Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kids didn't like it I thought this was pretty good, but the grandkids just didn't like it. When I told them sloppy joe they were expecting the usual and they weren't happy with the change. Adults liked it though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Delicious I personally would have used a bit more ranch. I will say that I did not cook the meat in oil and I did drain the fat to make it a little healthier. However, it was very delicious.
