Rave: Chick-Fil-A

I was out shopping today and decided to stop at Chick-Fil-A. I rarely stop there because of the prices. I'm too much of a tightwad to spend $5 on fast food when I know I can get a sit down meal for the same.

Anyway, I decided to splurge on the Chick-Fil-A meal. I drove up to the drive thru and could not believe the line. It was wrapped completely around the store. My van was almost blocking the exit of the drive thru. As I pulled around, I saw a man standing on the sidewalk talking to customers in their cars. I could hardly believe what I was seeing.

Eventually, the man came to my van. He asked me if I knew what I wanted to order. I told him I did. He placed my order over his headset, told me my total, took my money, and in just a few moments another man came outside with my food and condiments. The man delivering the food was dressed nicely and did not appear to be in uniform. I'm guessing he was the owner.

I was in and out of Chick-Fil-A in a flash. When I drove up I was certain it was going to take 20 minutes to get my food. The people serving were very polite and when I left the man wished me a "Merry Christmas". It was a great experience.

I LOVE Chick-Fil-A! My husband and I eventually want to own a few (when we decide to "settle down").

Their food is wonderful, and for the quality, the price is not that bad. Plus, most locations usually have family night where they give away free kids meals.

But my favorite part? Here is a 40+ year old company who has stuck to their Christian principles. They will not open on Sunday (why do I always get in the mood for Chicken Minis on Sunday morning? I'll blame it on the pregnancy,lol), and they even play Christian music on their radio.

Great company.

I don't normally go to Chick-Fil-A because of their prices, but I love the fact that they are closed on Sundays and their kids' meals often include prizes such as Focus of the Family's Adventure's in Odessey CD ROMs - much better than the toys included in other chains' kids' meals!

We've been a few times recently because our girls got coupons for free kids' meals, and I participated in their free Coke and chicken sandwich coupon campaign a while back. We enjoyed our experience at our restaurant as well.

I sure wish they were open on Sunday. People are hungry then too. God doesn't exist, so why close the place down for no reason.
