Chick-Fil-A Has A Hawaiian-Themed Restaurant You've Probably Never Heard Of

Chick-fil-A, America's favorite fast-food chain, is a restaurant best known for, well, chicken. Most specifically, its famous chicken sandwiches, which it was prepared to defend to the death in an all-out Twitter war against arch-rival Popeyes. Still, this chicken sandwich specialization, bordering on obsession, does not mean they can't branch out into new territory every now and then, as proven by the highly-publicized addition of mac and cheese to their menu of side dishes.

One side gig Chick-fil-A has not been so quick to tweet about is a solo project launched in just a single location: a Hawaiian-themed restaurant located in Fayetteville, Georgia. Fayetteville, a small town which is home to a number of famous people including Cosby alum actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, rapper Cee Lo Green, and WWE legend Iron Sheik, is now poised to be on the map — once word gets out — as the home of Truett's Luau.

Despite its name, Truett's Luau is actually an official Chick-fil-A location. It was the brain child of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy, which he finally brought to realization in 2013 at the age of 92. Mr. Cathy is no longer with us, but his dream to "bring Hawaii to Fayetteville" is alive and well with this staycation destination luau restaurant that remains popular with everyone who's in on the secret.

The vibe is pretty unique — kind of fast food meets Lilo and Stitch, complete with ukulele music, palm trees, grass-thatched booths, and kitschy tiki carvings. The menu is also one-of-a-kind, featuring your standard array of Chick-fil-A favorites supplemented by Hawaiian inspirations including kalua pork, pineapple fried rice, and King's Hawaiian bread pudding. No Spam musubi (or Spam anything), but they do offer a version of loco moco on the breakfast menu.

While some food critics say Chick-fil-A's Hawaiian menu items aren't exactly the best representation of authentic island cuisine, most customers seem to find them pretty tasty. Plus, where else are you going to find fast food, casual dining, and a booze-free tiki bar all under one roof? If you're a Chick-fil-A fan, and/or you'd love a trip to the islands but can't afford the plane fare, a trip to Truett's Luau might be just the ticket for your next affordable dream vacation.
