Southern Style Chicken at McDonald's?

Has anyone else tried the new Southern Style Chicken sandwich at McDonald's? It's very reminiscent of Chick-fil-A's signature chicken sandwich--right down to the 2 sliced pickles!

  1. I tried it a couple weeks ago while picking up Happy Meals for the kids and it was surprisingly good.

    1. I agree. Also (and I've thought that this was related to my digestive system) it doesn't give me heartburn like Popeye's and KFC does. Is it the lack of garlic powder or some other spice?

      1. I've only tried the s/s chicken biscuit at breakfast, which is good enough that I've eaten three already. But the chicken patty (which is apparently breast meat, not pieces-parts) varies in size from visit to visit.

        1. I tried it last night, but I didn't really like it. The breading was weird. My roommate claimed it was the closest thing to Chickfila... but sadly, I didn't agree.

          1. I had one this afternoon while running errands. It's clearly trying to be a Chick-Fil-A, but while it's by some distance the best chicken sandwich I've ever had from McDonalds (whose chicken stuff is historically gross), it's not a patch on a Chick-Fil-A. However, the nearest McDonald's is about 3/4 of a mile from my house. The nearest Chick-Fil-A is about 30 miles away, in Burlington, MA. So there's that.
