The new Chick-Fil-A in Crystal City will open its doors on Thursday, Nov. 18, a PR rep for the Georgia-based company told ARLnow.com this afternoon.

The eagerly-anticipated restaurant will be located between the Corner Bakery Cafe and the Neramitra Thai restaurant on the 2200 block of Crystal Drive.

A groundbreaking ceremony featuring a company executive and the famous Chick-Fil-A cow was held in July.

The 3,683 square-foot restaurant will seat up to 81 people. It’s owned by a franchisee and mother of four, Natalie Yang, who is moving from Georgia to run the restaurant.

    • hooooos

      Thank you. The answer to this question would make my life complete.

    • Jack

      please open soon!!

    • MrCar

      How about a “Quaker Steak and Lube”? It’s a place I can take my significant other car without her feeling like a second class citizen.

    I often crave unhealthy food made by fundamentalist Prop-8-supporting, gay-hating Christian fast food joints and Domino’s just isn’t cutting it anymore.

      Interesting how they apparently support the right of cows to earn a decent living, but when it comes to the gay marriaging, it’s a whole other story!

    • Jack

      whatever – this gay man will happily be willing to eat your portion and then some. chick-fil-a is awesome!!

      • Brandon C

        I am often warned by gay friends how incredibly hypocritical some of their fellow gays are. So enjoy patronizing a company who tries to keep you from having your civil rights while us progressive straight folks try to make sure you have them at all. You’re very f**king welcome.

        • Jack

          i didn’t ask for your help… and i don’t think you know what “hypocritical” means.

          • Brandon C

            I’m very well educated, thanks. Maybe when the secret police are knocking at your odoor (God forbid), you’ll wish you actually gave a crap. Enjoy your f**king sandwich.

          • Jack

            i’m not trying to offend you… but people are more influenced by knowing a gay person than a so-called boycott. it’s silly to pick a sandwich based on political viewpoints. plus – there are a lot of conservative gay people out there. we can’t be lumped all together in politics.

          • Anton Noosbusch

            There are gay conservatives, sure, but they tend not to vote against their civil liberties. Your point is, well, pointless.

    • DVDA

      Blah, blah, blah.

    • ArlAaron

      It must be torture to live life as a one dimensional character.

  • Cat

    domino’s doesn’t sell waffle fries.

    • rob42

      no, but they sell an awesome lava cake

  • MikeyInCrystalC

    Woot! Time to camp out!

  • MC

    A huge set-back for Crystal City’s redevelopment away from anodyne mall-dome. I can see the tour buses dropping off school and tour groups.

  • Black Flag

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzz, more fast food.

  • Thirsty

    I wish they’d add just one more pickle to the chicken sandwich. That would make it extra delicious.

    • Clarendude

      I’ll second that, you can never have too much pickle. Maybe they’d slip you a pickle if you asked.

      • ThirstyTerp

        Ew! No pickles! Unless you’re gay. Then it’s ok.

        Just kidding. I love how these comments always transform into shouting matches.

  • natalie yang

    When you come to Chick-fil-a at Crystal City…Just ask for extra pickles…it’s free

  • Arlington Bill

    It’ll be a nice addition and option in CC.

  • Oh Chipotle, how I love you sooooo….but now I’ll have to walk across the street and get my chicken on with Natalie!! MMMMM. Chick-Fil-A is amazing!! I, along with many others, will support an openly Christian-loving company who follows the words of the Bible anytime! Welcome to Arlington, Natalie! May God Bless You in this new adventure! You will see me often πŸ™‚

  • Chick-fil-a fan!!
