Yesterday (April 8), New York City collectively salivated over a future of finger lickin’ goodness after a report announced Chick-Fil-A’s plan to open numerous restaurants in the five boroughs. While the southern establishment is sure to quiet many of our stomachs’ rumblings, there’s a list of notable fast food joints that have yet to infiltrate the city.

Pair those with independent proprietors that specialize in sandwiches and other delights, and that should be enough, right?
Check social media, and you’ll see folks clamoring over the greasy foods that they wish they could get their mitts on. Soon Chick-Fil-A will be off of that list, but here’s 10 more establishments NYC needs.
