Chick-fil-A: Came here for the food, not the religion or politics

Diana Chan February 18, 2019 burger, California, Fast Food

Chick-fil-A has tons of controversy surrounding this American fast food chain. The companies values are influenced by religious values of it’s founder and do close on Sundays. With over 2,200 locations in the US and Canada, they are still expanding and there’s tons of controversy that has popped up. I respect everyone’s differentiating options and values, but I just like to each chicken.


Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich

This classic sandwich has a boneless seasoned breast of chicken that is hand-breaded and cooked in peanut oil, then served in a buttered bun with 2 dill pickles. Good and simple.

Chick-fil-A Deluxe Sandwich

If you get your sandwich a deluxe, they add green leaf lettuce, tomato and American Cheese. I prefer it with the extra veggies for a pop of colour and some vegetables.

Spicy Chicken Sandwich

They also have a spicy chicken sandwich with added blend of peppers to the hand-breaded mixture. I was surprised it packed a punch. If you like spicy, you’ll really enjoy this.

Waffle Potato Fries

How can you not love these? They are so fun to eat. When it’s fresh, its crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. If you wait too long, they go soggy.


The chicken strips are from the breast meat, marinated, seasoned, hand-breaded and then pressure cooked in peanut oil. When it comes out, its ok. Not that crispy but it is meaty and tender. Don’t forget the dipping sauces because there are so many kinds to choose from.

Chick-fil-A Nuggets

These are essentially like the chicken strips but in smaller bite-size pieces.


There are 7 sauces to choose from and it’s like an adventure wanting to try them all in one visit.

  • Chick-fil-A Sauce
  • Polynesian Sauce
  • Honey Mustard Sauce
  • Garlic and Herb Ranch Sauce
  • Zesty Buffalo Sauce
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Sauce

Of all of them, my husband and I really like the original Chick-fil-A sauce. He also liked the sweet Polynesian sauce and I liked the zesty buffalo sauce for an extra kick of heat.

Cookies and Cream Milkshake

This has cookies and cream hand spun the old fashioned way with ice cream. Then it is topped with whipped cream and a cherry. At 610 calories, milkshakes really pack a punch and definitely not for those on a diet.

Final Thoughts

That’s all the items my husband and I shared during one trip to Chick-fil-A. We made a good dent in the menu and were bursting from the seams. They make a solid chicken sandwich and you must get it with the waffle fries.

    That looks really good.I think a company can operate any way it sees fit. It’s up to the customer whether they wish to patronize it or not. I have not tried any of their food yet. I didn’t know that there was one in Vancouver.

    @ Jayda,

    I believe this one is in California, as noted by the California tag at the very top of the write-up.

    I was confused too, thinking this is a Canadian store. Diana didn’t provide any references to country or location so it was indeed confusing.

    I believe the first Chick-fil-A store to start up in Canada will be in Toronto early this year.
