“Excellent fast-food service but over-priced for quality”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Management has trained its employees well. Very mannerly and courteous. Average-tasting fast food and a bit overpriced. Try to get them to say "You're welcome." Homosexual friends who have worked there have been fired for petty infractions. Want Chick Fil A on Sundays? Too bad, they're not open for business...but contractors are allowed to work inside on Sundays. Strange morality.

“Best Fast-Food Place Around”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I'm always amazed at the volume of people that visit this place. The drive-through is constant, non-stop cars for hours on end!!

My only complaint is that they changed their salads. We now rarely visit the place as those chicken n strip salads were all we ordered!! Tried all 3 new ones and nope--not the same.

Very friendly staff and still a top-notch operation!!

“Fido friendly--their pleasure.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were traveling home from vaca and 10 hours in with only an hour until we were home. We stopped here and were pleased to see tables in the shade. I set up with our mini dachshund at a table while the rest of the crew went in to order. An employee came out with a dish of water for our girl and asked if she could have a dog treat. Another reason to love Chick Fil A.

“Good Service”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Typical Chick Fil A restaurant with very polite servers. I have found this location to be one of the "fastest service" locations both in the drive thru and at the counter. The Manager's often work the drive through as well as the counter so they know what is going on. My most recent visit the staff working the dining room was a bit behind in keeping the tables clean. But overall this is one of the better locations of the chicken chain.
