Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich - Interior

(This sandwich was purchased from the Chick-fil-A in the Philadelphia airport during a 16-hour layover, so take from that what you will.)

Looks: Browner, crispier, and flatter than the advertised sandwich. The pickles were only visible after some exploration. (Although the bottom of that chicken patty makes me want to rethink my rating…) 4 out of 5

Taste: I can understand why McDonald’s came out with their own “southern” chicken sandwich in order to try and replicate Chick-fil-A’s success. The chicken patty is very good – crunchy batter and juicy meat – although it doesn’t taste too different from the chicken that Burger King serves on their Chicken Tendercrisp sandwich, so there’s nothing especially unique about it, but soft bread + good chicken = happy mouth. (I don’t care too much for pickles, so I gave them to my one-year-old son. He had no comment.) 4.5 out of 5

    Chick-fil-a is awesome. They need to open shop in NY.

    I’m glad it tastes good; it looks terrible. But we all do whatever necessary on a 16 hour layover. Is there a sauce, or is it just bun, chicken, and pickles?

    Bun, chicken, pickles, and I think a little butter on the bun.

    It always looks like crap, and is usually pretty soggy from sitting in the little bag, but damn is Chick-Fil-A always tasty. And unlike most fast food, I never feel like crap after eating it.

    The fuck? It looks nothing like the picture and you rated it 4/5 on appearance???

    Chickfila has the absolute best tasting breaded chicken sandwiches in fast food, at least in Virginia.

    I have tried them all, BK, Wendys, KFC, if a drive thru makes a chicken sandwich I have tried it. I’ve been on-the-road in VA for 14 years for my job so I do a lot of drive-thru lunches.

    I agree it isn’t the best looking sandwich, but it is the best tasting chicken sandwich. There is a rumor that has gone around for some time that they soak the chicken in dill pickle juice, but I have never found anyone to confirm or deny this.
