Six Dallas Chicken Sandwiches to Eat While You Protest Chick-Fil-A

Categories: Eat This

Off-Site Kitchen Chicken Sandwich.jpg
If you haven't heard, tomorrow is National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A. The event encourages gay rights supporters to head to their nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant and take pictures or videos of themselves making out. News of the event spurred Mike Huckabee to call for a preemptive Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day that drew customers in the hundreds to many locations to sit around and eat chicken -- kind of boring comparatively.

But that doesn't solve the real problem at hand: the need to eat fried-chicken sandwiches. That in mind, here are six sandwiches around Dallas to help sate your desire for a little bird between the buns.

Off-Site Kitchen (pictured above)
It's small, but so is Chick-fil-A's, and the crunchy crust on the chicken blows the fast-food version out of the water. With lettuce, tomato and a drizzle of ranch dressing, choosing this sandwich feels less like a protesting effort and more like a lunchtime indulgence.

Of all the chicken sandwiches in Dallas, Zaguan's may have the best bread. It has a decent crust that's tough and blistered and stands up to warm fillings where other loaves go limp. Served with melted Swiss cheese and mayonnaise, with warm chunks of chicken breast coated in tomato sauce, Zaguan's namesake sandwich is a keeper.

The Bye-Bye Birdie is a massive chicken breast encased in a thick, greasy coat of deep-fried waffle batter. It's not my favorite chicken sandwich in Dallas, but look at the size of this thing. If you're out past Lakewood and you want a meal that will last you for days, this is the chicken sandwich for you.

3)Gorilla VS Bear

Greatest chicken sandwich in the world? St Petes. Why? It pulled me from a burning car just before the car exploded. I did get some mayo on my pants though.

Loved the Adam Smith story -  big man bullying a teenaged cashier at CFA.  Today he is looking for a job.  Poetic justice.

I thought we were talking about the best fried chicken sandwich in Dallas.   This is about FOOD!

Funny how Obama had the same position upto a few weeks ago but there were no "kiss ins" at his campaign stops or fundraisers.   Maybe that is because the real issue with the leftwing kooks is Christianity.  Real Christianity vs the fake Christianity practiced by an atheist who finds it politically expediant to do so.  Just like it was politically expediant for him to flip flop on the gay marriage issue.

Our absolutely favorite fried chicken sandwich is served at the new  ALLIGATOR CAFE in Casa Linda.  Spicy fried chicken breast with sautéed peppers, onions, rémoulade sauce, & melted provolone cheese on an egg bread bun......sublime!  And inexpensive to boot.

OVer this chicken shit but who needs a reason to hate them? Their chicken is so fake it makes me puke every time I have tried it. Just give you bowel cancer in the end. Eat the real deal.

This, of course, has nothing to do with free speech.  The owners are generous donors to groups that preach hate against Gays.  Southern-fried bigots always find a smokescreen for their intolerance and hatred of minorities.

If I boycotted every movie with an actor who said something I don't agree with or boycotted every band that said something I didn't agree with I would have a pretty shitty life.

I'd rather protest Dallas Observer. They continue to display extreme liberal bias.

I've never understood the issue people have with gay folks wanting to get married...if it's such an affront to God shouldn't we let him handle it? and while he's working maybe he can also do something about the high rate of divorce among heterosexuals too;)

Someone needs to repurpose one of their "eat more chikin" billboards with the cows.

 

Have the cows mounting each other and make the sign read "Only chikins and republickinz do it in the closet."

 

And change the logo to Prick-filleted.

It's okay, because the Dallas Observer never liked you.

Love is the greatest commandment...Luv National Kiss Day! Chick-Fil-A is PRO God's Word, not againsts anyone..... The honest interview was from believer to beleiver, not criticizing. Have a little respect for free speach, religion

I've not read any hate speech by Chick fil a. Just the owners defense of traditional marriage. Plus like all typical liberal rags the DO just automatically assumes all of Dallas needs this info...

But will the alternatives have that same sweet taste of bigotry and oppression?

I'm also wondering how many CFA fans went apoplectic when Oreo posted that picture of the rainbow cookie. I know I've certainly seen some overlap.

Wow, so many un-Christian comments from those professing to be Christians. I'm pretty sure Jesus was all about diversity....

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz I love it when you post.  No facts, just name calling.  You are as intolerant as the Nazi's you supposedly hate.  When the name calling starts, which in your case is with your first syllable, you are admitting defeat.  Keep posting, it's entertaining and instructive.  As for me, I think it's stupid to hold fast food more accountable than we hold our politicians  I eat what I like, and leave all the shit to those with small minds.

 @CitizenKane No one's condemning your right to say stupid and bigoted shit; we're just condemning the stupid and bigoted shit you say.

 Unsurprisingly, you like to eat shit. And you aren't holding any politician accountable for shit either, big boy. Enjoy popping your blood pressure meds and spinning circles in your Lil' Rascal when the diabetes takes hold.

 That's a big word you people to lift...here let me help you:

Bigot - a person who is utterly intolerant and condeming of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.

Checkmate.

 @Langolier (tolerate): Allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of (something that one does not necessarily like or agree with) without interference.We're tolerating it. We just think it's retarded, idiotic, and border-line evil. I think the difference here is one side doesn't want to "allow the practice of something that one does not agree with". They want to keep it illegal.You know, like gay marriage.
