I've never heard of Chick-fil-a,

not until their bigoted asses made the news.

Maybe it's where I live. Then maybe it's because I'm not a big fan of chicken, especially chicken raised in chicken factories!

From what I seen on the evening news, their food looks like crap!

1. I'd heard of it, but never eaten there.

 

Their food doesn't look any better or worse than other fast food joints, from what I've seen.

2. Their waffle fries are good,

but only if fresh. And the Chik-Fil-A sauce is good, though others prefer the Polynesian sauce.

Doesn't matter since I won't be eating there anymore.

3. They're big in the South

Basically think of a far right wing Baptist church that has a drive-thru and serves really greasy chicken.

They are also closed on Sunday, which makes you the golden nugget of restaurants in the deep South.

5. Actually they do not have greasy chicken.


The do not do fried chicken like KFC or other chicken places.

Chick-Fil-A has boneless chicken breasts and nuggets that are actually good.

BUT there are copy cat recipes online so you can make the same thing at home

6. I will take your word Tx4obama

I have only eaten there once, when I was on a school trip in high school. My memory was that the chicken strips were not very appetizing, but my memory may be somewhat cloudy.

4. One in my neighborhood, a lot of hype about how good the food tastes.

Now I live by Rick Warren's Saddleback church.

The food sucks, better than KFC, yes, better than El Pollo Loco, or numerous other small chains that sell grilled chicken in bowls or burritos, not even close. To add, the staff is so saccharine sweet that I needed an insulin shot after trying their over priced food.

8. I've never been there either...

I do like fried chicken though. Sometimes I buy the day old stuff at the grocery store in the cold deli section. As a previously right leaning independent I am saddened by another wedge being driven into American society.
