Fast food has its roots in 1950s Americana, when carhops had to fill customers' orders before the end of a Buddy Holly song or have a milkshake callously dumped on their roller skates. Try a happier take on speedy dining with today's deal: for $2, you get two spicy chicken biscuit sandwiches at Chick-fil-A on East Capitol Street (a $4.99 value including tax). Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.
Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwiches became an instant classic one fateful day in 1967, when an anonymous Georgia chicken wandered into a hot, buttered bun and made history. Forty-some-odd years later, or 267 million chicken years, Chick-fil-A chicken biscuit sandwiches are still made the same way, with boneless cuts of breast meat hand-breaded by mystic chicken ascetics, bronzed in 100% refined peanut oil, and kept warm in buttermilk biscuit earmuffs. Like gambling on horse racing, the chicken biscuit is so dangerously delicious that you'll devour two without thinking twice, but unlike gambling, Chick-fil-A's sandwiches never contain dice, poker chips, or knee-breaking goons in track suits.
Although briefly embroiled in a scandal involving alleged ties to the underground bovine resistance (the Bovine Liberation Front, or BLF), the tender, juicy perfection of each seasoned, pressure-cooked chicken chop swayed a grand jury. Once released, Chick-fil-A immediately spread to encompass the entire nation, currently boasting nearly 1,500 restaurants and the ability to bench press three times its body weight.
