I'd never been to a stand-alone Chick-fil-A before. The chain started in the Greenbriar Shopping Center in Atlanta in 1967, and I'd only stopped by outlets in food courts. Stand-alone restaurants abound, though—like the one I visited in Metairie, LA, where at 11:45, the drive-thru line already wrapped around the building.
Always known for their chicken sandwiches, Chick-fil-A introduced a Spicy Chicken option to their menu only last month. I've long been a fan of Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich, and I wanted to see how Chick-fil-A's would compare.
