The News of Chick-fil-a’s Limited-Edition Side Dish is Spreading like Wildfire & Snatching Hearts

November 3, 2018

If I had a dime for all the people who, when asking if they like Chick-fil-a answered “Heck no”, I may only have enough coins to drop in a gumball machine with no return of a gumball.

Very few can deny the southern charm of Chick-fil-a; it’s addictive and contagious.

Even if not the original chicken sandwich, there is something for everyone on the menu. Perhaps Chick-fil-a’s buttery, soft, crumbly biscuit or their waffles fries.

To top it all off, the customer service is outstanding (more times than not).

But don’t worry, it gets better…

Because if not any of those, you’ll swiftly fall for their newest limited edition side-dish of Mac & Cheese snatching the hearts of all who try it.


Just see for yourself, she’s a beauty and actually looks much like the mac my grandma in South Carolina makes.

And guess what? 

According to Business Insider, the mac & cheese sold at fast-food locations closely resembles the popular, house-made mac & cheese sold at the 12 locations of Dwarf House, Chick-fil-a’s full-service restaurant originating 1946 in Hapeville, Georgia.

And we all can agree, Chick-fil-a can do NO wrong.

Nearly everything on Chick-fil-a’s menu (aside from some of the grilled items) is delectable, almost irresistible–especially on nights where food is scarce after a long day at work.

Do you think Chick-fil-a would fail you with a home-cooked favorite? 

I don’t think so.

The fast-food chain has started testing mac & cheese since 2017 alongside a family-style menu first in Tennesee, experimenting with several recipes before settling on one.

And since then there’s been a domino effect.

Made with a cheese blend including Romano, Parmesan, and Cheddar, people are  yapping about the Mac & Cheese being sold in the following cities:

(reported by Delish)

Phoenix, AZ
Greensboro, NC
San Antonio, TX
Nashville, TN
Baltimore, MD
Houston, TX

USA Today listed the prices for a small order starting at $2.79 for a medium and for $4.39 for a large.

Customers in the aforementioned markets can also use Chick-fil-a’s homestyle mac and cheese to fake out family and friends on Thanksgiving with their catering menu with two options:  a small tray ($33) and a large tray ($64.50).

What’s next?

As of late October, Chick-fil-a hasn’t released a statement promising a nationwide rollout.

So, in the meantime, you’ll have to cross your fingers & make the mac & cheese on Thanksgiving and hope for a Christmas surprise.

Sorry to disappoint you. 


Keep your eyes peeled by following Chickfila on all social platforms: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & Youtube.

Let me know in the comments if you’re planning on driving to one of the selected cities for Chick-fil-a’s Mac & Cheese!
