There is so much ruckus over the new Chick-Fil-A opening in Hollywood, on Sunset and Highland to be exact. They're giving away free chicken for a year to the first 100 people (based on a confusing lottery system) but the real controversy is over their political stance on gay marriage.
A lot of people, especially those living near this new location, are not too happy about Chick-Fil-A's political agenda. Before knowing all this, I ate a ton of Chick-Fil-A as soon as it opened in downtown LA on Figueroa (long before this scandal hit the news).
I usually get the original chicken sandwich but I don't feel like fried chicken so I get the Charbroiled Chicken Club Sandwich. It's good...but not as good as the original. The spicy one is good too, but still not as good as the original.
The waffle fries are perfect to dip in all the different sauces that they give out. I prefer the Chick-Fil-A sauce. Whatever your politics, Chick-Fil-A has mastered the chicken sandwich but to a lot of people, this restaurant is just one of many. Others think that businesses can do whatever they want with the money that they make and that shouldn't be an issue when it comes to what they sell.
There are so many companies that are "anti-gay." Target donates to anti-gay movements as well as Best Buy, Urban Outfitters, A-1 Storage, and the list goes on. I say pick your battles. It's hard to boycott every single business that doesn't agree with your politics. I still boycott Abercrombie and Fitch from way back in the day and will never buy an A&F product. That's just me. Everyone has their own stance against specific businesses.
What are your thoughts on Chick-Fil-A?
