Let's Visit Chick-fil-A Flemington!

It's about time! Chick-fil-A has opened in Flemington, NJ! I have loved Chick-fil-A for years, ever since visiting them on family vacations to Florida. The food was always good, and I was sad that we didn't have them here in New Jersey.Well, times they are a changin', and Chick-fil-A's have finally made their way further north! The latest addition to our community can be found in Flemington, New Jersey. Take a look!

I was so excited to receive passes for the Premiere Night of Chick-fil-A Flemington. My dinner date for the evening was none other than The Jersey Momma's Boy, who was just as excited as excited can be (dare I say, a little too excited?).



Where is Chick-fil-A Flemington?

Chick-fil-A Flemington is located just past the circle on Rt 202S. Their exact address is 287 USHwy 202/31S in Flemington.  If you're on the run, they even have a drive-thru window.




What is Chick-fil-A Flemington like?

Chick-fil-A Flemington is clean, bright and family friendly. Super family friendly, in fact, since there is a brand new play area for the kiddos, and plenty of happy little cows all over the place, proclaiming you should 'eat more chikin.'

Chick-fil-A Flemington is family owned and operated.  The owner is a Flemington resident with young children of his own. His whole family attended the premiere event, and his oldest daughter was even dressed in a little cow-inspired outfit with a white tutu. Does this matter?  Why, yes it does, in this mom's opinion.  I like supporting local businesses of local residents, and my hope is that a family-oriented owner would keep his establishment in tip-top shape.  It matters to him, too, after all.



What is the food like at Chick-fil-A Flemington?

The premiere night was totally amazing and we were presented with an array of items from the Chick-fil-A menu.  My date happens to be the pickiest eater on the planet (if there was a trophy for this, he'd have it in his possession, I assure you) and he loved just about everything they served us.  Here's what we sampled:

Chick-fil-A Classic Sandwich (my favorite- it's my go-to at Chick-fil-A. If you've never been to Chick-fil-A and don't know what to order, I suggest this!)
Chick-fil-A Chicken Breakfast Biscuit (Chick-fil-A is open for breakfast, and I must say the biscuit sandwich was delicious. Our server said it was her favorite, too)
Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich (very fresh tomatoes and lettuce, great flavor)
Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich (would you believe this was the Jersey Momma's Boy's favorite?)
Chick-fil-A Market Salad (it is no secret that I am not a salad lover, but this salad was amazing! I would definitely order it again, and I can't say I've ever had a salad quite like it)
Chick-fil-A Waffle Fries (need I say more?)

Lemonade: freshly squeezed, yummy
Iced Coffee: I am not usually an iced coffee drinker, either, but I liked this, too, and would definitely order again!
Fruit Cup (very fresh- manadarin oranges, apples, blueberries, strawberries)

Cookies and Cream Oreo Milkshake: Chick-fil-A's milkshakes are amazing! Be sure to try these if you haven't before. You won't be sorry.
Chocolate Chunk Cookie: they gave us each one of these to take home, and it was still warm. I ate it right before I went to bed and I couldn't sleep after that, so I don't recommend it as a night time treat! Ha! It tasted like it was home-made, though.

Premiere Night at Chick-fil-A Flemington

At Premiere Night, we were able to visit and dine a few days before Chick-fil-A Flemington had its grand opening.  All of the employees were super friendly and helpful. Many corporate employees and team builders from across the country were there to welcome us and assist with the opening of this new location.


We were treated to food sampling, a raffle, and tours of their spotless kitchen. Spotless, I tell you! I was also psyched to see all of the fresh ingredients that they use with my own two eyes.


We didn't win anything in the raffle (boo hoo) but we were allowed to take home these sweet little cows and a travel mug each (The Jersey Momma's Boy presented his to Mr. Jersey Momma, since he was not in attendance), as well as some cute Chick-fil-A paper hats. So we were all winners in my book! They also gave us some coupons to share! YEAH!!  Read on to find out how you can get one!


The play area is super clean and features a slide, a climb-through area, hands-on play items and a little Chick-fil-A car to climb in.  The whole area is enclosed with its own door and glass viewing area. Parents can sit inside or right outside the door.  There is a hand-sanitizer dispenser at the door, as well.

I was impressed with the attention to detail at premiere night and the freshness of the food. I was equally impressed with the helpful, friendly staff. The owner, Ryan, spoke to all of us personally, and one of the things he said was, 'I want people to say [after visiting Chick-fil-A Flemington] 'that place is nice and their food is great, but those people who work there are awesome.'  I agree with this one-hundred percent! Poor service can destroy a business. So if you can keep up the combination of good food, cleanliness, and great staff, then you've got a good thing going!
