    I am so glad I don’t live on that block of G Street. That block is already difficult when it comes to accommodating two-way traffic and parking on both sides of the street; I can only imagine the kind of traffic the city’s only drive-through Chick-Fil-A is going to attract.

  • NoManon

    Looking forward to hitting CrossFit then eating Chic-fil-a breakfast sandwiches for time.

  • LA

    is it only drive thru? or a restaurant too?

    • It’s also sit down.

      • NewToNE

        But why doesn’t it have any windows?

        • Julia Vipsania

          We’ve started calling it SCIF-fil-A for that very reason!

          • JumpForJoy

            That was lost on me initially… (googled SCIF)! I LOVE IT! I shall call it nothing else from this point on. Thank you!

        I thought it was going to be much like the old Checkers that was there – only a couple seats outside for the walk-up windows. Having worked at CFA before, the DTO in the name usually means Drive-Through Only.

        Also, seems like they changed the opening date to May 24th on their website:

        Opening: May 24, 2017
        1401 Maryland Ave NE
        Washington, DC 20002

    3 people already in line

  • James

    Is there going to be a kids play area? Probably not, right?

    • MadMax

      Only on week days before 6PM.

  • SF

    Just a terrible use of space and a missed opportunity for the entire neighborhood. Frustrating to see a suburban fast-food drive thru able to secure and poorly develop a parcel of prime inner neighborhood real estate.

    • MadMax

      You’re frustrated that a buyer paid the amount a seller was asking for real estate?

      • SF

        City development and zoning failures at this point, which you know is an issue but I guess you couldn’t resist another smarmy know-it-all Mensa-lite comment.
