In 1996 my sister-in-law walked through the door eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich. I told her that I thought chicken was chicken, and it didn't matter which fast food restaurant it came from. She informed me that this was the best chicken I would ever eat. Now I had heard of CFA, but I thought it was the same old dry chicken strips one can get anywhere. So, one day, while at Mall, I tried a Chick... read more >
Which story to tell? Why not the start at the beginning? My very first memory of Chick-fil-A was sitting on a stool at the counter of the original Dwarf House in Hapeville when I was 5-years old. I was mesmerized by the magic of Russ working the grill (I called him the "Grill Man"). Now nearly 40 years later he is the general manager/owner. That's what Chick-fil-A means to me. Family values, tradi... read more >
One Saturday afternoon my boyfriend and I had plans to have lunch at his apartment and then go for a long city walk with his dog (which is something we do pretty often). I arrived at his place and he shuffled me toward the deck where he had a little table set up for an outdoor lunch.
He asked me if I wanted something to drink and I asked for some water... he went into the kitchen and came out ... read more >
On May 9, 2008, I went through the Chick-fil-A drive-thru (twice) turned out to be the beginning of something bigger than I'd ever imagine. Chick-fil-A was a regular occurrence for me (often visiting more than twice a week), however, for some reason on this day I decided to drive through twice in one night, once for a drink and later that night for a meal. The guy in the drive-thru recognized me a... read more >
My daughter and I had just left her softball game and headed to Chick-fil-A on Hanes Mill Road in Stanleyville, North Carolina for a quick bite before heading home. My daughter wanted to go through the drive-thru instead of eating in (which we never do). After ordering and pulling up to the window I noticed my "check gauge" light came on. I looked at the gauges and saw that my temperature gauge... read more >

Our family doesn't have a Chick-fil-A near us (can you imagine the horror?). But vacations to southern states have made us lifelong fans. So, when we were planning a drive from upstate New York to Florida in January 2010, we decided it would be a lot of fun (and a good diversion for the kids) to plan a route that allowed us to eat ONLY at Chick-fil-A's. Down to Florida and back...breakfast, lunch ... read more >
Our beautiful daughter Madalyn was diagnosed with Scoliosis and needed to undergo surgery to help correct it. Spinal surgery is daunting, especially for an active 11 year old. But focusing on the simple pleasures of life (like a #1 Chick-fil-A Combo) can make all the seriousness subside.
The evening before her procedure (a 4-hour operation) she had one request, that we eat at Chick-fil-A. We enj... read more >
