    Simply put, it is their clientele.

    If McDonald's kept the McRib available 365 days a year we wouldn't have this problem.

    I had one of their new sandwiches. It was damn good. A bit different, but every bit as good as Chick-Fil-A.

    I had the spicy one. It wasn't really spicy, but just enough to keep it from being bland.

    Served the same way with just a pickle. Bigger piece of meat on the one I had at least. Great bun. Meat appeared to be cooked exactly how Chick does it.

    Yup, pickles are gross, but fun to flick out the window when passing that stopped school bus with it's stoopid red lights flashing and whack some little tyke right in her ear.

    It's a damn chicken sandwich. Not anything special. I agree it's all about who's buying them. I could care less about a yard bird sandwich. Go to Culver's theirs is just as good and I don't need a built proof vest to get one.

    I've made an effort to try the sandwich twice. The first time I waited in the drive through for 15 minutes before getting to the sign stating that they were sold out. The second time I saw cars stacked up back into the street and cars trying to get in the line from about three directions.

    I decided that the fried chicken sandwich from the Asian food hall about 300 yards away is almost certainly just as good, if not better, and doesn’t require the same hassle. And it’s better than Chik Fil A.

    Because the media is pumping them up to drive people away from Chick Fil A since they have been programmed to think they are anti-gay.
