Find out which of your delicious favorites topped the menu this year
Have you ever wondered how popular your favorite menu item is nationwide?
The results are in, and we’re sharing which Chick-fil-A® menu items topped the list of most popular orders in 2020. Here’s a list of the most-ordered Chick-fil-A items across the country (based on data from Jan. 1 to Oct. 31), broken down by menu category.
For three straight years, Chick-fil-A Nuggets have been the most popular entrée nationwide.
This may not be much of a surprise to our loyal guests who may pick up our nuggets for a delicious snack, as their main course or to feed the youngest chicken lovers in their family. These bite-sized pieces of goodness are seasoned to perfection, freshly breaded in our restaurant kitchens and pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil.
Pro tip: A small catering tray or 30-count nugget order with your choice of dipping sauce is the perfect, hassle-free weeknight meal for the family — you’ll thank us later!
Original Chicken Sandwich
Since it was first invented in 1964, the Original Chicken Sandwich has become what we’re most known for. This year was no exception — this classic was the second most-ordered entrée in 2020.
The beauty lies in the simple recipe: a boneless breast of chicken, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. Even though our menu offers variety so there’s something for everyone, this timeless entrée remains a fan favorite year after year…maybe because it pairs perfectly with our bold, crispy Waffle Fries.
What’s not to love about hand-spun, delicious Chick-fil-A Milkshakes? Many customers wait for all year for our innovative seasonal offerings, including Peach and Peppermint Chip, which only stick around for a few months during the summer and winter, respectively.
Featuring delicious Chick-fil-A Icedream® dessert and topped with whipped cream and a cherry, the most popular milkshake for the second year in a row was Cookies & Cream.
Chocolate Chunk Cookie
For the first time, our Chocolate Chunk Cookie surpassed the Chick-fil-A Icedream® dessert. These cookies are sweet perfection, baked with both semi-sweet dark and milk chocolate chunks and wholesome oats.
This year, guests can savor the sweetness of the holiday season with Chick-fil-A® Chocolate Chunk Cookies and milk bundle through the end of 2020. Sharing the thoughtful gift of a 6-pack of cookies is a sure way to spread good-tasting cheer!
An age-old classic, our crispy Waffles Fries were our guests’ favorite side again this year. Each fry is cooked in canola oil until crispy outside and tender inside, making them the perfect companion for our nuggets. Their bold shape makes them unique and has won the hearts of Chick-fil-A guests across the country.
Mac & Cheese
In its first full year on the menu, this quintessential comfort food stood out from a wide range of options to become one of our most popular offerings.
Last year, Mac & Cheese launched nationwide as Chick-fil-A’s first new side since 2016. Featuring a special blend of cheeses including Parmesan, Cheddar, and Romano, this side is baked in-restaurant to form a crispy top layer of baked cheese.
One of our many vegetarian and vegan-friendly options, Chick-fil-A signature “tot” style hash browns were the favorite choice for guests starting their day on a delicious note. It’s hard to believe these hearty potato medallions are only 270 calories.
Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit
Many say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Chick-fil-A lovers will argue there is no better way to kick off the day than with the ultimate breakfast sandwich. Each one is served on a buttermilk biscuit that is baked fresh throughout the morning at each restaurant. Fun fact: From start to finish, it takes around 30 minutes to bake each batch of biscuits. Team Members arrive before 5:30 a.m. to kick off the process.
