Chick-fil-A - Jesus done right!

"If you work at Chick-fil-A we don't require that you have a relationship with the Lord and Jesus," Cathy said. "We just ask that you make your business decisions according to biblical principles."

Chick fil A is a great restaurant.

In'n'Out is similar -- owned privately by a Christian family, Fast Food Nation praised the company for starting their workers at $8.25/hr with benefits (as opposed to McDonald's which keeps people at minimum wage until they quit) -- managers make $80K a year. In addition they commit to healthy food -- no microwaves, freezers or heat-lamps, fresh potatoes for the fries, etc. Yes, they print Bible notations (John 3:16) on the underside of their cups and fry bags -- but there are no quotes, just verse numbers, which lets customers draw their own conclusions. And their burgers are crazy delicious.

Chik-Fil-A hates vegetarians
But, of course, there's loads of other places for me to eat. I once found a packet of Polynesian sauce, it was awesome!

That's interesting, nathan. I've heard of In'N'Out restaurants before, and heard many good things about their food, but had no idea about the people behind it. I like that they let people interpret the stuff their own way, that's cool. I find their methods of making food neat, too-if I ever come across one of those places I may have to stop in for a bite.

As for this Chick-fil-A place-private business, they're allowed to do whatever they want.

Chick-fil-A rocks! We just got one a few months ago here (in Kansas) and people freaked out. More are starting to pop up in nearby cities.

I actually think it's cool they're closed on Sundays.

This thread speaks to the two great American obsessions: Jesus and fast food.

Just kidding guys.

I think it's cool that they're closed on Sundays too. Nothing wrong with that.

Does anyone else remember Jimmy Carter appearing in their commercials way back when or am I imagining things?

I've never eaten at one as they're not kosher but they do seem to be all over the place now.

I always love the site on Sundays whenever we drive by a shopping mall, in a city near us, that has dozen fast food chains and restaurants out front. All of them very busy and stuck in the middle is an empty Chik-fil-A with those words underneath the sign: Closed on Sundays.

Taking a complete day off, a Sabbath-Time, for worship, rest, and time with family/friends is something, I think, we need.

I have some friends, who live out West, who have told me how good the food is at In'n'Out. We don't have one here in South yet. I keeping hoping they will move East.

Their website is worth checking out.

I remember when nothing was open on Sundays...and I'm not that old. I'm not a religious person by any means, but I think an "off" day is good. Nowadays stores, restaurants etc. are open even on holidays, which is ridiculous.

I fully agree. Love the work ethic and all that, but an occasional rest is never a bad thing, either.
