My wife came and picked me up for lunch at 1100 (early for lunch, but planning ahead). We got to the Chick-Fil-A off of William Penn Drive in Durham about 1110.

The drive-through line was already wrapped around the entire building, and we had to park about four sections out (technically in the next restaurant's over parking lot - it's all a shared parking area) just to find a place to park. When we got into the store, the place was PACKED OUT. I have never seen this restaurant this busy, even at the height of the lunch rush (~1230). The line with five registers running was still all the way out to the entrance. We stood in line for 5-7 minutes to be able to order.

Yet, even with them taking names for your order to play catch up, they still got our food to us in under five minutes. Tons of people making a political statement, and they STILL operated efficiently and professionally. Kudos to Chick-fil-A!

Lots of Durham city and county personnel taking in the food - Fire-Rescue, prison system personnel, Durham Co. Sheriff, even en entire ten-man Durham PD SET team (like SWAT) - only a fool would have tried to rob that store today! Apparently not everybody in the Durham government apparatus has the same views as the left-wing nuts like the mayor and city council members.

When we left the store at 1145, the line was still out the door, and the line for the drive thru was still wrapped around the building. Traffic was so thick people were having trouble getting out of the parking lot for the press.

I came to work this morning, and a fellow employee had stopped by and pick up Chik Fil-A chicken biscuits for breakfast, and was handing them out.

LOL.....it’s “Nationwide”

Big Media must be panicking.

By tomorrow, they’ll probably stop using “gaffe” and “blunder” with owner Cathy in the same paragraph and start telling us that he engineered this evil marketing ploy to make $$ off the backs of poor homosexuals.

Saw some leftist freak all excited to have donated THEIR lunch money today to some gay organization in protest.

Elizabethtown, KY.

They had a line at the door when they opened and have mucked up the parking lot of the adjoining mall with their lengthy drive through.

Meanwhile, I snapped this after I enjoyed my meal and was on my way to my car at 11:15, And people were walking up in their fours and 10's as I got into the car:

And it was packed inside. That was not a lunch. It was an event.

Wife unit just texted that she and the grandson were at Chick-fil-A at the mall and business was busy and steady.

We'll be going back for dinner out date.

Easton, MD was packed as well. My office had pre-ordered a tray of nuggets and picked them up at noon. Parking lot was full. Overflow parking lot, which is the size of the main parking lot and building area was full. Inside not a table to be had, and just about every spot to stand was taken. Simply amazing!

Ok, so, I’m out with the parental units for my birthday, and we’re not about to wait in line for an hour. However, Support Chik-fil-A day is a rousing success. I plan on eating there once the furor dies down.

Report from East central Alabama:
Just got back from the local mall Chick-fil-a. I have eaten there many times and have never seen lines this long. The lines were at least 20 times longer than they are on a Friday night. (Chick Fil-A is next to the 12 screen theater)

The store on Orange Avenue in Orlando is overrun. The line in the store is 50 people deep. The line for the drive-thru is wrapped around the building. People are still walking up, knowing they're in for a wait, but nobody is turning away and nobody is complaining. Service is fast, friendly and accurate. Eat your heart out, McDonald's!

Ah... I can see them changing tactics and accusing Cathy of some devious marketing scheme.

The funny thing is, if the left hadn’t attacked CFA, we wouldn’t have defended them.

Charleston, SC representing. The Mt. Pleasant Chick-fil-A at lunch had the drive thru wrapped around the building, through the parking lot continuing all the way out to the access road leading to the shopping mall and a little beyond. Overflow parking out into the main mall parking lot. Inside, all registers packed with lines filling 3/4 of the store; all tables, inside and out, filled to capacity.

All the commies have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.

I went early to try to avoid a crowd. what was I thinking...

drive thru wrapped around the building ..into access road...out onto a side street and into the main artery.

Lines of people out the door.

One helicopter in the air.

One news crew.

Before I left they had three cop cars directing traffic.

Employees outside trying to get orders and direct traffic.

Proud to be a conservative today. Note I did not say Republican.

One guy going in asked if they were giving out away free food since he didn’t know about what day it is...

I have seen them give away free food - and it has never been like this.

Just returned from Chick-Fil-A in Concord, NC off Hwy 29. Lots of people lined up outside, and the drive through was slap full. They were being very efficient for the number of people that showed up- I was impressed. No sign of sodomite protesters or the like. I spent $15 in the drive through, total time spent there perhaps 45 minutes. God bless America!

My dad went by Chic-filet in Marlton,NJ said the line wrapped around the building. Even though many people were waiting they were polite to each other and courteous to all those around.

I pulled in to the McDonald’s parking lot next door intending to walk over. The line was out the door. The drive-through was backed up out of the parking lot. I decided to go back and try again later this afternoon.

Folks, I cannot tell you how great this made me feel as a resident of one of the bluest states, Massachusetts. This was the line at the Burlington Mall, and there were 200-300 people in it.

Sadly, I could not have Chick-Fil-A for lunch because I only had fifteen minutes to get it. Swill Japanese food for me today.

To Go Today

(For me, at least...:)

Cars backed up, had to wrap around the building twice then backing up traffic as far as the eye can see. I had to park somewhere else, stand in a long line. Like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

I have been to the local one before. I arrived early for lunch (11:15) since I figured it would be crowded.

The line was twice as long as it usually is. Took about 40 minutes to get through the line and eat. When I walked out, the line was about 5 times as long as it usually is. It looked like the people were there to stay, no matter how long it took.

The TV station was interviewing gay spokepersons outside, but I don’t think they photographed the line.

I’m not going until after work but the Indianapolis lunch crowd has returned and they are saying the lines went around the building and you couldn’t find a space in the parking lot or any of the parking lots of surrounding businesses.

Just heard a news report on the radio that lines are out the door at CFAs here in Oklahoma, and it’s miserably hot today! Some people had to give up because they could not even get close to the restaurant.

May I suggest that if you can’t go to CFA today for whatever reason, how about if we make every Wednesday CFA Wednesday? If you are going to get a bite to eat on a Wednesday, make it a CFA day!

We will be heading there for dinner.

I am in Waco, TX and just got home from our Chick-fil-A. I started crying when I saw the amazing support for CFA! The drive through line was causing traffic delays and the people were waiting in line were wrapped around the building! The Cows should be happy as everyone is “Eating Mor Chiken!”

It was the same here in Greenville,SC! Trying to get near the building was impossible. I couldn’t even get into the parking lot at Noon...guess I will have to try again later.

The main road and the side street were backed up with traffic(suprised the police hadn’t had to come to direct) but friendly Chick-fil-a employee’s helping out. I wouldn’t be suprised if they didn’t set a record for sales today.

The lines appeared to be moving smoothly and people weren’t fighting or causing trouble.....(I would like to think that is because of friendly type people that visit Chick-fil-a) Unlike certain groups that gather to buy the latest Air Jordans.
