Chick-fil-A, A Tyler Staple

in American Food

Chick-fil-A has become one of Tyler’s and indeed America’s favorite fast food restaurants. The first one opened in 1967 in Atlanta Georgia and there are now locations in nearly every state. As a company Chick-fil-A is involved with numerous charities and community outreach programs, including scholarship opportunities for employees, foster homes, and character building programs for area youth. The restaurants founder Truett Cathy is a profoundly religious man, who insisted that all his stores close on Sunday in order to allow his employees to attend church and spend time with their families, a policy that continues to this day.

The food concept is somewhat unique. The entire menu is centered around the store’s boneless chicken breasts, most often cooked with a slightly sweet batter. Every item they sell (except of course the delicious waffle fries), contains this essential ingredient, whether it be sandwiches, or salads. Obviously there is no beef or pork to be found on this menu. I can personally attest to the quality of their breakfast menu. The chicken biscuits are exquisite!

The food at Chick-fil-A is fresh, hot and generally much healthier than most of their competitors. The store prides itself on its customer service, and its neat clean appearance. There are numerous locations around Tyler Texas, and if you’re a devotee of CFA it’s a good idea to know where they are all located, because odds are good that if you use the drive through you’ll end up sitting in line for a while. Not because the service is bad, the store is just that popular in Tyler. Everything on the menu is worth waiting for however. Overall I’d give Chick-fil-A a four out of five stars, not because of any real criticism, I just like to leave room for growth.

So the next time you have to grab a quick, healthy and inexpensive lunch on the go, swing into one of Tyler’s numerous Chick-fil-As. For their locations, or for nutritional or company information, see their website at
