We just happened to be in Yorkdale today and stumbled across the new Chick-fil-A. I didn't realize they had placed on here, but a happy surprise. We waited in the requisite line for about 10 minutes. Not a big deal really. Very friendly service, but seemed somewhat disorganized. Mostly just the amount of customers jostling for their food. The employees did their best. We ordered the regular nuggets, grilled nuggets, waffle fries and diet lemonade. Both nuggets were unexciting to me. I can see why people like them, but meh? but don't sleep on those waffle fries dipped in their special sauce. That is the real specialty. Plus, diet lemonade is delicious!
Not good. They're not used to being not busy. The chicken is cold and unsatisfying. Go somewhere else to get your chicken sandwich fix.
I was about to give Chick-Fil-A 3 stars because, meh, overhyped chicken sandwich that's nowhere near the awesome chicken sandwiches in this city. But then as I continued to bite into the surprisingly juicy and surprisingly a-bit-bland deluxe chicken sandwich, and pop the overhyped waffle fries dipped in the properly hyped amazing Chick-Fil-A sauce, I had to check myself. This was a fast food chicken sandwich that cost me $7 not $14. I shouldn't be comparing this to the great sandwiches of Love Chix and PG Clucks, but to something I can get from KFC or Taco Bell or McDonalds. So yeah, 4 stars. ps: Lineup was long but moved really quickly. And this Chick-Fil-A is inside the mall, so no standing out in the cold like the downtown location.
The line moved very fast! Well organized. To be honest, I usually don't like fried chicken. I rather get fat with other food. I figure I will see what the hype is about especially this location is not like the downtown one where people have to wait outside (located in the foodcourt of Yorkdale Mall). The spicy chicken deluxe was so good. Juicy, and just the right level of spice and the batter was not too thick. The grilled nuggets were unique and nicely marinated too! I've asked for all the sauces to try my waffle potato fries. I find the polynesian sauce a little too sweet for me, I prefer the chick fil a sauce, the rest of my collection, I have yet to try. The service was good. Will I come back? Did Chick fil a change my view on fried chicken burger? Yes and yes! Will definitely come back!
I just came here to laugh at all the people actually lining up for chicken fingers and fries. Average at best. This place and Cheesecake Factory we Canadians flock too, but when a more important American company comes here like Sprint or T-Mobile we block them so we can suffer in higher phone plans.
Tried chick-fil-a for the first time today. And it was definitely worth the wait in line. I was a teeny bit disappointed when I saw that there wasn't actual pieces of chicken like we're used to for chicken places but like I said just a teeny bit. We got the Spicy chicken deluxe sandwich with waffle fries and lemonade and chocolate shake...they were all great!!!! Quality was definitely there and so was the flavour. We also tried the chick-fil-a sauce, Polynesian sauce and sweet and spicy Siracha sauce. All were good.
The wait always appears daunting, but it never seems to be more than 10 minutes, which is quite impressive, given the size of lines, at launch. The quality of the chicken and it's preparation, is noticeable. I was never really sold on pickles and cheese on a chicken sandwich, but I am now. The Deluxe version of the sandwich has these ingredients and it works well, with or without sauce. The grilled nuggets were excellent, with the sriracha sauce. The spicy version of the sandwich had more kick than your typical fast food sandwich, but still tolerable for those that are heat-sensitive. The only reason they aren't 5 stars is because the common thread running through all of these items is the excessive salt level. My wife tried it once and won't go back, because she's turned off by the saltiness. I like the flavour, but I agree that it's very clear this is not for people on a low-sodium diet.
Some people are looking to be served like royalty. It's fast food!! And it will be greasy. Line is intimidating but was served quickly. Chocka chip cookies are a must everytime. Love their waffle fries and their chicken deluxe sandwich is yummy and very filling.
This company has a horrific human rights record! They've tried to change their public image because social media has outed them and effected their bottom line ... but I wouldn't be fooled by their latest propaganda and rhetoric. Stay away from this hate mongering holy roller fried chicken for brains chain!
Considering this was the first Saturday since their grand opening on Tuesday, the wait time was virtually unnoticeable. Expedient service- we were greeted with such warm, attentive staff. The food was delicious! Grilled chicken nuggets: WOWWWWWW. the seasoning and flavour were out of this world. Sandwiches: both the spicy and the original were so tasty! At first I was weary since they don't put sauce on them, but trust me, they don't need it! So delicious Sauces: the chick-Fil-a sauce and the Polynesian sauces were so good! A+ all over.
The Chic Fil a chain is extremely popular chain from America specialty is chicken both fried and grilled with waffle cut french fries hugely popular item to. The wait is not long to get the #1 chicken sandwich.
This place is crazy busy. Mostly a younger crowd. The food is no better than other fried chicken chains. Basically unhealthiest way to eat chicken. Bought a chicken burger and fries for my 15 year old. She loved it. Not my first choice!
New location in yorkdale is really good. Good food and comes out fairly quickly to enjoy in the food court
Personally, can't be compared to the ones in the states. But overall customer service and food is good! If you are craving any good fast food then this is the place for you! I personally love their waffle fries and their milkshakes!
Honestly been waiting for this to open in Toronto! And it's finally here! The spicy chicken burger is the best one!!! The chicken is so tender and so delicious. Waffle friess are a must try and also their 88 different sauces! Try the chic fila sauce forsyre. I honestly like this spot over any other fast food burger spot! Deff ann upgrade and an experience!
All sales are in US only. Pos machine doesn't accept tab and Apple Pay. Customer service is rude . Spicy chicken doesn't taste well.
This chicken sandwich is AMAZING!!! Top notch service, excellent quality, tasty food, reasonably priced! Let's get this place open NATIONWIDE!!!
