We have always loved Chick-fil-A. I know. I may have said it a time or two before. 🙂
And since becoming a blogger ambassador for our local Chick-fil-A Houston Road, I have grown to love them even more! They are just such a fabulous company, they are so good to their employees and the community.
And they are always thinking about families.
If you’re looking for a kid-friendly place with great food and lots to do this summer, escape the heat and stop by Chick-fil-A.
If you’re traveling through on your way to or from vacation and need to stop, eat and burn off some steam, you gotta stop at Chick-fil-A.
Here’s my “TOP 10” Reasons that Chick-fil-A is an amazing place to take the kids!
You can trade your kids meal toy in for a FREE IceDream. And if they aren’t busy….they let the kids come back and make it themselves!!!! But, actually the kids meal toys are always pretty awesome so we don’t do this every time. 🙂
You might have missed them or not realized what they are. The table mats and Cheerios are right in the condiment area by the straws. If you have babies or toddlers, these little extras are a great touch.
The healthier meal options at Chick-fil-A are so nice. You can get the regular kids meal with fried nuggets and waffle fries or you can swap them for gluten free options like grilled nuggets, a fruit-cup, squeezey apple sauce, milk or a juice box.
My kids still love the play area. It is always fun and always clean. I LOVE that you can see inside the play area from the booths in front of it.
The kids meal bags turn into cow puppets. Up-cycling at it finest! 🙂
Mommy Valet is AMAZING. I can’t say it enough. Sometimes ordering food with hungry kids tugging at our legs can be hectic. USE MOMMY VALET. Go through the drive through and after ordering just tell them it is Mommy Valet. After you pay at the window, just park. Your food will be set out at a table and waiting for you when you walk into the dining room! I MEAN……genius. Just genius.
Too hot outside? Are the kids bored? Have a little break or get some work done while the kids play. FREE WI-FI! (My husband is hilarious, I know!)
I feel like every restaurant should really have delicious after-dinner butter mints! Get rid of your chicken breath. Grab a mint or two!
There is always something fun going on. You can stay up-to-date with the events at Chick-fil-A Houston Road by checking out the event page here. We like to go to the Special Events because they never disappoint. And YES…I got a massage at Chick-fil-A. (Best one of my life, actually. Thank you Joe! )
They’re creative with the family activities. This summer Chick-fil-A Houston Road is having a “Cows on Vacation” Photo Contest!
The contest will run from May 1 – August 15, 2014
Pick up a “flat cow” from Chick-fil-A Houston Road and take your cow on vacation! Take pictures of you and your family with “flat cow” on your vacation and email it to [email protected]
You will be entered in the “Cows on Vacation” photo contest drawing! Every photo of you or your family with “flat cow” on vacation gives you another chance at the grand prize.
The grand prize is a Chick-fil-A Catered Party for 12 with a Cow Appearance! The second and third place prize is a “Milkshake party for 12”.
Rules: Each photo entered must be a separate destination…..(ie. Either a different city or different vacation destination within that city (like Statue of Liberty or Times Square). A family on a “staycation” can also enter….each entry from that family must be a different “field trip” or destination of that city (ie. Eden Park, Art Museum, History Museum, etc).
“Flat Cows” can be picked up at Chick-fil-A Houston Road (ask a dining room or front counter team member to help you).
And now….Do you want FREE BREAKFAST? Well, OK!
Every Wednesday in May is a FREE Breakfast Wednesday! 6:30-10am FREE Chicken Biscuit or Spicy Chicken Biscuit. One per person. Drive thru or Dine in. No coupon needed!
Don’t forget that you can join the text club, so you’ll never miss a fun event or a free chicken biscuit or sandwich! 🙂 Just text CFAHOUSTONROAD to 411247.
We will be having a twitter party on May 27th using the #nkycfa – 8-9 pm ET. There will be prizes for the locals!! Mark it on your calendar! 🙂
You can connect with Chick-fil-A Houston Road all over the place!

Wow! I love your Top 10 List! Chick-fil-A Houston Road is a great place for summer fun! We always stop on our way to or from Kings Island.
Sherryl @ SimplySherryl says
Love your Top 10 Reasons! Chick-fil-A is always the first choice when the little ones get to pick where we have lunch. I like scheduling meetings there so the littles and play and I can work with my VA or meet with other moms.
I really like the extra special nights the local store has been holding each month. They really are a part of our community.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I love Chick-fil-A, too, but we don’t have them around here where I live. When we were in CA last month, we went there three times in the week we were there so I could get my fix!
Jessica Cassidy says
I am not sure if we have one around our area. I really love this. It is perfect for family to bond and looks like they have many activities for the family. By the way, your kids are adorable. I love that it has a WiFi, the best ever 😉
I’ve never been to Chick Fil A in the USA (I’m in England) but I have friends who rave about it all of the time! I’ll get there one day!
I didn’t know about free chicken biscuit weds. That is awesome!

We Love Chick Fil A There Food Is So Delicious Kids Love It Too!1
OHHH Chick-Fil-A! Such a great place for us. We all love the food and the play area is the cleanest place to play I have ever seen!! I never have a problem grabbing the kids for a fun afternoon to our local one.
Shell Feis says
This post is leaving me all kinds of jealous because we don’t have Chick-fil-A here! We have it whenever we go on vacation but it’s totally not enough.
Well I know where I am going to go next Wednesday. I love chick-fil-a
I love that CFA offers such a nice array of healthy choices for kids and adults. CFA Houston Road is one of the best locations around.
Lynda Hall says
What is it about Chick Fillet- LOVE IT!
Courtney Pies says
I absolutely love the photo contest Chick-fil-A Houston Road is having! So clever!
I had no idea there was a Mommy Valet! Is that at every location?
I love theme nights and the healthy meal options! And free wifi!

Great post! I love all the pictures!
Word is we are getting a Chick-fil-a soon so I bookmarked your list in case that comes true! Which would be pretty awesome it sounds like!
Great post! Chick-fil-A really is more than just a restaurant!
I don’t know how many times we have been. Too many to could. And I never knew any of this. It really is amazing how kid friendly Chick Fil A is.
Kelly Hutchinson says
Chic FIl A is one of the few places I will eat outside of my home. I love their choices for GF as well as the trading in the toys for the Ice Dream.
Wow this Chic-Fil-A sounds 5 star. I wish that the one here would offer some of these awesome services. Thanks for sharing.
