Chick-fil-A

A search for Chick-fil-a came up blank, hopefully this is not a repeat thread.

The soft serve thread reminded me about Chick-fil-A. I like their food, especially the Nuggets, Wagon Wheel Fries, and Cole Slaw. How about you?

    I used to think it was "Chick-A-Fil". My daughter still makes fun of me. Don't ask me why, or what I thought it meant. Never been a big fan, so I guess I didn't care that much ~ [|)]

    They do make some very tasty food. Need to try their new hand blended milk shake.

    They have good lemonade and soft serve, I'm not a big chicken sangwich guy, but I gotta admit, they make a pretty good chicken sangwich. And yes, I also have to try their shakes.

    One of the reps brought a bag of the chicken biscuits for a breakfast meeting. Really good. A nice change from donuts or bagels.

    Chick Fil-A is the only FF restaurant I'll go to without a feeling of dread. The chicken is divine, the french fries are cooked perfectly (and I like waffle fries, yippee!), and everything is fresh. I love that the chicken breast sandwiches and nuggets are actually cut from real chicken breasts, not mechanically separated from rib and backbones ala McDonald's.

    If anybody lives in NYC, there is a Chick Fil-A branch in the Weinstein Dining Hall at NYU in Greenwich Village. I went there many times this spring and had my first taste. I'm in love with that sandwich! Th dining hall is closed for the summer, but should open up again the first week of September. There's a sign saying you must have student ID to enter. Now I haven't been a student for some time and no one carded me for a chicken sandwich, so I just moseyed on in and grabbed a couple to go.

    Kings Island {an amusement park in the "greater cincy area:"} has a Chick-Fil-A.

    This thread started out pronouncing Chick-Fil-A wrong.

    My dyslexia has me pronouncing it "Chick-A-Fil".

    Oh, and has anyone else had the occasion to visit one of the Chick Fil-A Dwarf Houses? They offer not just Chick Fil-A food but also breakfast food, burgers, and pies (and more stuff I just don't remember). Definitely worth checking out if you're in the Atlanta area.

    I agree, this is probably the best fast food chain in the country.
    Food is fresh and tasty and service is great.

    They are closed on Sundays---I respect that but wonder how much money they're losing out on? Driving back from the beach in the summer on Sunday afternoons, there is a Wendy's, McDonalds and Chick-Fil-A side by side. Imagine how much money they could make!

    The boss of Chick Fil is a very principled man and very religious. He has been questioned about this before and refused to buckle.

    It is his place and he can do as he wants but I agree that Sundays business is a huge chunk.

    I like it OK, but sometimes when I bite into a chicken sandwich the meat doesn't always look like its been cooked all the way through and this turns me off, and I have to dump my sandwich. Sometimes when I go inside and order I ask for the flattest piece they have. They look at me weird but comply. I love their slaw and I like the chicken nuggets and dip them in their polyneisian sause.

    I agree, The chicken sandwich is bland in my opinion. I like the chain but the food is just OK but I like their fries.

    I actually know people who avoid the other fast food restaurants but do eat at Chick Fil A ONLY for the reason that they do not open on Sundays.

    As far as how much business they lose for not being open on Sundays, that is a very good question. I have family who works for both Target and Kohls and at their meetings management at both chains claim that Sundays are the "slowest" day of the week when it comes to fast food. Of course what would Target or Kohls know about fast food?
    Well maybe Target somewhat since they do that their snack bar but despite the claim, Target's snack bars are open on Sundays.

    I really like Chick-Fil-A. Their sandwiches are very tasty, the combination of the chicken and the pickles is really good. I really enjoy their Southwest Salad with spicy dressing. That dressing actually lives up to its name, it's got a kick.

    I'm not crazy about their waffle fries. When they're hot, they're good but it seems like they get cold faster than regular fries.

    There is only one in the state & we go on road trips to get it. The chicken sandwich w/no butter sauce (hydrogenated oil!), waffle fries & a LARGE lemonade are my idea of happiness. In fact, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    If my coworker & I win the lottery, we are opening up our own Chick Fil A store in Waukesha or Milwaukee County.

    The ONE time I have eaten there since the early 80's ===>> Sandwiches were "immediately" available & put on my tray right after I ordered; a VERY bad sign for me as that says "Fresh from the warming bin".

    Chick-fil-A has come to our area recently. We ate at one years ago on a trip to the south, so we tried the new one closest to us. Although we like the fact that they treat their employees and customers very nicely, the food was....well, we thought it was gross. Not at all what we rememberered from the early "90s. We just couldn't figure out why there was a huge line out the door and the drive thru was many cars deep.

    I'm with you, zataar! The employees are friendly and the store is clean, but the food is bland. There are many other better-tasting choices, in my opinion.

    Locally we had a small one in the local shopping Mall..not part of the food court, but in a small storefront down one 'leg' of the mall. Recently that closed and a new Chick-fil-A was built as part of the new Parkway development in Clarksville. It is a 'full-service' stand with drive-thru and the usual sit-down area. We haven't checked the menu to see what may be different from the smaller store. I always considered them to be a bit overpriced and rather bland. We haven't had a sandwich from the place in 5 years.

    When they opened the new Chick-fil-a in my area about five years back, their CEO was there, so I walked over and met him. Really nice guy, who I liked as soon as he mentioned one of his kids goes to Clemson. From what he told me, executives with the company have to sign off on the fact that they will always be closed on Sundays. They say this is so employees can spend time with their families. It might not be the best business decision in the world, but you have to respect the fact that they believe in something and stick with it. From what I have heard from friends in the corporate culture, most CEOs would sell their grandmother if it would improve the bottom line.

    My niece, who is now 18, has worked at Chick-fil-A all through high school and they treat her and the other kids very well. Considering the food isn't too bad, they get a big thumbs up from me.

    The chicken noodle soup is really good. Perfect pick up lunch for back at the office on a cold rainy day.

    The new shakes are pretty darn good, particularly the one with crushed Oreos. It's a pity that I learned I'm diabetic, otherwise I could consume my weight in those things.
