Chickfila at Quakerbridge- Milkshae Monday

chettad Jul 18, 2011 07:38 AM

The Chickfila at Quakerbridge Mall in Lawrence has a great promotion every Monday during the summer. Purchase a large milkshake (about $3.50) and get a free chicken sandwich or chicken nuggets. The milkshakes are sublime, creamy, frosty and nicely flavored- my fave are peach, banana and strawberry with whipped cream and a cherry. (also have vanilla and choc) Chicken sandwiches come in regular and spicey and are delish- pressure cooked in peanut oil, served on a toated bun with a pickle. Nothing soggy or creamy. Give it a try. Enjoy.

    Chick-fil-A sandwiches are probably the tastiest, and relatively healthiest, fast food meals you'll find. Very meaty, coating not too overwhelming, and tastes great. I don't particularly like the spicy version (which surprised me), possibly because the regular is so good, but that's just me. YMMV.

    Warning: don't go on Sunday. They're closed. (Read why on their website.)

      Seems like their regular chicken sandwich has 70 more calories than a McChicken.

        Possible, but I bet the fat and sodium is a lot less, and the protein more. And the flavor, well, there's no comparison.

          You could bet, and you'd probably be wrong. Or you could look it up, which I hope people who care about these things (health) actually do. I don't bother generally, because I know that the odd meal at a fast food joint doesn't impact my overall health, or the overall health of most people.

            I just did. Yes, there is more sodium, a surprise. But considering the Chick-fil-A is a third larger overall than the McChicken (look it up), with over double the protein, you're less likely to get two, or to fill up on the garbage sides. So per ounce, the CFA is better nutritionally, is less likely to lead to even worse nutrition, and tastes a whole lot better.
