The Chicken Wire

Chick-Fil-A almost feels out of place lined up next to KFC and Popeyes, but technically, what they offer us Monday through Saturday (insert eye roll) is indeed a form of fried chicken.

However, Chick-Fil-A fans (AKA everyone who isn’t a vegetarian) are passionate about their nuggets and waffle fries. We mean, have you ever gone to a Chick-fil-A when there wasn’t a line of cars wrapped around the building? Even if their parking lots are terribly designed, that doesn’t take away from the fast food joint’s success, running more than 2,200 locations worldwide.

So, what’s their secret sauce? (And no, we don’t mean the divine Chick-Fil-A sauce.) Their success comes from these hot commodities, and if you’re wanting to see other menu items, check out a full list of Chick-Fil-A prices.

Top Selling Menu Items
  • Spicy Chicken Sandwich – The perfectly spicy chicken patty sells like crazy and pairs well with an iced-cold lemonade.
    • Sandwich Only: $3.29
    • Combo (Sandwich, Waffle Fries, and Drink): $6.19
  • Chicken Biscuit – A recent addition to the menu, Chick-Fil-A’s breakfast Chicken Biscuit brings out the restaurant’s southern roots and tastes pretty darn good, too.
    • Biscuit Only: $2.19
    • Combo (Sandwich, Hash Browns, and Drink): $4.49
  • Chicken Nuggets – Arguably the most dunkable, delicious nuggets in the fast food game, Chick-Fil-A Nuggets are addicting.
