When Does Chick-fil-A Serve Lunch?

By Lana Kisner | November 5, 2023

When lunchtime comes around, it means Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwiches and waffle fries are up for grabs! All Chick-fil-A restaurants start serving lunch at 10:30 a.m. and sell lunch menu items until closing time, which is typically around 10 p.m. Just keep in mind that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, so never show up there on a Sunday with an empty stomach!

While 10:30 a.m. marks the official start of the lunch menu at Chick-fil-A, you may be wondering if you can order your favorite lunch items during Chick-fil-A’s breakfast hours. Read on to find out everything you need to know before heading over to your nearest location.

Can You Order Lunch Items During Breakfast Hours?

Chick-fil-A officially starts serving lunch at 10:30 a.m., but some restaurants allow lunch items to be ordered during breakfast hours. So, if you’re craving Chick-n-Strips or a Cobb Salad at 9:30 a.m., you may be able to get them!

Since Chick-fil-A restaurants are individually owned and operated, ordering lunch items during breakfast hours varies by location, says Chick-fil-A on an X thread below.

The best thing you can do is just ask nicely, and they might accommodate your request! Like most fast-food chains, Chick-fil-A has strict hours for their menu items to serve more efficiently. Also note that if you order lunch items during breakfast or vice versa, be prepared to wait a little longer.

Now that you know Chick-fil-A’s lunch hours, let’s take a look at what you can order on their lunch menu.

What Is on Chick-fil-A’s Lunch Menu?

Chick-fil-A’s lunch menu includes fried and grilled chicken sandwiches, wraps, chicken nuggets, salads, and side items. Meals come with waffle fries and a drink, but you can order another side item for an additional charge.

Chick-fil-A’s Cool Wrap takes the grilled chicken breast, shredded Monterey and Cheddar cheeses, and green leaf lettuce and wraps it all in a flaxseed flour flatbread. I highly recommend adding their Avocado Lime Ranch dressing to your wrap!

Chick-fil-A Nuggets are bite-sized pieces of chicken breast that are breaded, seasoned, and pressure-cooked in peanut oil. These are one of the most popular items on the menu and come with your choice of Chick-fil-A’s dipping sauces.
