Default Chick fil a

Does anybody like chick fil a??

Where I am at, at lunch time, the lot is literally full, and when I go, I know to park out on the street and walk for a couple of minutes. Just bursting at the seams with business, and the food and service is generally great. The employees seem a step or two above the golden arches.

Plus, they keep to their values, including closed Sundays. Whether you are religious or not, it's nice to have a day off, and they stick to this even though they could be making a big money by staying open.

In a stagnant economy, it's good to see a business booming.

They were one of the frontiers of the fast casual food business; focused on employees/values more than $$ cutting, and look how it paid off.

Only fast food place that I will go. The service is unequaled by any other fast food establishment.

Their No Hummus Sectionals stance is much loved.

I like it, but rarely go. The closest one is just too far and the line is always too long. Unfortunately, I go to Pollo Tropical about 10x more often.

Still, I am as loyal as I can be.

Chik fil a sponsored an event for a local Christian charity that I am close to at the beginning of the summer. That makes me even more loyal.

I don't care about the religion or politics of the place - they simply have good fast food and great service.

Agreed... If you can stomach it, do a comparison between Chick fil a and one of the other places, say McDonalds. Forget the food for a moment and just look at the service and attitude of the employees.

Chick fil a is in a category of their own.




Side note, last time I was in Chick fil a in Stuart I was waiting for my meal beside Burt from Ship Shape TV. I didn't say anything to him as I thought he might break into an infomercial

The one here has at least 2 employees outside in the drive thru line taking orders with iPads.

Ha! I work for a company that sells to call centers. Needless to say, we have a lot of gay employees most of which are in the south. They were all laughing over the "gay ban" of Chick fil a. One of them even said, "If I want a chicken biscuit, you know my gay ass is driving to Chick fil a".

If I have to do FF that's the place to go IMO, Wendy's in a pinch.

If they could come out with a burger, they would put all the other places out of biz within a couple of months.

they serious are killing it!! Every chikfila I've ever known about is FULL come 11:00-1:00 or later. I live about 20 minutes from the nearest chikfila, and I've seriously considered seeing how I can open one up in my town as its a growing town and just starting to get fast food chains. As far as I know there is no chikfila coming yet

Quality and service is unmatched. Just an all around great exoerience when I go there, even if it is busy.

Chick Fil A proves its not all about the dollar (though they are absolutely crushing it on that front). I have tons of respect for the company.

You go into a Wendy's or McDonalds and its not even in the same ballpark.

Only thing that matches it is Smithfield's as far as service and quality.
