    I never said they were a bad company @Ken Anderson just that I haven't eaten there after looking at the menu nutrition online.

    I was just also explaining to Honey and Holly what it is. To say it's just a fast food place wouldn't give the whole picture

    If their nutritional value was a little better I would probably give it a try. They are few and far between here though and I don't think I've ever seen one near the places my daughter goes.

    I know, @Chrissy Cross. I just wanted to mention that for the sake of balance. A lot of people equate disagreement with hatred and they're not necessarily the same thing.

    I understand. I didn't read the Wikipedia article just gave it as a link. I have nothing against them. I'm not one to boycott any food places for whatever reason.

    Actually In-n-out has bible references on some of its cups, etc.



    Bible versesEdit

    Bible reference on wrapper of an In-N-Out Double-Double
    In-N-Out prints bible citations in small print on areas of packaging. The practice began in the 1980s during Rich Snyder's presidency,[55] a reflection of the Christian beliefs held by the Snyder family.

    Anyway, back to Chick fil A....didn't mean to hijack with another fast food place. Maybe I'll do a review of in-n-out later.

    We have to drive a bit to get to Chick Fil-A. I had a coupon so we went and the drive thru line was inncredibly long. When I think about it it was the Grand Opening. Never made it back there.

    We ate at Chick-fil-A today. It was hugely busy, probably because it's new and the first one in Maine. It turns out the manager is from Millinocket, where I live, although he hasn't lived in Millinocket in a while. The service was good, particularly given the very long line, and the food was good.

    The lines are always long at in-n-out unless you get there when it opens...but it moves quickly. It's a very simple menu.

    I never seen an In-N-Out, so guess we don't have one. The closest we have to it is probably Carl's I think. I'll take Bobert there so he can get their enormous burgers, and I will get a couple of orders of fried zucchini for myself.

    We have lots of Chic-fil-A's, but I'm not a chicken kind of gal. I guess I just ate to much of it while raising my family. But I do take Bobert there, and Izzy too if we are out and about.

    They're nothing like Carl's. I'm not fond of Carl's, have only eaten there when I was doing Atkins and they came out with a no or low carb burger. Too bad though because I have one within walking distance...about 1/4 of a mile.

    The Spicy Chicken Sandwich, and my wife had the plain Chicken Sandwich, I think. We were there too late for breakfast, but I prefer their breakfasts. I think I like everything on their breakfast menu that I've had, and I've had most of their breakfast items. My favorites are the breakfast burritos though. They are better than the breakfast burritos I've had at other fast food places.

    It sounds good. I just had issues with their sodium..not that other fast food places don't have high sodium food, they do but I just remember looking at the nutrition and thinking....nope.

    Sodium = Salt = Salt of Life, and life is good. You can't go wrong there. More seriously, while Chick-fil-A is one of the better fast food places, it is a fast food place, and it's not a good idea to eat too many of your meals at fast food places. The only fast food place we have in Millinocket is McDonalds, but I go there maybe once every two or three months. Jared may have lost weight eating Subway sandwiches, but then he went to prison and I hear he's gaining it all back.

    Sodium is what I watch the most...just a quirk with me. It keeps my BP low without meds and I just feel better.

    I can tell when I've had too much...don't feel well. Maybe all in my head but to me it's real.

    I will look at their nutrition again since it's been a couple years, maybe it's changed. If it has I'll give it a try when I'm around that area.

    I prefer chicken to hamburgers anyway.....except an in-n-out. :)
