Chick-fil-A: Menu
thanks bob,as i said in my reply to barbara,might need a tray or two to get a feel for the place!!.my sole concern would be that the food is good,the service good & they support animal welfare in terms of who,where & how they source the products.i'm sure that,just as in the uk,there are more than enough institutions/laws to cover the corporate attitude side of things your side of the pond.
don't have any experience of the company so would be wrong of me to comment beyond what i've said.

cheers frank,don't worry,i don't do politics & certainly wouldn't comment on a company i have no knowledge of.
everyone seems to rate it very highly food/service wise which is quite impressive for a fast food joint.some lessons to be learnt our side of the pond! must give it a try next time i'm over there

No need for anyone to comment one way or the other Harry....Ones chooses to eat (do business) at the joint, or one chooses not to eat (do business) there. ~~ Nuff said!!!

Fun!

Just a quick note: the anniversary dinner was wonderful. Red Lobster is a good place for those of us in the middle of the country-so far from the sea. I went for the coconut shrimp, and was pleased!! Everyone was so nice to wish us well for our anniversary. Thanks again.

Chick-fil-A: Menu
Since this line was breached: They do make an incredible chicken sandwich and I'm all for anyone practicing their religion. We have many people of many religions in my place of work and there is rarely any controversy because everyone treats everyone with respect. I love the diversity at my work and in my city. I start becoming unhappy when that courtesy is not extended and people within any environment spew intolerance, which is defined as "unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect contrary opinions or beliefs, persons of different races or backgrounds, etc."

As good as the sandwich is, I cannot morally support the disrespect of any culture or group. If I go to a deli and am told to leave because of my cross necklace, I won't be supporting it either.

I guess I may get a strike for this. Well....Okay. My apologies in advance for anyone I have offended.
