I've been to many a Popeyes, McDonalds, Krystal's in places where there are drunk people, crack heads, and drug dealers and I have found those restaurants inevitably become not places you'd like to Dine In.

I have never been to a Chick Fil A which is anything but country wholesome... complete with developmentally disabled staff and beaming young people fresh from bible school.

Will it survive DC Chinatown?

Or will I be able to buy a sandwich and have the clerk also sell me a loosey?

Not sure but it has to be soon… look in the windows when you walk by. It looks completely done and ready to go.

I hope this location doesn’t suck

Does the Columbia Heights location suck? That might be a good measuring stick for how this one will turn out, being in another dense neighborhood with heavy foot traffic.

Can't believe only now decided to taste Popeyes and Chik Fil A chicken sandwich while visiting my son in Atlanta.

Absolutely delicious!

Dude, thanks for reminding me about trader joes. I just moved up here and keep doing aldi. I forgot trader joes is a good bargain option too!

Trader joe's is the $3 store so very affordable. Everything they sell is delicious.

Their prepared food is tasty and often imported from Europe. Desserts are great.

So are their sodas, nuts, breads, veggies and cheeses .

Chick-fil-a is homophobic. As a progressive city people should not buy things from them. We should all stand together for every group.

Shut up. My gay friends and family absolutely don’t give a shit. It’s fake allyship that should be stood up to.

Well someone is triggered. I’m not your counselor, go discuss that energy with a mental health professional. Chick Fil A is homophobic and as a gay man I know what they company has funded. I’m not an ally, and clearly neither are you.

u/LilInterweb is right. it's a homophobic organization and your money directly contributes to right wing policies. plus, i'm gay, and all my gay friends and family do care, and so should yours.
