    Re: Chick-fil-A is coming to Ankeny!

    Chik fil A is nothing special. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.

    My buddy went on a diet that included Chik-fil-a for lunch. Just get the broiled sandwich with the fruit cup and it is not bad at all. He lost a lot of weight that way.

    It's the newness or 'want what I can't have when I want it' factor. Chick fil a is relatively new to Iowa and will be very popular but some will get used to having it around whenever they want it. I compare it to In-N-Out Burger. I had it a couple of times in Cali visiting and would rave about how awesome it is and how I wish it was in the Midwest. Then I moved to Cali and one was less than a mile from me. After a while it wasn't all that great. I actually think In-N-Out is very overrated after living there. Many Californians agree.

    After I moved out of the dorms I ate at Chick-fil-A in the union or the original tiny Battles BBQ pretty much every weekday for lunch circa '98-'01.

    The #4 meal begs to differ.

    Your burger chain analogy doesn't stand up - how many hamburger chains are there? How many chicken sandwich chains are there?

    I am not saying it is about how many people eat burgers or love fast food. Nothing to do with that. But how many people do you hear say 'oh my ******* god i ******* love McDonald's! It's the best ******* burger!' You DO hear raves like that about food places that people don't have access to like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's. Culvers used to be similar to how Chick Fil A and In-N-Out get the 'omg it's sooooo good' comments but now they are way more prevalent and you don't hear it as much.

    I dont know if theyre demolishing it or just remodeling the existing structure, but something is soon on the one on jordan creek parkway as well

    I would disagree, mostly because i think BK's chicken is awful.

    Chik-fil-A is awesome. Prob the only reason Westdale Mall in Cedar Rapids hasn't shut down. That place has been there forever.
