After the relative high-brow sophistication of Acre, The Hound and Nonic, it was back to an exploration of local southern chain restaurants. This took us to chicken purveyor and friend of the cows, Chick-fil-A.
A pretty standard fast-food set-up, I looked to the ever knowledgeable MJ for advice as to what I should eat.
She recommended the classic Chick-fil-A meal which comprised their signature chicken sandwich, lattice waffle fries and a drink which I decided should be cola.
MJ meanwhile ordered soup – a welcome first ever sighting of soup in a fast food chain – of the chicken noodle variety. She added their grilled chicken sandwich for good measure.
Items were delivered in double quick time and we took a seat at one of their booth tables.
I first tried MJ’s soup which was pretty decent before tucking in to my sandwich. With just pickle and a little onion as topping, the crisply crumbed chicken was very much the star of the show. It packed decent flavour and succulence. It was a surprisingly good eat.
MJ was fairly pleased with her sandwich, too. With decent fries, this was a pretty good quality fast food experience.
Overall, Chick-fil-A didn’t quite hit the heights of Waffle House but was a solidly enjoyable lunchtime snack. Regular guest quester Dan also gave it a try in their Nashville branch the same day, which was rather a nice touch. Stop by next time you spot the distinctive Chick-fil-A sign.
