    Think long and hard before answering this. I've never had Chick-fil-A.

    Whose chicken is better: KFC or Chick-fil-A?

    Did Harlan Sanders' and Truett Cathy's chicken paths ever cross.

    Hate their politics, love their chicken sandwiches.

    And Xan, Chick-fil-A by several football field lengths.

    I wonder if Chick-Fil-A would have grown as much had Cathy kept the original name -- the Dwarf Grill.

    It's now the Dwarf House, and it's in Hapeville, Ga., right across the street from what was the Atlanta Ford plant. I know this only because one spring break I had to make an emergency auto repair stop at that exit, and we went to wait and eat at the Dwarf House because it was right next door. Perhaps true to Cathy's religious beliefs, during dinner a minister's wife from Wisconsin struck up a conversation with us and slowly took us down a deep, deep conservative Jesus rabbit hole.

    The food was good, though.

    Hands down the best service of any fast-food joint.

    I agree with all of the above. Chick-fil-A has the best fast food chicken I've eaten.

    Almost creepy and cult-like how good it is. It's like they chant "My pleasure to serve you" for hours on end during the training sessions.

    Setting aside the religiosity and the food quality, their "Eat Mor Chikin" marketing campaign was genius.

    Courage of his convictions. There's not an MBA on Earth who would propose a business model for a fast-food franchise that includes being closed on Sunday.

    I feel so guilty, for so many reasons, every time I bite into one of their sandwiches. Which is a lot.
