Chick-Fil-A was born out of this diner.. In Short This is where it all began. Chick-Fil-A was born in 1946 in this tiny, 24-hour curbside diner a few miles from the bustling Atlanta airport. Truett Cathy invented the Original Chick-Fil-A, the South’s famous sandwich (fried chicken breast, two pickles, buttered bun) right here. And while the outside looks like your typical location, the inside feels like no other Chick-Fil-A with counter service and the original diner menu. So skip the drive-through, saddle up and order what got ‘em there.
No bones about it: crispy chicken sandwiches, buttered biscuits and signature waffle fries.. In Short This fast-food restaurant lures diners with the promise of fresh ingredients and a dependable menu. The marquee Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich is a fried breast served on a toasted bun with sliced dill pickles; other items include nuggets, strips, salads and wraps, all featuring the beloved bird. Health-conscious customers avoiding fried food can order the char-grilled chicken sandwich--same concept, one third the fat.
