Use the App to Order Keto
We’ve suggested this before when talking about eating Keto Taco Bell and others, use the restaurants app whenever possible. This will let you easily customize whatever you are eating.
Plus, let’s face it. It’s so awkward now with Chick-Fil-A and their drive thru. While the crazy long lines at Chick-Fil-A are handled super fast because they have God speed efficiency, the fact you are ordering face to face without looking at a menu most of the time is just weird.
And it makes things really odd when you are trying to order Chick-Fil-a keto friendly options and having to customize to your low carb liking.
I would fail you by not mentioning this tid bit about the Chick-Fil-A app. Built into the app is a loyalty program that lets you earn rewards every time you order. If you have a large family like mine, the reward points can add up quick offering you free food. Who doesn’t love free food?
Likewise – Chick-Fil-A’s website offers similar ordering options, including the option to deliver in some areas. That’a keto fast food WIN in our book! Not having to leave the house and food just appearing at our door that is keto friendly, yes and please.
Don’t Forget – They Are Close on Sundays
Another fun or not so fun fact – Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays.
Yes, friends – despite how many more millions this fast food chain would make, they honor the Lord’s day by closing on Sundays.
