Finally, Las Vegas Has a Chick-fil-A
February 08, 2017 •
Yes, just what Las Vegas needed: another restaurant. But, wait! Chick-fil-A, the beloved fried chicken franchise, is in the process of opening up not one, not two, but three locations in the Las Vegas area. If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating at Chick-fil-A–and by the accounts of many who’ve eaten there, it is quite a pleasure–here’s what you need to know about the fast-food chicken chain.
Beef Need Not Apply
Take a quick look at Chick-fil-A’s menu, and you’ll quickly see that they’re serious about their chicken, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You’ll find only one beef item on this menu: a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich. Otherwise, it’s chicken sandwiches, chicken wraps, chicken fingers – grilled or fried, poultry is king on this restaurant’s menu. Some of the more interesting items include grilled nuggets, waffle fries, chicken noodle soup, and salads. For lighter fare, items like fruit cups and bagels should also be available.
More Sauces Than You Can Shake a Stick At
Most fast-food restaurants have at least a few sauces to complement your order, and Chick-fil-A is no different. That said, the chicken restaurant stands out in the number of sauces it provides (seven), and the wide of range of tastes it offers. You’ve got your regulars, like honey mustard and barbecue, and then you’ve got the slightly unusual, like Polynesian sweet and sour, garlic and herb ranch, and even Sriracha sauce. For those who decide to go with a salad, Chick-fil-A also offers a wide range of dressings. Drink-wise, you’ll have your regular selection of soft drinks, as well as a selection of milkshakes, frosted coffee, and frosted lemonade. And to top it all off, there’s ice cream and cookies for dessert!
Not Open on Sundays
As you can already see, Chick-fil-A isn’t like most fast-food restaurants, but there’s another way it stands out. If you’re craving some Chick-fil-A during weekend, you might have to wait it out, as the restaurant is closed on Sundays. This is a practice the restaurant has followed since the opening of the first Chick-fil-A in Hapeville, Georgia in 1946. The decision to close on Sundays came from the restaurant’s founder, Truett Cathy, who was inspired by his religious beliefs and the opinion that employees should have a day for themselves. Unlike other restaurants, the shop also closes on Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Three Locations in the Vegas Area
If you absolutely have to give Chick-fil-A a try, you’ll be happy to know that there are two recently opened locations already operating in Henderson, one located at 9925 Eastern Ave and the other at 460 N. Stephanie St. A third Chick-fil-A, located at Sahara Avenue and Rancho Drive in downtown Las Vegas, is set to open later in 2017. For Nevada residents, this is only the beginning of a Chick-fil-A takeover, with eight total restaurants set to open in the state within the next five years. Finally, we’ll be able to see what the rest of the country has been talking about!
