    A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Texas has been temporarily closed after two employees were shot and killed inside the fast-food establishment by an immigrant in the country unlawfully from El Salvador.

    The prices are just too damn high.Earlier this month, McDonald’s made a reassuring announcement — the return of its $5 value meal. This pocket-friendly deal includes a choice of sandwiches, a four-piece order of McNuggets, medium fries, and a drink. Not to be outdone, Burger King is also stepping up with its own $5 Your Way Meal, featuring a sandwich, chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink. And of course, Wendy’s weighed in first with its $3 breakfast meals, then with its 1-cent bacon cheeseburgers. These affordable options are a welcome respite for consumers amidst the rising fast food prices. Although...

The news broke as Trump made headlines for his positive reception at the popular eatery, with customers and employees fawning over him as he ordered his food. A spokesperson for the Department of Justice held a press briefing to announce the indictment. "We've got him this time," the spokesperson said.

    Chick-fil-A, the nationwide fast food chain known not only for its fried chicken sandwiches but also for its charitable foundation’s history of donating to organizations with anti-LGBTQ+ leanings, is facing a community uproar over a proposed new California location in the very gay-friendly city of Palm Springs, according to the Desert Sun and the Palm Springs Post. Plans for the new location at The Springs, a shopping plaza at the northeast corner of Ramon Road and Gene Autry Trail, have been formally submitted to the desert city, but the project is on hold as the company negotiates with the shopping...

    The fast-food chain Chick-fil-A backtracked from its decade-old “no antibiotics ever” pledge intended to help prevent human antibiotic resistance linked to the rampant use of the drugs in livestock production. Instead, the company said in a statement that it will embrace a standard known as “no antibiotics important to human medicine,” often abbreviated as NAIHM, which entails the avoidance of medications commonly used to treat people and limits the use of animal antibiotics to cases of actual animal illness. SNIP Chick-fil-A said it will begin shifting to the new policy in the spring of 2024. A company spokesman added that...

    What is about Chick-fil-A that absolutely drives so many on the Left to push for its destruction via periodic spasms of boycotts (that typically fail) or imposing abusive government regulations like that proposed by New York State Assemblyman Tony Simone? Simone is a freshman member of the Empire State's legislature, representing a district that encompasses "Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown and part of the Lincoln Center area in Manhattan," according to his official website. For whatever reason, Simone became deeply concerned about the fact that some Sunday travelers on the New York Thruway (NYTW) might not be able to get their...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said he would go to “war” with the state of New York should Albany legislators pass a bill to force some Empire State Chick-fil-A’s to operate seven days a week. The iconic southern chicken chain has long been closed on Sundays, in keeping with the religious beliefs of its original Christian founder, S. Truett Cathy. “This is war,” Graham posted to X in response to an article about the bill. “If this goes forward, I will be introducing legislation withholding federal funds from any city or state that requires @ChickfilA to stay open on Sunday.”

    A new bill filed in the New York State Assembly aims to force some Chick-fil-A locations to operate seven days a week, threatening the fast food chain's longstanding policy of keeping its restaurants closed on Sundays. The legislation proposed last week would require all food vendors operating at rest stops owned by the New York State Thruway Authority to open every day, and names Chick-fil-A as the reason behind the move. "While there is nothing objectionable about a fast food restaurant closing on a particular day of the week, service areas dedicated to travelers is an inappropriate location for such...

The proposal would amend an already existing law and require restaurants to provide services...

After consuming the suspicious meat, Sharp 'became violently ill, was nauseated, vomited until (she) had no strength left to do so, suffered from cramping, nausea and diarrhea, and sustained great injury to her mouth,...

    A Call for Boycotts This week a wave of controversy has been ignited by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) section on Chick-fil-A’s website, stirring up discussions and garnering attention across various platforms.

    Some conservatives have suggested a boycott of Chick-fil-A after the fast-food chain was discovered to have a vice president of “diversity, equity, [and] inclusion,” or DEI. In a previously issued Chick-fil-A news release, the company said that Erick McReynolds serves as its vice president of DEI, saying: “Chick-fil-A restaurants have long been recognized as a place where people know they will be treated well. Modeling care for others starts in the restaurant, and we are committed to ensuring mutual respect, understanding, and dignity everywhere we do business.”DEI is a set of principles that large corporations, government agencies, and schools have...
