5. El Gringo
Doritos, hot pepper cheese, chili, and BBQ sauce
El Gringo is the patron saint of Sheetz and, as is appropriate with any sandwich with a pile of Doritos on it, we had high expectations for this and saved it for last. A grand finale! This happened to be a mistake. After resting on a picnic table for a good 45 minutes, the Doritos had turned into soggy triangles of despair. Sad Doritos aside, the hamburger patty itself was reminiscent of a school cafeteria lunch, and the barbecue sauce would be better suited for spaghetti & meatballs. It might be because Doritos secretly contain that "can't have just one" addictive ingredient, but we ultimately decided that El Gringo wasn't that bad. Is it a great hamburger? No. Is it a decent sandwich? No. Is it covered in Doritos? Yes.

The Atomic is everything I personally want in a fast-food sandwich: girth and heat. When I first discovered this menu item, I was so excited to try it. And reader, it nearly lived up to my personal hype train. But despite being covered in multiple assumed-spicy food items, the Atomic was somehow incredibly mild. We decided this was a decent enough sandwich, but reminiscent of something you'd order as a special at your favorite drive-thru in an effort to be adventurous, but then regret it on behalf of your digestive tract moments after finishing it.
