So construction work has begun on the former Bilbo's Pizza site on South Westnedge in Portage. Soon it will be a Chick-Fil-A restaurant. Ok. It's a chicken sandwich.

Look, I realize food is a very personal thing. Foods I get excited about, you may go "meh", and vice-versa. We had a Krispy-Kreme practically next door to the Chick-Fil-A site, and that came and went in about two years.The locals decided Sweetwater's was their doughnut.

At the same time, I couldn't wait for the Carrabba's to open back about a decade ago. It's still one of our favorite places.

That said, it's a chicken sandwich. Big whoop.

But you know what we really need here? A White Castle. That's what we really need. Personally, I'd put it on Stadium Dr., so to be near campus. Chick-Fil-A is a slab of chicken with a pickle. A White Castle is a hamburger (stop laughing) with a pickle. Hamburger trumps pickle. I could eat six right now.
