Eating on the road: Chica-chica Chic-fil-A

We’ve been here twice. We’ll hit it a third time before getting home.

Yes, I’m talking about Chick-fil-A. It’s the only time you’ll hear me recommend a fast-food restaurant.

If you don’t know about Chick-fil-A, it’s because you don’t have one near you. It does a killing everywhere else.

Ten reasons we love it:

  1. The chicken is excellent. No, actually, the fried chicken is excellent. The grilled chicken is good, but that’s better than most.
  2. Sandwiches look like sandwiches, not mashed up specimens.
  3. Not just fries: waffle fries!
  4. Or, instead, a choice of coleslaw or carrot-raisin salad.
  5. Sides for kids include fruit cups and applesauce.
  6. Free refills on homemade lemonade and sweet tea.
  7. A lemon icebox pie that I just realized we have failed to order this week.
  8. Mints and lotion in the restrooms (sometimes).
  9. It makes a ton of money and isn’t even open Sundays, because Sundays are for family.
  10. Servers will bring trays to your table, empty your trash — anything that might help you.

You easily can come up with 10 more. Let’s hear them!

    If Chris had his way, CFA would be catering our wedding. In all seriousness, my dad has looked into franchising to Upstate NY. You should talk to him about a venture… 🙂
