Love Chick-fil-A sandwiches. The best I ever had! Wish we had one in the tri-valley. Had my first one in Virginia while on vacation. Only place I could get one in CA, until now, is CalPoly campus or Fresno. Heard there's one now in San Jose? The food is great, resturants clean and service friendly and efficient. Politics aside - the food is the best!

Ruth - first had Chick-fil-A sandwiches in Ft. Worth in 1979 and agree they are delicious. However, " Politics aside" is a little bit of a cop out - I am taking a stance when a company says that they take the Bible definition of marriage as......you eat there if you agree and you don't eat there if you don't agree... personally, I will be foregoing deliciousness in favor of following a real christian creed of loving all loving human beings.

Chic-fil-A is a FRANCHISE. The corporation and its franchisees give lots of money and food to charity and during disaster relief. The anti-homosexual comments were made by its owner as an individual - not during company business. As an American, he still has the right to say what he believes (although Obama is working hard to abolish that).
Funny how a lot of people have problem with this business, including the douche-bag who intimidated a poor low-level employee on video. But they have no problems with a company like Apple who makes their product overseas in the G-D China with sweatshop conditions and doesn't do anything to "give back."
