Sandwich Of The Week: Dwarf House Chick-Fil-A

In-N-Out and Shake Shack, McDonald's, Runza, Chico's Tacos — everyone has their fast food obsessions. For some, the lesser-known regional chains are keystones of comfort, the quick fix that reminds of home. For others, regional chains are new worlds to conquer and explore. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, visiting the spot where a chain's origin myth started can be fun. Such it is with Chick-fil-A, which started in Atlanta.

OK, OK, but how about the sandwiches, hey? Well, what are you there for? Are you a purist? Do you go chicken sandwich? Deluxe? Spicy?

At The Dwarf House, the spicy chicken platter with waffle fries comes with a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. The bottom bun half gets condensed to become thin and a little sweet. Crunchy, crispy, salty, with a little mustard and zest. It's a pretty tasty fast-food sandwich. There's also a bottle of vinegar-soaked hot peppers to add some heat, and of course, sweet Chick-fil-A sauce and buttermilk ranch dressing. A glass of sweet tea, a view of those old-school stools at the counter, the knowledge that you can swing by at 3 a.m. if you're jonesing for a fried chicken sandwich, do you need anything else? Heck, The Dwarf House menu even features a steak sandwich and "Dwarf burgers." Just don't tell the cows.
