Alright, so I’ve eaten at Chick-fil-A probably four or five times. All except one time has been while I was a college student. And all meals have been at WSU… Each time I’ve been disappointed. But, yesterday after I forgot my sandwich I caved and ate there. There were lots of other choices in the student center, but none of them were open. Ugh.
Alright, fair disclaimer. Everyone I know not only loves Chick-fil-A, but it’s like a cult following obsession. So apparently this stuff is good and I just don’t have a taste for it. To be fair, I’m not really a fried chicken person. I do like chicken nuggets, but mostly after I’ve been drinking. Occasionally I’ll get a craving for McDonald’s crunchy chicken nuggets, but I’m not entirely sure those are meat anyway….
I ordered an 8 piece order of nuggets, and order of fries and a drink. Totaled about $6. At the Chick-fil-A at WSU everything’s ready for you. You have a limited number of options (all that was there when I was there were nuggets – 8 and 12 pieces, and chicken sandwiches, and then of course fries).
The nuggets aren’t disgusting or anything. I just like my nuggets crunchy. These are more soft. They’re little balls of chicken (wait, that sounds way wrong) that are battered and fried, I’d assume. The chicken tastes good, but I’m left wishing for some crunch.
The fries, on the other hand are good. They’re nice and crunchy.
The thing I like is they’re not stingy with sauce, and even offer it. NOT something the a-holes at McDonald’s do. They try to charge you for sauce. Effers. Wait, digressing.
Alright, for those of you avid Fil-A-ers, tell me what I’m missing. There are some people at work who go to WSU every few months just to eat there. They swear it’s delicious. I don’t think I’ve had the same un-crunchy nuggets by coincidence. I think that’s just how they are served.
Nugs ‘n Fries
They look crunchy, right? They’re just not. Sad face.
I dipped both in buffalo sauce. Mmmmmm… Buffalo sauce.
