As somebody who doesn’t eat beef unless it is halal (I am picky about how to eat beef), the only non-halal meat I consume outside of the home is chicken.

1. Chick-Fil-A

Is there even a reason necessary for this? Chick-Fil-A’s quality of chicken compares like no other fast food restaurant. Their chicken is always juicy and slightly tender (though I have never tried their grilled chicken). You might bite down on their chicken with the strips perpendicular to the bite — and you won’t even break a sweat to separate the meat. The only issue I have is their buns are too thin in some instances.

2. Wendy’s

The first time I tried Wendy’s was early July. I tried their Spicy Chicken sandwich and was thoroughly impressed at how piping hot it was when I took my first bite. It was significantly warm up to the last bite. I tried it again at a different location a few weeks back and though it wasn’t the same as my first experience, I still noted it to be significantly better than other locations.

3. Checkers

One of these opened up ten minutes away from me. I recall avoiding Checkers last year in Buffalo Niagara International Airport because of the somewhat tacky checkered design. I decided to give the place a shot. The serving size was surprising. Slightly smaller than other competitors’ offerings, I understood then why the price was so cheap. The chicken didn’t disappoint though.

I just wish fast food restaurants would stop throwing black pepper at their sandwiches and calling it spicy. That’s fucking weak.

I don’t eat at Whataburger, Buffalo Wild Wings, McDonald’s, Burger King, Raising Cane’s, Carl Jr’s/Hardee’s, pretty much any other fast food place because the chicken is never tender enough to get a clean bite and requires to much effort to rip off from the main piece. Chick-Fil-A’s spoiled me.

A new favorite addition of mine is Charley’s Philly Steaks, which I tried last year at Atlanta’s international airport and enjoyed the Chicken Buffalo. One opened inside the mall ten minutes from me. I enjoyed the meal which help up the fond memory I have of that first meal back in Atlanta.
