I just wonder b/c people always run from chain type resturants:

Does anyone have an even close or comparibly close fried chicken sandwhich as Chik-fil-a? That stuff must have drugs inside.

Although I won't be making it over there anytime soon, I am glad to see a new Chik-fil-a concept. I will have to check that out. There customer service is unparralled by other resturants.

I really like Chick Fil A... much in the same way I like Target.

I try to minimize my shopping at Target, but it's harder with Chick fil A if we need to grab a quick bite because so many other fast food places offer less healthy options. For us, it's pretty much Chick Fil A or Wendy's if we need to grab drive-thru food.

We've taken to ordering breakfast sandwiches for lunch at the Starbucks drive-thru in an attempt to broaden our available options, so we're trying.

It's a shame that businesses have to support causes that may well alienate paying customers. *sigh*

I am glad that Cameron Village is finally getting one, though.

You should try living a block away from Target. I went twice yesterday, and couldn't resist another Chick-Fil-A run after reading this thread

When my sister, who is a lesbian, stops driving from Manhattan to New Jersey for Chick-Fil-A, I'll quit eating there . (Please note I'm being tongue in cheek... neither of us could ever give up CFA no matter how close minded they may be!!!!) I like the location because it's easier to get in/out of than North Hills and is another option instead of going to Crossroads. Perfect location for lunch during the work day for me as well!

Now there are TWO reasons to go there: the Library and the SUPER-CHick-Fil-A. Love IT!

I think Cameron Village is more than a strip mall - it's like several little strip malls joined together with nice sidewalks, benches, and landscaping that make it pleasant to stroll about. And there are more reasons to go besides "shopping" (assuming trinkets/clothes/etc): There are not only the library and (soon) Chick-Fil-A (I can't wait!!), but a Post Office, a grocery store (HT), a pharmacy (Rite-Aid), an ABC (liquor) store, and Cat Banjo (with frequent events if you're into animal rescue and adoption). Furthermore, you have walking distance access to Hillsborough Street and all it offers in that area. (Locopops!) I do think it's worthy of considering as a good place to visit or as a place near which to live as there is more than just the typical strip mall shopping. (I do not work for CV )

Don't forget Penzey's, Goodberry's and Fresh Market, as well as Accipiter. Then there's Cafe Carolina, Village Draft House, and Piccolo Italia. Oh and Bailey's will replace watch batteries for free (including the battery). They ask for a donation to a charity, which changes each month, but a donation is not necessary.

As far as CFA, I really don't care for their chicken - but their milkshakes are awesome. I like the milkshakes at Cookout just as well, though, and usually get mine there instead.
