PETA people protested the Chick-Fil-A truck at Farragut North today . . . but failed to deter fans of the fried chicken sandwich. Photographs by Anna Spiegel.
After a series of practice runs, Chick-fil-A’s mobile unit opened for lunch today, serving chicken sandwich goodness out of a truck parked at Farragut North.
