    Just had a Chick-fil-A open near me but haven't tried it, are they good?

    And i can't believe Dunkin Donuts is ahead of Starbucks, their coffee tastes like coffee flavored dishwater..

    Chick-fil-A, Chipotle among America's favorite fast-food chains

    Chick-fil-A beat out Panera, Subway and even Starbucks in customer satisfaction.
    America’s favorite fast food chain is a chicken joint that most people outside the U.S. have never heard of.

    Inside fast food nation, however, Chick-fil-A has succeeded in developing a loyal and growing fan base, outranking stalwarts such as McDonald’s and Pizza Hut in a new ranking of customer satisfaction.

    In the 2015 edition of the American Customer Satisfaction Index, the restaurant chain best known for its fried chicken sandwiches recorded not just the highest score (86), but also the highest score for a fast food chain to date in the ACSI index.

    Not far behind is Chipotle, followed by Panera Bread, Papa John’s, and Pizza Hut.

    The results are all the more impressive given that both Chick-fil-A and Chipotle make their debut on the list this year.

    The index is based on the results of more than 5,020 surveys collected in the first quarter of 2015.

    Overall, the report also revealed that US consumers are growing increasingly disgruntled from the year before, with satisfaction levels in fast food chains dropping nearly 4 percent from 2014 — the lowest score in five years.

    The fast food chains that recorded the biggest drops? The four major pizza chains — Pizza Hut, Little Caesars, Papa John’s and Domino’s — which lost between five to eight percentage points in the last year.

    At the other end, the only fast food chain to record a spike in customer satisfaction is Dunkin’ Donuts, which jumped ahead of Starbucks.

    Landing at the bottom of the heap is McDonald’s.

    Here’s how fast food chains ranked on the ACSI:

    1. Chick-fil-A

    2. Chipotle

    3. Panera Bread

    4. Papa John’s

    5. Pizza Hut

    6. Dunkin’ Donuts

    7. Subway

    8. Domino’s

    9. Little Caesars

    10. Starbucks

    11. Arby’s

    12. Wendy’s

    13. KFC

    14. Burger King

    15. Taco Bell

    16. Jack in the Box

    17. McDonald’s

    Chick-Fil-A doesn't mess around. Always get great service in there and wonder if they might get in trouble one day for their hiring practices. It's the only fast food place around me that hires mostly white people.

    Good, not great. Worth trying at least once. Load 'em up on them high-fructose sauce packets. The only time I really crave their food is on Sundays. Their milkshakes are a cut above, however.

    In-N-Out and Jack in the Box are the best.

    For me the waffle fries are the only reason to go back. Chicken sandwiches are ok, not great.

    Btw this list is customer satisfaction w/ service, not food quality. So Dunkin' might have coffee-flavored dishwater, but they're pleasant and helpful when serving said dishwater.

    In that respect, you truly won't find better service and pleasantries than Chick-Fil-A. Chipper, attractive white folks with stellar manners and beaming smiles, every location.

    Also, how is Chipolte on this list? I've never seen one with a drive-thru... fast food my ass.

    Must be where you live. Here in SoCal they are mostly minority or gay.

    Worst pizza on the planet (along w dominos and papa john)

    I think may just buckle down and go to a Chick-fil-a this weekend, I have one close by and I even get random gift certificates about once a year at my work for a free chicken sandwich yet I have never gone.

    Those bigots at Chik-Fil-A do make a great sandwich, and the customer service is awesome compared to some of the food slingers I've dealt with. Every time I go to the drive through I have a moment of shame...since I'm gay and all, but then i figure, "I don't give a fuck if they want me to get married, just give me the food."

    I killed Chipotle for myself. My office caters lunch on Thursday's and one week they got Chipolte. Only ten of us were here to eat enough for 30. We were bringing that shit home. Ever since I just can't eat it.

    this survey is based on service not food quality.

    Chick fil A is good fast food, but it's the service and people who work there that make it stand out. Love it!

    They just opened a Steak and Shake down the road from me about 2 weeks ago. That place has cars lined up out to the highway all day and night ! It's the first and only one in the state so I guess the novelty has something to do with it. We got burgers there the other day and I thought that they were good but I would say that 5 Guys is just as good. The wife and kids said the milkshakes were really good though.
