Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The patience of L.A. fans of Southern-bred Chick-fil-A's hyped chickeny deliciousness has been tested over the past few months, as the much-touted location at the corner of Highland and Sunset remained under construction and prep for opening.

When the cows came to town last year, opening was slated for May. Now we have it right from the chicken's mouth (aka an official press release) that the Hollywood Chick-fil-A will open on September 22nd.

Like when they opened in Valencia in July 2010, the Hollywood Chick-fil-A will open at 6 a.m. and offer free Chick-fil-A for a year for the first 100 adults in line. "The registration line for the promotion opens at the restaurant at 6 a.m., Sept. 21, and typically more than 100 have been waiting when registration begins. In that case, a raffle system is used to determine the first 100 who remain," explains Chick-fil-A.

Now of course, there's the matter of "Good chicken, bad politics?" Even free chicken comes with a price though, and some may be willing to overlook the company's stance on some controversial issues. If you're that kind of mothercluckin' chicken lover, and you spend time in Hollywood, this is indeed good news.
