Dreamland Bar-B-Que isn't the only treat I feel in love with during my time down south.  Chick-fil-A is an institution and I was lucky to be introduced to it during my travels.  Although I'd never had it or heard of it prior Chick-fil-A is a national chain, the second largest fast food chicken restaurant chain, with over 1,500 restaurants in 39 states.  Their mission statement is simple: Be America's best quick-serve restaurant.  I know I'm not the first to say 'mission accomplished'.  There's a reason why this gem has proliferated.

Your first time in forget about calorie counts and order the original meal.  Have a healthier Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich the next time around!  Here's what you need to get to have the true Chick-fil-A experience:
  1. Chicken Sandwich - A boneless breast of chicken (this is real chicken, not fast food chicken) seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. Also available on a Golden Wheat bun.
  2. Waffle Potato Fries - A crowd pleaser.
  3. Sweet Tea - If you've never had it before the sweetness will be overwhelming at first, but you'll oddly come back for more.
  4. Don't forget the Chick-fil-A dipping sauce - A tangy honey mustard with a tinge of BBQ flavor. 
They have breakfast too.  Don't miss the Chick-n-Minis, bite-sized chicken nuggets nestled in mini yeast rolls lightly painted with a honey butter spread.  Yum.

In the great state of Minnesota you have to visit Coffman Union at the University of Minnesota to get your fix. Make sure you look at the establishment's hours before you head over there as they vary in accordance with the campus population.  And don't try to get a delicious sandwich on Sunday... all franchises are closed.  The originators of the brand and its famous chicken are devout Baptists and still believe in the day of rest.
