    Consistently the most efficient and friendliest customer service you will find any fast food place anywhere. Worth the trip just for the waffle fries and diet lemonade.

    Only location in the city! Although lines are long they move fast! Surprised to hear it's closed on Sunday's. I like the chicken fingers w all the dipping sauces!

    Their spicy chicken sandwich is bomb. I could eat like 5 in a row. Pretty good choco chip cookie too. Follow them on Twitter for specials and deals.

    Order the Strawberry milkshake for desert. You will enjoy it after a late night out in River North.

    Not as friendly as the ones in the south but it will do. Stingy with their sauces so be sure to ask for plenty. Spicy chicken sandwich is the way to go.

    If you come for breakfast, get a chicken biscuit. Put mayo on the biscuit and dip it in strawberry jam. Sounds weird but it tastes amazing. Trust me, I'm an expert.

    Delicious spicy chicken sandwich, very moist, even without cheese, best type of fries and they're unsalted which I prefer! Great food!

    Great sandwiches, and even though it's a chain, it's a rara avis in the Chicago area. So try it out if you get a chance.

    This CHICKFILA is so wonderful, they are independently owned and are not anti-gay. They give back to the community in endless ways, will always come back.

    The Chick-fil-A sauce goes on everything, and is worth trying on EVERYTHING. Especially the waffle fries and The Original.

    Their chicken sandwiches are better than KFC. Also I enjoyed Chick-Fil-A fries way more than any other fastfood chains.

    Test market location for oatmeal breakfast, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Peach will be the summer shake. First ever chick fil a to have a dual fry line in the kitchen ( designed for fast service

    Spicy chicken deluxe sandwich. Even in its to-go form, it looks good (not flatten)! Yum! You don't need hot sauce for this.

    As an adult who order kids meals for myself, it's awesome that Chick-fil-a offers to sub out the toy for free ice cream!

    The fabled chicken sandwich is no better than McDonalds southern style chicken sandwich. The peach shake, however, has real bits of peach in it.

    Staff is not as pleasant as what chick-fil-a usually holds as a standard. Didn't hear one, "my pleasure". It was the typical "fast food" feel.

    Who cares if they are anti gay. Honestly, if you choose not to eat somewhere because you disagree with the owners in one way or another then you'll never eat anywhere.
