Chick-Fil-A Brought Mac and Cheese To Their Menu 3 Years Ago…

It is the 3 year anniversary of the addition of Chick-Fil-A Mac and Cheese to their menu.

We were very excited about it at the time.  In fact, this is a direct quote from us about the Chick fil A Mac n cheese:

All I can say is WOW. I am so excited for what is about to happen… Chick-Fil-A Is Bringing Mac and Cheese To Their Menu and I feel like my life is now complete. 


Chick fil A Mac n Cheese

First off, can I just say that it is about time someone brings mac and cheese to their drive-thru? This has been one of the greatest things about this historic event. Take note other fast food chains!

I have a kid that doesn’t love most fast food, but mac n cheese is a favorite. 

The other good thing about Chick-fil-A’s mac n cheese is that it comes in two sizes.  One is a side dish helping and one is pretty large…big enough for a full meal even for an adult.

Chick-Fil-A has been delivering this amazing cheesiness to us, nice and hot and straight to our cars since Monday, August 12th, 2019.

In celebration of the big anniversary {giggle}, you can pick up Mac and Cheese at their drive-thru too!

Originally the Chick-fil-A mac n cheese was only available in selected areas like: Baltimore, Greensboro, Houston, San Antonio, Nashville, and Phoenix, but the delicious side dish mac n cheese is available nationwide.

I know, because we regularly order it and I don’t live in any of those cities.

Chick-fil-A Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

Hack Chick fil A’s mac and cheese by ordering an order of nuggets or grilled nuggets, mac n cheese, zesty buffalo sauce and garden herb ranch sauce and ask for a full flatware set because you will need a knife.

Chop your chicken nuggets into small pieces and mix them into the mac n cheese. Drizzle both sauces over the combination for a savory and spicy meal. You can vary the sauce amount to suit your taste.

Have you tried the Chick-fil-A mac n cheese?  Do you love it?


  1. All I can say is Chick-fil-A’s mac and cheese really isn’t that great. And it’s more compared to a frozen dinner from Stauffers. In fact I don’t think there are many kids at all that will like this

  2. My daughter works at a CFA in Oklahoma, and they’ll be serving it too. She said she got to try it and loved it, said it tastes homemade. It takes about 2 hours from start to finish to make it…..they don’t use microwaves. They thaw it out and then bake it. I can’t wait to tey it!

  3. Roger Snook says:

    Mac and Cheese will be available nationwide beginning Minday, August 12th. The locations you mentioned were cities where it was tested the last two years.
