    So a crispy chicken meal and large lemonade and fries w chick fil a sauce. Just excellent. Huge drive thru line, maybe 25 minutes. Pickles on sandwich was odd but tasted good. Lemonade and fries were awesome. Spicy chicken had great flavor and was very hot and fresh. Everyone was polite. Even the other customers all seemed polite. Its far from my home but i would sure stop there again if i am close. My daughter tried the mac and cheese and she liked it. She has had their food many times, so no surprises for her.

    I was also late to the CFA bandwagon, and I only started when my wife began taking my daughters to eat there when they were young back in the mid to late '90s. I normally get a chicken wrap and some soup now, but their chicken strips used to be my staple for a long.

    I have been chastised severely for feeding two granddaughters their ice cream. I really like it and the kids did as well.
    Don't like it? Don't let grandpa have the baby and no supervision.

    Wow! Did they just make it up there? I'm from Georgia, so "I just tried it for the first time" seems alien to me.

    I will say, they lost some authenticity when they got rid of the cole slaw.

    I've only been one time and the meal was so tiny, I thought I got the kids menu by mistake.
    I'll never go back.

    My wife and I indulged in St George Utah on vacation in June.

    We had never been to one before, and since it's vacation I'm off my strict Vegetable Diet... Sooo...

    And It Was Awesome! The counter staff were amazing, positive, high energy, very courteous, and had a great sense of humor!!!

    If it wasn't for the mortgage, I would have applied for a job just because of the working atmosphere... :banana:

    Can't wait to find another one during our October Vaca!!!

    We always try to stop in when we get to an area that has one. The grilled chicken with cheese sandwich usually hits the spot.

    When I was a kid there were no stand alone Chik Fila’s around me. You could only find them at mall food courts. They would even give free samples of the chopped up chicken breasts. It was so good. They have come a long way since then.

    25 minutes in the drive thru, doesn't sound like Chik-Fil-A. I stop by on the way to work for spicy chicken biscuits. Double line almost to the street, but they constantly move. It might take 5 minutes. If they didn't have to make change, it would literally take less than five minutes.

    I get off the interstate and drive to CFA. It's on the left for me, so I'm in the left lane. It's amazing that if there are 8 cars in the lane ahead of me, most will give left turn signals and all file into the drive through.

    Go on a Sunday. The drive thru lines are very very short.
