Likely the best fast food and by far the best fast food experience in the US. IMHO

It's fast food chicken. It's good as far as chicken sandwiches go.

The biggest bummer was when spent a day at Cedar Point in Ohio, and the Chik Fil A in the park was closed. It was Sunday, and even there they followed their policy.

I thought it was good. How hard is it to do chicken?

Anyway, I have had worse (KFC) and paid more FOR it!

Best waffle fries and shakes I’ve ever had from a fast food restaurant. Their chicken is tasty, but I don’t eat chicken from fast food joints anywhere other than CFA; so, I don’t have a point of comparison.

Like most fast food, laden with sodium to cover up the inferior ingredients. 1400mg for one sandwich? no, thanks.

I searched, and their website says there is one at the MSP airport, and one at the University.

Will double check, because my son was planning to take me there for lunch on Saturday.

The food is quite good. The overall QSC gets a B+, A+, A+ grade in my estimation.

What's noteworthy is that it's the only fast food place where the employees all speak English, unfortunately that's a rarity here in Texas because of the illegal infestation that the liberals have encouraged.

Yes. Very. Very. Good. Really popular/prevalent in the south, and they have a few specialized items that increase the draw—like waffle cut fries and their own great lemonade. Foil bags for their sandwiches are a small but significant extra touch to keep your yardbird warm until you get back to the office. I could write a novel. Next time you head for warmer climates you need to drop in and give them a try.

Yes, good. I ate my first ever CFA sandwich there a few days ago and have been back twice, yesterday and today. Even if the food was only adequate I’d have gone back, but in each case it was in the very good to excellent range.

CFA manages to fry chicken breast pieces and not dry them out. Been going to a new one nearby (finally) and not had a bad piece of chicken....even the signature sandwich is juicy, not dry.

Well, bless your heart. They have planes that fly south, you know.

And in addition to expressing your patriotism, the peach shake, spicy chicken sandwich, and waffle fries would be worth the trip.

right you are.
took my hubby yesterday and was his ‘first time’ he was amazed at the size of the sandwich and waffle fries..said he wished his shake was a bit larger!!!
we have NO chick fil A in Somerset County, PA. plan to send a letter to our Chamber of Commence about that, but they are sorta brain dead, they like keeping us small, home town country, and I hate it...they don't believe in growth!!!! guess that is why it is all welfare, and retiree's here..I'm ready to move in a snap of the finger, need to work on the hubby!!!

had to drive 55 miles to get a chick fil A in Greensburg PA. and it was worth the trip...not only a good sunny day, but the mountains were beautiful and traffic light...but chick was wall to wall people...and gas here just went to $3.60 gal....go figure?????????

I haven’t had a chicken sandwich from them in 23 years but still remember how good it tasted.

Only started going there this week, so I’m a 100% new customer. The spicy chicken sandwich was amazingly good. Wish I’d known what a good place it was years ago. Many people have been mentioning something about a peach milk-shake, so I’m thinking of going there and trying one out, mid-afternoon.

“OH HENRY...(are you a candy bar?)”
-okay that made me laugh.
not too liberal, just concerned with what i use to power the Lord’s temple. But you are right, one sandwich isn’t going to kill you. It’s just my opinion that they don’t taste great because all you are tasting is salt, not awesome high quality chicken. Eat what you like friend, and I’ll do the same.

I know for a fact that we have Chick-Fil-A restaurants in Kansas, so I would suggest you drive to Overland Park, KS. It would be worth the drive. Especially their fresh squeezed lemonade and their peach mile shakes! Yes, it's THAT GOOD!

Is it any good?

Yes, it is tasty.* Niteowl77 and I went out to Ft. Benning to see Mr. niteowl77 Jr. (now SGT Mr. Niteowl77 Jr.) graduate from Army basic, and Columbus was where I was introduced to Chick-fil-A. They set the hook real good when they gave me that meal, I tell you what.

The closest CFA to us is a 60+ mile drive, but we made the trip last Saturday because:

1. I still consider eating there a treat
2. I wanted to support CFA during this (contrived) "high-dudgeon lynching."

Mr. niteowl77

* After seeing the hair-on-fire hate spewed by the homosexual/communist axis during the past week, I have concluded that maybe it is a little too good for leftists in general and yankees who buy into Satan's idea of "fairness" in particular.

The best fast food is Pollo Tropical. Chick fil A is pretty good though.

As others have said, it’s a tasty chicken sandwich. That said, I’d bet a lot of posters singing the praises of Chick-fil-A would change their minds in a New York minute if Mr. Cathy suddenly came out in support of same sex marriage.

If he did, I wouldn’t agree with him, but I’d still eat their sammiches, they are good. And honestly, the customer service is supurb.... No other fast food joint can remotely compare to them in that category.

While eating in at our local Chic-fil-A we met an employee who had owned a restaurant and catering service in a location , recently demolished, adjacent to CFA. She is retired now but wanted to work because she enjoys people. No one would hire her and she explained that it was because of her pure white hair, which she pointed out. CFA hired her and she buses tables and chats with customers. A delightful, cheerful and grateful employee, and it shows.

I must go back for a peach milk shake.

You can bet the food and service is very good at CfA KFC in Aiken SC can be rude and racist (towards whites) and Popeyes is LOUD! That is the staff is loud...shouting at each other and their friends as they walk in.
In fairness, I have been in neither one in the past 2 or 3 years (for the above reasons)and it could be differnt now.
But I will stick with CFA and their family values.

heh. Is your standard for liberal ‘someone that doesn’t like salty fast food?’. salt is good- vital even- in moderation. My family history of males having their hearts explode at a young age may influence my, as you see it, ‘salt suspicious liberalism’. If you really want to know where i stand socially- economically- hit me up on a personal msg- we have cluttered this forum enough for an argument in which i think we pretty much agree on. As far as the chic-fil-a controversy -I think it’s great that the owner is unafraid to speak about his position based on his faith. -I think it is great that people against that view can protest it. -i think it is great that people who support it can speak with their money. For people in political power to try to drive it out of the cities is complete bull-. beyond that I have had trouble giving a darn about the whole thing.

Probably won’t get to eat there until the weekend (first time visit for us) but if their service is anywhere near their online service, I’m beyond impressed.

Ordered t-shirts online yesterday afternoon and got an email with tracking number this morning. They’re on their way ALREADY! :O

I always laugh when I read someone talking about too much sodium or MSG etc. etc. I don't know about anyone else but I like a good old fat hamburger or hot dog once in a while and care not about the ingredients. I go by looks and taste. Being I only go get one a few times a year, do you think I worry about too much sodium. Let those that go there three times a week or more worry about that stuff. If a person only ate one hamburger a year, what difference does it make it it's that big one called the “heart attack”? I doubt if that will actually give you a heart attack because it has fat and sodium.

Yes, the fried chicken is very lightly breaded and so you actually taste the chicken. I’ve been eating it since probably 1970 something.

man, I really shouldn’t have even said anything. Like I said to haircutter, I totally agree that one burger isn’t going to kill you. As far as MSG goes, It really does give some people wicked headaches, my wife being one of them. And i’ll never be against a hamburger, but i dig it a lot more when i grill it myself, and load it with tomatos from the garden.

I too mostly make my own but unfortunately I don't have access to any good tomatoes, let alone home grown ones. Although Maui is wonderful and I love it here enough to be here for over forty years now, most of the veggies and fruits are shipped here green and only ripen on the way or in the stores. They turn color but the sugar content and flavor is missing.

It’s truly yummy. The plain chicken sandwiches are delicious. But the “minis” are my favorite...chicken on bite-sized yeast rolls, with honey butter.

I like to eat healthy and watch my carbs, but you have to treat yourself once in a while, or life is pretty joyless. Yesterday at Chick Fil-A I splurged and got a brownie. It was a chocoholic’s heaven. Thick with frosting, and so rich I could only eat a couple of bites.

It is excellent. I was surprised how good the food is. I ate at a Chic-Fil-A for the 1st time when the Democrat Fascist mayors of Chicago and Boston started squealing about them. I guess I should thank them for bringing CFA to my attention
