There’s no rule that says fast food has to make you feel terrible.

In recent years, American consumers have shown a craving for healthier fast food. Restaurant chains that offer low-calorie meals — that remain convenient and affordable — have sprouted across the US, forcing legacy brands like Taco Bell and McDonald’s to rethink their menus.

The fast-food revolution is no more apparent than in Rohnert Park, California, where a Chick-fil-A sits across the street from up-and-coming vegetarian fast-food chain Amy’s Drive Thru. On a visit to both restaurants, we found Amy’s buzzing with diners long after the lunch hour.

We tried sandwiches from both Amy’s and Chick-fil-A. Here’s what we liked better.

There was no shortage of options. A highway exit off Redwood Drive offers access to Arby’s, Taco Bell, Burger King, Amy’s Drive Thru, Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, and El Pollo Loco.

I decided to eat at Chick-fil-A before visiting Amy’s. They’re located across the street from each other, and they both make sandwiches the star of the menu.

Plus, Chick-fil-A generates more revenue per restaurant than any other fast-food chain in the US — a testament to the fried-chicken chain’s loyal fan base — according to QSR magazine.

Within the last few years, Chick-fil-A has remodeled hundreds of stores to give them a modern farmhouse feel. The Rohnert Park location showcased that new image.
