“Eat Mor Chikin” is Chick-fil-A’s mantra, but what’s fried chicken without some Southern-style sides?
The Atlanta-based restaurant is adding mac and cheese to its menu, the first addition to its offerings since 2016. Billed as a “classic macaroni and cheese recipe with a special blend of cheddar, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses,” the side is now available as a lunch or dinner side, as a kids meal and with your Chick-fil-A catering order.
Prices vary depending on where you’re eating Chick-fil-A around the country, but the base price for this new Chick-fil-A menu item is around $2.79 per small side order or $3.55 for a medium.
Chick-fil-A is one of the most profitable restaurant chains in the country, with more than $10 billion in profits in 2018, behind only McDonalds and Starbucks. And as the third-largest fast-food joint in the nation, Chick-fil-A takes its menu seriously. That’s why the restaurant tested mac and cheese in five markets before launching it as a full-time sidedish this month.
Unlike the Chick-fil-A fish sandwich, however, which only made a short-term appearance for Lent, the macaroni and cheese side is here to stay. The ubiquitous comfort food joins permanent side options like the infamous Chick-fil-A waffle fries, biscuits, superfood salad, apple sauce and chicken noodle soup.
Chick-fil-A still doesn’t offer faux meat options, though, and there’s no word on whether it will join other fast-food chains in diversifying its entrees for non-meat eaters. So if you’ve got a hankering for fast food and can’t eat chicken, you can always check out the Impossible Whopper at Burger King. You can get the two-for-one deal right now if you order through the Burger King app.
