I bought an order for $5.
These came looking (and feeling) a bit more dry than I was expecting. There's a lot of flour on the exposed crust and a fairly even layer of crispy Parmesan Romano on top. The pieces of bacon were mostly crispy with the odd, chewy, fatty bits. The garlic sauce appeared to be missing in action. If it was there, it didn't add any moisture or flavor up top.
Though not exactly abundant, there was an adequately spread layer of melted cheeses in the middle of the cheesesticks (although less so with the end pieces). Compared to the chain's regular cheesesticks, there was a lot more flavor and nuance to the cheeses.
