Chick-fil-A & Dwarf House - Let's talk tea - Is it a Southern thing?
I had a tip from a Georgia native that Chick-fil-A serves good Southern sweet tea? Any opinions?
Is there anything else worthwhile on the menu? In the link to the website below the hand-spun (whatever that means) milkshakes sound good. Are they?
In the Atlanta area Chick-fil-A has full service restaurants, Dwarf House. I hear the biscuits and gravy are good. Are the biscuits and gravy at Chick-fil-A the same as Dwarf House?
For the most part, Chick-Fil-A is very tasty. For some reason, most of the times that I want to go there it's Sunday and they're closed. Their breakfasts are definitely worth getting, as are the classic chicken sandwich and the lemonade. We have ones that are in malls and ones that are in standalone locations, and the standalones are generally far superior.
Around here in the Phoenix area, almost every standalone one also has an In-N-Out Burger very close by. Talk about the best of both worlds!
I have to say that Chick-fil-A is by far the best fast food place to eat. I live in Nebraska and unfortunately there are none here, but when I visit family in North Carolina that is the only place that I for sure have to go to.
The chicken sandwiches are the best....and the sweet tea is to die for.
The Dwarf House IS the original Chick-fil-a. My DH and BIL used to work there when they were teens. I used to eat there a ton when I was a child. The first date DH and I went on was to the Dwarf House. It is across the street from the Ford Motor Plant in Hapeville, GA.
CFA to me is NOT as good as the Dwarf House. Mr. Cathy's children own the CFA franchises or should I say "they split the profits".
Here, in the south, when you say "tea" you don't have to specify if you want sweet but you DO have to if you want it unsweet.
In Georgia, it's pronounced swee'tea (one word). And you know someone's truly from Georgia when they start tellin' you their mama's recipe for swee'tea. I order it half and half (half sweet, half unsweet).
I have a notable intolerance for fast food, but have always survived CFA. I liked their chicken salad sandwiches for a light snack.
The first CFA was in Hapeville, GA, just north of ATL Hartsfield airport, also home of Jeff Foxworthy, for what that's worth.
LOVE sweet tea! It's been a few years since I've had Chick-Fil-A so I can't remember if it was especially good or not, but it probably was because I remember always ordering it.
I just checked out their website and they have a location in Roseville and Fairfield. I wonder if those locations serve sweet tea...
Let me know for sure, but I think they do serve sweet tea at all locations.
I'll likely be enjoying some Chick fil A tomorrow at the NC State home opener in Raleigh! The beauty of southern football - you can even get a Chick fil A sandwich at the game. Chick fil A are huge sponosrs of the ACC and SEC.
Chick-fil-A is likley my very favorite fast food chain. They do have really good freshly brewed sweet tea. In the south, that's really the standard when it comes to iced tea - sweet tea is the way to go. I personally love the nuggets and waffle fries at CFA too. Their sandwiches are good as well. And, the chicken biscuits served at breakfast ROCK! The service is always above par for fast food service.
My mom has tried the shakes and says they are quite good. If you're having a party, the nugget trays are a great deal.
Really, you can't go wrong at the CFA. In the south, they are a main stay. And, you have to respect a company that chosoes to close on Sundays over another chance for the almighty dollar.
