    Good try but Chick-fil-A doesn't come in buckets.

    I think the first thing to do is lower your expectations a little. I think Chick is really good for fast food, but it is often over-hyped so peoples expectations are too high. I also think it is just not as good in the north because you yankees aren't as adept at frying.

    I would just start with a regular Chick-fil-a sandwich and fries (the #1 meal). Ask for 1 of each dipping sauce. The "Chick-fil-a" sauce is good to dip fries in. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Quality won't be any different up there than down here.  They are OCD with quality control at all their stores.  #1 with the lemonade to drink.

    Chick fil a jumped the shark when they dropped carrot salad and slaw. At the same time the fil a got a bit smaller and IMO a little tough.

    There’s always a line. The one by my house has a 2 line drive through and the line moves fast but I see cars wrapped around the building regularly.

    I say the same for those that have never had In-N-Out. It is a really good and cheap fast food meal. There are definitely better burgers, but for the price and freshness it is hard to beat. 
    In-N-Out has a cult following, but it’s not for me.

    went with the spicy,  sandwich was good, tender, juicy, didnt care much for the fries, lemonade was good.  line outside was a double line converging into one, 50 to 60 cars =) indoors i was third in line.  hot sauce was petes, they need to change that to franks and add a bluecheese dressing for the north

    I should have mentioned- if you like crispy fries order them extra crispy. They can be pretty good, but are often a little on the soft/soggy side.

    We eat it all the time because its among the better fast food places and my kids actually will eat it. What I've noticed in the last 5 or so years though is that they are growing really fast now and their quality is starting to suffer. It used to be crispy and always hot. Now on occasion I will get nuggets or a sandwich that is soggy or luke warm. We will continue to eat there but its definitely not as good as it was 5 or 10 years ago. And yes don't get me started on the lines.
