This chain got a mention on the news last nite. There are apparently 3 in the LA area. Anything to it?

  1. Chick-Fil-A is a personal fav of mine...I think they have the best chicken nuggets bar none! Good sandwiches and waffle fries as well! A shame there aren't more in the SoCal area...the 2 I know of are in the South Bay (SB Galleria in Redondo Beach and Del Amo in Torrance). Another unusual quirk is that they are all closed on Sundays due to the founder's beliefs.

      I can barely contain my excitement at finding LA area Chick-Fil-A restaurants...being originally from South Carolina, their sandwiches used to be an absolute staple of my diet. On a recent trip to Atlanta, I brought two sandwiches back with me to share with friends who picked me up at the airport. Little did I know I was only a drive away. Thanks much mcmichael.
      Now if we could only get a Bojangles here, the genius of southern fast food could truly shine...just think - biscuit sandwiches all day!...

    2. This was a high school favorite on shopping excursions to Cerritos mall. I just did a search on Yahoo and it's still there! Tasty chicken sandwiches with battered & fried chicken breast. And yes, I remember those waffle fries. So yummy.

      1. Yes, one of the best fried chicken sandwiches around and the waffle fries are good too. My friends and I used to eat the Cerritos Mall locale all the time. Such good stuff. When I get the chance, I now eat at the one at Del Amo Mall in Torrance.

        Also, the lemonade and lemon meringue pie are beyond fast-food quality.

        1. 1. The Galleria at South Bay

          17.51 miles from the center

          2. Del Amo Fashion Center
          Erwin Arevalo

          1. They are everywhere in the South, and I mean everywhere. Every single mall has them, and there are occasionally free standing locations in some cities. The food is pretty good for fast food.
