“Chiken” Comes To The South Bay


Our trusty LAmag.com intern Kimberly Jacobs set her heart on being one of the first 100 customers through the door of the brand new Torrance Chick-fil-A, which held its grand opening today. She and everyone else in the South Bay…

“Eat Mor Chiken” is in full effect with the new standalone Chick-fil-A in the South Bay. I couldn’t wait to wake up this morning to a chicken biscuit sandwich at the restaurant’s grand opening. I arrived at 8 am to a crew of jubilant, welcoming faces prepared to take my order. I knew I was late—they opened at 6—but I just had to ask about the First 100: The first 100 people through the door that day would win free Chik-fil-A for a year. As it turns out, about 180 people had camped out the night before for the chance. Alas.

 I mixed my brek-fest (breakfast) order up with waffle fries instead of hashbrowns and a squeeze of tangy Chik-fil-A sauce. My hardest decision was the jelly: grape, strawberry, or honey were all available. In the end, I went with grape. To drink? The signature Chick-fil-A lemonade.
