Super Chix Has Sandwich-Shamed Chick-fil-A. Bless Them.

Last week we reported on Yum! Brands' new creation, which is appropriately dubbed Super Chix. The parent company of KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut has reincarnated battered and fried bird strips, including this sandwich pictured above, in an apparent bid to take over the Chick-fil-A audience.

On my first trip I concentrated on the ambiance and vibe (think Chipotle), and the chicken strips -- particularly since they were free that day. Later in the week I pushed all my pennies into a pile for one of their build-it-your-way sandwiches.

When you order a sandwich at Super Chix, there's a pretty big "free toppings" section on the menu to choose from. Go for gold here. Be in it to win it. I ordered mine with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, sweet pickles, jalapeños and haystack onions. I only left out two other types of pickles (kosher and hot).

Super Chix's bun has a little sweetness to it, although it hardly holds together a fully loaded sandwich. I'm not too much a hater about this, though. I'm at peace with a sloppy sandwich and would rather have too little bread than too much. But between those faltering buns was crispy, moist, flavor-bursting goodness, along with a sparkle of fire from those jalapeños balanced by sweet pickles. Halfway through I was plotting my next sandwich. (Probably Sunday. Just because I can.)

As I mentioned previously, this is the only Super Chix in the galaxy (southeast corner of Cooper and Park Row). And it's in central Arlington about 8.4 minutes south of Interstate 30 or 9.3 minutes north of Interstate 20, depending on which lights you hit. The Arlington High Colts live just across the street and UTA is about a mile away (which, I figure, is why this spot is their test market. Possibly?).

And praise heaven, they're open on Sundays.

What they didnt mention was the frozen custard. Flavor of the day when I went was fluffernutter and it was glorious.

But can they replicate the self-righteous Piety Sauce™?

Will they do double bacon? (What? Relax, I'll get it with a Coke Zero.)

Looks yummy. Hope they open one close to me.

Haven't been there yet, but based on the website it appears they might be targeting Raising Canes as much as Chick-Fil-A.

The thought of a chick-fil-a sandwich with hot pickles on it just gave me a mean semi.

The greatness of Chick-fil-A doesn't need lettuce, tomatoes, or any of that other crap.

Shame its in Arlington. I miss Chickfila breakfasts but am boycotting them since they are bigots. If this were in Dallas proper I would go there so fast.

Never thought I'd get so old I'd notice things like this, the top pic looks awfully greasy.

With all due respect, you really need a fried hormone-laden chicken dumping ground near you? Where do you live, Antarctica?

@cyrrndr  Toppings aren't required. I'm sure you can get it without.

@cyrrndr  I was thinking the same thing.  It's like pizza -- when it's good, it doesn't need or benefit from piling a dozen toppings on.

@P1Gunter I agree totally with Chick-fil-a and have increased my patronage since the secular media persecution.
