spicy, it just gave it flavor. - 9/28/10
