The majority of local readers who have weighed in on the idea of Chick-fil-A coming to Lake County seem to be echoing what "the voice" told Ray Kinsella in Field of Dreams: "If you build it, they will come."
Readers have commented on various local Patch Facebook pages.
"This will be your new fave!" said one enthusiastic reader. "Great healthy food and great company! Welcome CFA!"
"I love Chick-fil-A!" said another reader.
, proposing a store near Routes 21 and 60.
It would be the first Chick-fil-A in Lake County, and many readers are happy about the possibility.
"They have been out here in Phoenix for several years. Very, very good chicken and not at all greasy. We do not eat out at fast food type places often. But when we did try them, their food was good," said a reader.
"It has great shakes, too," added another.
Yet another described Chick-fil-A as "so freaking good," while another reader said: "Sweet! Bringing the south up here to the north. I love Chick-fil-A (and miss it)!"
A couple of other readers didn't seem as excited.
One reader didn't enjoy a grilled chicken sandwich ordered at a Chick-fil-A in Florida. "I've heard good things, but my only visit won't send me back," said the reader.
Another said it "sounds like just another fried fast-food place that specializes in fried chicken. I don't eat it, so I won't be stopping in."
While most Vernon Hills trustees generally said they like the idea of the fast-food chain coming to town, they have concerns about the plans to construct the store’s main entrance near the drive-through lanes. Under the plans, pedestrians would have to cross two drive-through lanes to enter the building through its main entrance.
