The Most Expensive Items You'll Find On The Chick-Fil-A Menu

While most fast-food joints are known for their burgers, Chick-fil-A sets itself apart from the crowd by specializing in a different protein: chicken. Known for its chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, this Atlanta-based restaurant has been nominated as "America's favorite restaurant" for eight consecutive years, according to the NY Post.

So, what helps Chick-fil-A stand above all the other fast-food chains? According to Forbes, Chick-fil-A's success can be largely attributed to its work culture, which is primarily based on Christian values. Ever since 1946, Chick-fil-A has been closed on Sundays. This decision was made by founder Truett Cathy to allow employees a day of relaxation and an opportunity to attend church.

The extensive menu also keeps loyal customers coming back for more. From mac & cheese and chicken noodle soup to fruit cups and hash brown scramble burritos, there is much more at Chick-fil-A than the obvious chicken sandwich. If your mouth is currently watering and you are ready to hit the drive-thru, you should know which meals are going to set you back the most cash.

The most expensive Chick-fil-A item is not America's favorite

When it comes to fast food, salads are typically not the first menu items that come to mind. That said, a lot of fast-casual joints do serve up some version of leafy greens. The offerings at Wendy's include a Parmesan Caesar Salad and a Southwest Avocado Salad, while Subway serves a salad version of its Veggie Delite sandwich piled high with vegetables and a dressing of your choice. Chick-fil-A also has several salads on offer, including a Cobb Salad, a Spicy Southwest Salad, and a Market Salad. But before you order one of these dishes, you should know that these three salads also happen to be the most expensive items on the Chick-fil-A menu.

According to the Krazy Coupon Lady, the Market Salad and Spicy Southwest Salad are tied for the most expensive, sharing a $9.55 price tag. The Cobb Salad comes in a close second at $9.35.

Are these leafy offerings worth the price? Everyone has a unique set of taste buds, but when it comes to America's favorite Chick-fil-A products, salads don't appear to be one of them. In 2021, Chick-fil-A broke down its fan favorites across the country, analyzing the West, Southwest, Midwest, Northeast, Atlantic, and Southeast regions of the United States. Salads did not crack the top 10 on any list. As for every region's favorite, there was one clear, unanimous winner: the waffle fries.
