KFC's parent company has unleashed a Chick-fil-A killer

Taco Bell parent company Yum! Brands is expanding its wildly popular chicken sandwich concept, called Super Chix.

Yum! said it’s building a second location in Dallas, according to industry blog Nation’s Restaurant News. The first location opened last year in Arlington, Texas. 

The chain, which has been called a Chick-fil-A knock-off, sells fried chicken sandwiches, chicken strips, frozen custard, and french fries.

Here’s a look at the inside of the Arlington restaurant (click and drag your cursor for a 360-degree view).

The chicken sandwich, which comes with pickles, lettuce and tomato, is the highlight of the menu.

It’s served on a freshly baked buttered and you can choose to add bacon, cheese jalapenos, and other toppings to the sandwich as well. 

Customers rave about the food onYelp, where it has a rating of four out of five stars from 96 reviews.

“‘The last original chicken sandwich’ is their slogan. I can clearly see why after I finished lunch there this afternoon,” wrote one reviewer. “The quality is phenomenal and at a more than decent price!”

The basic chicken sandwich costs $US3.95 and fries cost $US1.95.

The french fries, which are hand cut in the restaurant, have three seasoning options: Salt, sweet, and rosemary and black pepper. 

“I love how fresh the food is; the food is refreshing in a way most fast food isn’t,” another Yelp reviewer wrote. “You don’t leave and feel worse after eating at Super Chix; you leave and then wish you had another serving of Super Chix.”

Customers also raved about the grilled chicken sandwich, which is served on an oatmeal bun.

For dessert, Super Chix serves frozen custard with toppings such as Oreo, M&M’s, graham crackers and Butterfingers. 

“Super Chix is a great alternative to Chick-fil-A,” a Yelp reviewer wrote. “The chicken tenders and burger are very tasty, but you MUST order the frozen custard! They have a different flavour for each day of the week. Guess I’ll have to come here at least six more times!”

The chicken fingers are also a favourite. Super Chix offers a “signature” dipping sauce, as well as honey mustard, hot sauce and ranch.
