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 $3, you get two classic chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A (a $6.70 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 sandwiches are still made the same way, with boneless cuts of breast meat hand-breaded by mystic chicken ascetics, dill-pickle chips pickled from the freshest of cucumbers, and an optional golden wheat bun that is both golden and made of wheat ($3.35 including tax). Like gambling on horse racing, the original chicken sandwich 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, several best-drive-thru awards, and the ability to bench press three times its body weight.

- I love Chick-fil-A. Their chicken sandwiches are the best I've ever had. Crispy breading, perfect seasoning, and hot, juicy, and tender chicken breast meat. – Lap L., on the Sports Arena location
- Their chicken sandwiches and sooo tasty!! I always get the chargrilled chicken sandwich, with paper [sic] jack cheese. The waffle potato fires are delicious! The employees are always nice and friendly. – Chade m., on the Oceanside location
