Today is the day McDonald’s unleashes its three new premium chicken sandwiches onto the world! The highly anticipated Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Deluxe, and the Spicy, are available nationwide—right now.

Will these sandwiches blow America out of the water, or will they mark another failed attempt by McDonald’s to compete with the big dogs? Many fans have already weighed in with their reviews online, so we flocked to social media to find out.

Our first stop was the Instagram account of Bill Oakley, the Simpsons writer turned prominent fast-food critic. He had all three versions of the sandwich, which he tried as early as Monday. “This thing is indeed the best chicken sandwich ever served at McDonald’s,” he said. (Related: 100 Unhealthiest Foods on the Planet.)

So Mickey D’s has apparently outdone itself, but what about the rest of the competition? Oakley expressed optimism about McDonald’s odds in the chicken sandwich wars, saying it ties for second place. “It wallops Wendy’s, it wallops Burger King, it ties with Chick-fil-A, and it’s 85% as good as Popeyes," he concluded.
