Reading the October, 1912th edition (that's what it says....) of Game Informer there is a short Q&A with Kevin Butler. One of the questions reminded me of discussion on Giant Bomb about a particular sandwich of which i have no experience; The Monte Cristo.
 
Game Informer - "...what is your favorite sandwich?"
 
Kevin Butler - "Have you ever had a Monte Cristo? It's an entire ham, turkey, and swiss sandwich dipped in French Toast batter and deep fried. It's actually semi-extinct in most parts of the world, because few could handle its epicness. Well, my favorite sandwich is a double bacon cheeseburger with two Monte Cristo Sandwiches as the bun. And a Diet Coke, obviously." 
 
 
So who among you, Giantbomb community, has experienced the "epicness" of the Monte Cristo?

of course - and it is great - even for a none smoker like myself.  once in awhile for sure

The Monte Cristo (when properly done - I've had some not so good ones) is full of epicness.

That sounds delicious and of course Kevin Butler is on top of his game.

They are really good, but I don't think I've ever felt worse than I do after eating one.

I wish Kevin Butler was real. He's hilarious.

I've had the Melt version of it, and it was pretty awesome. @Sin4profit said:

I've had this exact sandwich, except the bun was two grilled cheese sandwiches. It was called, "The Grand Melt." It was spectacular.
