On Tuesday evening, San Antonio couple Robert and Falon Griffin stopped at a Chick-fil-A on their way to hospital, local news station KSAT reported on Thursday.

Chick-fil-A secret menu items

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

This is simply the Spicy Chicken Sandwich plus the signature Zesty Buffalo Sauce. You end up with a crispy buffalo chicken sandwich that’s loaded with dill pickles chips, and it’s delish!


Spicy Char

The Spicy Char, which is a grilled version of the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, is one of the most famous of Chick-fil-A’s secret menu items. In fact, this one is most likely available just by asking for it by its full name: the Spicy Char-Grilled Chicken Patty.


Fried Chicken Club

So the Spicy Char is the grilled version of a fried sandwich, and the Fried Chicken Club is the fried version of a grilled sandwich. It’s a tasty twist on the classic Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich. If it’s not available by name, ask for fried chicken instead of the grilled patty in your usual Club sandwich.


Chicken, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

The regular menu includes a Chicken, Egg & Cheese Bagel, but you can also ask for it on a biscuit to make a buttery Chicken, Egg & Cheese Biscuit.


Spicy Chicken, Egg & Cheese Bagel

If your local Chick-fil-A has Spicy Chicken during the breakfast shift, you’ll be in luck! This sandwich is well-known enough that you can ask for it by name.


Chicken on Anything at Breakfast

We’ve heard from Chick-fil-A employees and former employees that because chicken is on the chain’s breakfast menu, you can customize pretty much any breakfast sandwich by adding chicken. For any locations that (secretly) have Spicy Chicken during the breakfast shift, make that a Spicy Chicken plus the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit!


Bacon on Anything at Breakfast

You also can customize pretty much any Chick-fil-A breakfast sandwich by adding bacon. Hello, Hash Brown Scramble Burrito with Bacon!

Seeing a trend? You can pretty much ask for anything that’s on the menu to be added to anything else, and if it’s not too complicated, and your server’s not too busy, there’s a good chance you’ll get exactly what you want. Woo! 


Grilled Cheese

For a no-meat meal, the bun from any sandwich can be toasted with sliced cheese. Think you might want pickle chips, lettuce and tomato, too? Order a Chick-fil-A Deluxe, hold the chicken.




"I didn't know I was going to have a baby in there! I was going to the restroom," she told KSAT.

By the time she made it to the bathroom, the baby was already on its way. The manager at the store grabbed towels, and Robert, her husband, was forced to do the delivery. 

The couple told KSAT that Chick-fil-A happened to be their favorite local eating spot. They had already bought Gracelyn, their newborn, a Chick-Fil-A onesie before the incident happened. 

After all the stress, the family was rewarded with some exciting news. Gracelyn will be entitled to free food at the chain for life and a guaranteed job there when she hits 14. 

Chick-fil-A is considered to be one of the most loved chains in the fast-food industry. It earned the top spot in the American Customer Satisfaction Index's 2018 survey, beating out chains such as Panera Bread and Papa John's.

Customers rave about the restaurants' cleanliness, quick service, and hardworking employees, as well as its high-quality food.
