A restaurant that’s full of perfectly crispy chicken, outstanding service, good prices, and locations all around the United States – it seems too good to be true. Well, it’s not, because what I’ve just described is the one and only, America’s true love: Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A is known for its fried chicken nuggets, delicious chicken sandwiches, waffle french fries, and milkshakes. But, like most fast food spots, you probably have a go-to meal that you don't stray from that looks something like this: nuggets, fries, and a shake. But, there are so many items on the menu that are not as well-known, yet are so delicious and extremely underrated. I hereby announce the best menu items at Chick-fil-A (secret menu items like Chick-fil-A nachos not included). 


Starting strong with a personal favorite hidden item of mine: the Chick-n-Minis. These bite-sized nuggets are a true delicacy and one of the best fast food breakfast items I have ever indulged in. They combine sweet and savory by wrapping the crispy nuggets inside a mini bun, lightly coated with honey butter on top.

These will fill you up and are absolutely addicting. If I could eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be these chick-n-minis – it’s a shame so many people around the world haven’t tried them yet. They’re a little taste of heaven and a must-try.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Have you ever been sick and thought to go to Chick-fil-A to get soup to help soothe your throat? I’m guessing no, but I think I might be able to change your mind on this. This chicken noodle soup is just right for when you’re craving some plus, it will help you through any cold you have.

It features shredded Chick-fil-A chicken breast, carrots, celery, and thick egg noodles, all in a nice, hearty broth. You even get a side of saltine crackers with it! I hope you don’t get sick, but the next time you are, you must try the chicken noodle soup – it’s better than you might think.

Cobb Salad

You might be wondering why the Cobb salad is a part of this list, and let me tell you, this salad is so tasty. It’s truly an unexpected order from Chick-fil-A.

If you want something on the lighter side, this salad is your perfect option. It’s full of fresh greens, cheddar and Monterey jack cheese, bacon bits, tomatoes, a hard boiled egg, freshly fried nuggets, and some more toppings to create the perfect salad combo.

Honey Roasted BBQ & Zesty Buffalo Sauce 

As far as sauces go, just about nothing beats the deliciousness that is Chick-fil-A sauce. But, what if I told you that there are two more sauces there that are just as good, if not better, than Chick-fil-A sauce?

The honey roasted BBQ sauce is a perfect mix of sweet honey with a kick of roast-y barbecue; it tops those spicy sandwiches just right and adds the perfect amount of roast and sweetness.

The zesty buffalo sauce is also one of my all-time favorites. If you like a good spicy buffalo sauce, you’ve got to try this one. It pairs perfectly with any item on the menu, but I personally love it with just a classic six-count of Chick-fil-A nuggets. If you can take the heat, I recommend you try their buffalo sauce pronto!

Mac & Cheese

This one might be a bit random, but I can promise you if you want a good mac and cheese, this one's for you. It’s creamy, thick, and so cheesy. This is an unexpected dub from Chick-fil-A yet again, but it’s absolutely amazing and you should try it during your next visit. 

Spicy Chicken Biscuit

This is probably another amazing breakfast combo that you might’ve never thought to order. The spicy chicken biscuit will kick off your morning just right. The sandwich is a breaded piece of chicken breast with a spicy blend of peppers served inside of a buttermilk biscuit. Dare I say this is Chick-fil-A’s best item on the menu? I can’t name anything that sounds better than this for breakfast.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie

If you’re craving a rich, fudge-filled brownie, Chick-fil-A has your back. This brownie is honestly one of the best fast food desserts there is out there. It’s perfect for all the chocolate lovers out there who want to indulge in a very sweet treat after some crispy nuggets.

Getting a brownie from Chick-fil-A might not have been on your 2024 bingo card, but I promise you, you will not regret trying it.


This is Chick-fil-A’s version of an Arnold Palmer, and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. You can order this several ways:

1/2 sweet tea with 1/2 diet lemonade,

1/2 sweet tea with 1/2 regular lemonade,

1/2 unsweet tea with 1/2 diet lemonade, or

1/2 unsweet tea with 1/2 regular lemonade.

No matter which way you choose to enjoy your Sunjoy, you are guaranteed to love it and feel like you’re sitting under the hot summer sun.

Grilled Nuggets

Chick-fil-A might be known for their absolutely delicious, fried-to-perfection nuggets, but did you know you can get grilled nuggets as well? The grilled nuggets are a healthier option. Though just simply grilled, the nuggets are still extremely delicious. They have a smoky kick to them, and you can always add a sauce on the side to give them some more flavor. When I discovered these, it was a whole new world for me — being able to eat a healthier option at Chick-fil-A while still experiencing the amazing flavors was life-changing. You can also get sandwiches in grilled chicken form, too.

Chick-fil-A Cool Wrap

Last, but certainly not least, this cool wrap is a hidden menu item that is unreal. It has sliced grilled chicken breast, a fresh mix of green leaf lettuce, and a blend of Monterey jack and cheddar cheeses, all wrapped tightly in a flaxseed flour flatbread. This wrap is absolute perfection. It’s fresh and pairs perfectly with the Avocado Lime Ranch dressing. Don’t blame me when you become addicted to this wrap!
