Here's the Challenge: I will donate an additional $1.00 for each post up to 250 posts telling us what your favorite Chick-Fil-A menu item is. I've never eaten there but I'll dang sure be on Wednesday. This thread is created to help Free Republic keep the lights on as well as help me choose what to order on 8-1-2012! Come on FReepers, don't be CHICKEN!!
p.s. I DOUBLE-DOG dare any Freeper to match the dare at any set figure from one buck on up.
The Chik Fil A sandwich and an Ice Tea. Best tea in fast food.
Hey dark, we need to get some folks with ping lists over here to send out invites to the party. Do you know of any? I’m calling sunkenciv. He may or may not hit his lists. It’s worth a call though.
A #1 combo
Chargrilled Chicken Salad with Fat Free Honey Mustard dressing. And a root beer (not easy to get root beer in most restaurants around these parts).
My choice is the Chargrilled and Fruit Salad. With the obligatory Waffle Fries. Most triumphant.
The breakfast menu is superb, especially the spicy chicken burrito.
The chicken nuggets. I love them. Great for lunch if I’ve got a few bucks to spend.
Post # 22 has us at $12.00. Woo Hoo!
I like the breakfast biscuits.
When did I hit my limit? I think it was when Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel got involved, throwing his muscle--- Im talking about raw political knuckle sandwich --- into the face of a private businessman explicitly because he espoused Christian values. But heres the back-story.
Dan Cathy, the CEO of the Chick-Fil-A restaurant, was explaining his business philosophy to the Baptist Press.
He said that Chick-Fil-A is not an exclusively "Christian" company, but they try to run it in a Christian manner: they close on Sundays, for instance, so all their employees can go to church and/or spend time with their families.
Explaining pro-family, he said they treat gay people with respect, as customers and employees. But as far as he and his kin are concerned, theyre in favor of the Biblical definition of marriage; they are all still married to their first wives and proud of that.
Well, thats when the chick hit the fan.
Gay activist groups: THATS HATE SPEECH! BOYCOTT CHICK-FIL-A!
Pro-family groups: WE SUPPORT CHICK-FIL-A! COUNTER-BOYCOTT!
Chicken-consumption-wise, the Christians probably way out-weigh the LGBTQQIs in sheer tonnage, so I expected an easy win for Chick-Fil-A. I said to myself, Self (I said), Next time youre near a Chick-Fil-A, treat yourself to a Spicy Chicken Deluxe and a Peach Milkshake. The finger-lickin-Christian-chicken people would triumph, I had no doubt!
INCREDIBLY, THE POLITICIANS STARTED SWARMING. Elliot Spitzer --- --- Seriously??! Elliot Spitzer?!!--- the politician who spent $80,000 on the services of prostitutes when he was Attorney General and Governor of New York?? That Elliot Spitzer? --- said he and his pals would be boycotting Chick-Fil-A in order to show our commitment to the values we believe in.
And other politicos started squawking, not just with their views and values, but with outright Mafia-style muscle. Boston Mayor Tom Menino said he would block any Chick-Fil-As opening in Boston; Rahm Emanuel said the restaurant would be barred from expansion in his city because Chick-Fil-A values are not Chicago values. ( Chicago? Values? Seriously?)
Calling Tom Wolfe! Calling P.J. ORourke! Cluck, dudE! Where are the social satirists when you need them?
Theyre going to use the coercive power of the government to stop a restaurant chain, because the restaurant guy supports Biblical marriage.
Like I said, thats when I hit my limit.
Im not just buying a Spicy Chicken Sandwich.
So, Birthdays? Weddings? Pot-Lucks? And now you know what Im giving for Christmas this year.
Peach to People of Good Will.
I searched for the Chick Fil-A today that is listed on their Store Locator at 5 University Place, NYC to no avail. Does anyone know where it is ? Inside an unmarked building ?
I’ll have the double fil’A chicken both gAy married on a bun. Kosher pickle on the side just for the appearance of hetero functional in the traditional sense. Two pickles would be taboo and construed as an all gay meal especially with mayonaise galore.
I vaguely remember eating there once in 1990 when I PCS’d from NRD Cleveland to PCU Chosin (CG-65) but what me my wife and 2 kids had? It was chicken. :-) I will be going to Massachusetts on Wednesday since I seem not to be able to get gift certificates online for my brother in Ohio.
There are none around here. The last time I am sure I ate there was in Ft. Walton Beach. I am certain that I ordered the regular chicken sandwich and a coke. I thought it was good.
The one thing I recall is my elderly Father was also with me and he ordered the same. He particularly liked the chicken sandwich and I can still remember his saying the chicken didn’t leave a taste in your mouth the way burgers did.
I took my entire family to Chick Fil-A after attending a gun show and buying a Uberti level action rifle in .44-40 caliber.
Be sure to snap a photo and send it to The Rahmfather and Herr Bloomberg while yer at it.
Awesome post Mrs. Don-o!
Visited Chick-Fil-A 4 times this week! My favorite is the Spicy chicken sandwich. Just volunteered today at a charity golf tournament and Chick-Fil-A supplied over 150 chicken breakfast sandwiches for FREE!! I can’t wait to see the turnout on the 1st.
