I always go in, always. I catch the errors right then & there. I’m skeptical they would mess with my food, if I bellyached from the car.

I did not order by number. I used the words, "<xyz> sandwich." I did not say "<xyz> meal," I specifically said "sandwich."

This is not a one-time occurrence. It happens frequently, actually most of the time.


Happens all the time at McDonalds and Sonic here, as well. I just figure it’s due to the order taker’s not giving a shit about what they’re doing.

It's two more words, gets you want you want and saves times with questions.

Try it.


Yep, that or “Just the sandwich” works great. I’ve yet to have it fail.

V-tail: “Sandwich only, please.”

Order Taker: “Do you want fries with that?”

The way to deal with this is simple- expect to be asked these kinds of questions and deflect them as politely as you can. Don't get me wrong- this kind of thing annoys me, too, but taking it out on some minimum wage schmoe is not the cure.


Thank you Para. I always hate reading posts about people who intentionally screw with minimum wage employees. Yeah, the girl behind the register isn’t good at math. If she was she probably wouldn’t be ringing up groceries for 8 bucks an hour. I don’t want to do it myself, nor do I want to pay 10 bucks for a loaf of bread so that the store can hire people with bachelors degrees in mathematics to work the line.

You want $50 cheeseburger service? Go to a place with $50 cheeseburgers.

That's very surprising to me, around here they are the ONLY fast food place that won't screw up your order with competent, cheerful employees far unlike your typical BK or McDonald's worker.

Just about everything that you said is true, except for their compulsion to add a medium order of waffle fries to my request for a sandwich. They are always very polite and pleasant about taking the fries back and removing them from the bill, but it seems to be a song-and-dance routine that we repeat all too frequently. It's still better than any other fast food place. It's just that I don't want fries with that.

Confused Mayo? Confused

My only gripe about Chick-fil-A is routinely getting Diet Coke when I ask for Dr. Pepper. All they hear is D... and fill the cup with the wrong syrup.

One plus about the local Chick-fil-A that I frequent, they still have the spicy chicken biscuit. Big Grin

Yup, mayo. Duke's. It's good on many things!

Your spicy chicken biscuit -- that's on the breakfast menu? WOW! Where y'at? It might be road-trip time.

No biggie. Just not a mayo guy. The word around here is that Dukes is better than Hellmans all day long. So there is that.

Road trip may set you back ~450 miles due North. Since it is breakfast, you'd have to leave early.
