I’d like to start today’s Every Day with Chick-fil-A Menu Tour post by first and foremost giving a shout out to my boy Colby (pictured above with Nick). When I first met Colby he was just like any other fast food drive-thru worker to me. These guys are a dime a dozen. There one week, gone the next. Easily distracted, untrustworthy, and unreliable.
How far Colby and I have come.
Since I’ve been back from Africa, Colby hasn’t missed a day of work. How do I know? He’s been there every day for me. Even when Kelsey served me my #1 Chick-fil-A Original Chicken Sandwich meal yesterday, Colby was there. Working the drive-thru. Taking orders. Putting in work. Being a man. That doesn’t go unnoticed, people.
So Colby, this post is dedicated to you. You’ve been asking about the blog for weeks now, so I hope you finally are able to get the recognition due you. Don’t let me down.
Now, on to today’s trip. One thing I would like to know is if Colby noticed I have been wearing the same blue shirt for the past three days. What’s that you say? It’s disgusting? You’re disgusting. Actually, I don’t even know you, so how can we possibly know that one another are disgusting? What if we both are hygienically savvy individuals who simply wear well between showers? So what if I haven’t showered since Monday? I rarely leave my house, and when I do, it’s to the comforting arms of a Chick-fil-A restaurant with employees like Colby who understand I can wear the same shirt three days in a row.
Furthermore, where I just came from in Africa, most of them would be perfectly happy to wear the same shirt three days in a row. So consider this my attempt at empathizing with my African brothers.
Now, where was I. Of course, today’s meal. So I’m working my way through the menu, and I had a #2 Chick-fil-A® Deluxe Chicken Sandwich meal, complete with medium Waffle fries and a 1/2 Regular, 1/2 Diet Dr. Pepper. Now that my tummy is on the mend, it’s back to Sweet Tea and Dr P for this kid.
On a tight schedule today so I had to take this one in a bag, as you can see. What I’m excited about for this trip is that I have never, ever ordered a #2 because why would I ever potentially ruin a delicious Chick-fil-A Original Sandwich with orange cheese and veggies? But I had no idea I could order Provolone on my sandwich! Which, admittedly, was not perceptive of me since I’ve had it on my grilled sandwich, but it never dawned on me to throw it on an original. Wow. Great call, Mr. Cathy, great call.
Chick-fil-A® Deluxe Chicken Sandwich Description: A boneless breast of chicken seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips, Green Leaf lettuce, tomato and American cheese. Also available on a Golden Wheat bun.
Normal Cost for the entire meal: $6.15
Nutritional Content for the Sandwich
I have the Waffle fries, drink, and sauce nutritional content listed HERE if you want to see those. Today again, I have to confess, I was famished. I don’t always eat the entire meal, I’ll be honest. Sometimes I only have half the bun or give some fries away. But man, this sandwich was really good with that provolone cheese on it, and I think it’s worth the extra 60 calories.
Here’s the other cool thing I learned today, and one of those small details and reasons why Chick-fil-A is the quintessential fast-food restaurant. I’m not a rabbit food guy with my sandwiches, so I had them take off the lettuce and tomato. Granted I got mine free, but I’m looking at the bill later, and had to catch this on iOS lore for the world to see:
Are you kidding me? They took off $0.15 because I didn’t order the lettuce and tomato? Dude. Now in the other chains’ defense, I have never looked closely at the bill to see if they do this. Quite frankly, I haven’t stepped foot in a McDonald’s or Arby’s or Burger King except for a milkshake in literally years. But I would be absolutely shocked if they discounted when people ordered no rabbit food.
So once again Chick-fil-A, you are the king of the chicken, master of the fast-food space, and we pay homage to your greatness. Of course, we know from whence that greatness derives, and for that, we take note.

You’re going to think this thing is rigged or something, but I just call ’em like I see ’em. Until tomorrow.
