VERIFY: Viral photo of chicken wings in Chick-fil-A box is real, but it needs context

Chick-fil-A is not testing chicken wings and you can not order them at traditional restaurants. Here's what we found.

ATLANTA — A viral post on social media showing what appears to be Chick-fil-A wings has foodies going wild in Atlanta. The photo shows chicken wings with a Chick-fil-A label on the box. Some captions say that Chick-fil-A is looking for feedback from the Nashville location -- and that they could soon be coming to town. 

11Alive looked into this claim and reached out to the Atlanta-based fast food chain. 

THE QUESTION

Does Chick-fil-A plan to serve wings at already-existing restaurants?

- Little Blue Menu

WHAT WE FOUND

The viral post is real and comes from a "virtual restaurant" in Nashville. However, wing lovers cannot just walk into any restaurant and buy the wings, nor are they testing them.

THE ANSWER

This is false.

Chick-fil-A opened Little Blue Menu, a delivery kitchen concept in 2021. Only available in Nashville, the concept has several "virtual restaurants," one of them being Outfox Wings. The kitchen also offers items from a traditional Chick-fil-A menu. 

"Customers can mix and match items from Chick-fil-A and the virtual restaurants, and have them delivered in one bundled order," the spokesperson told 11Alive. 

Little Blue Menu is a delivery kitchen concept created by Chick-fil-A, Inc. The virtual restaurants within Little Blue Menu, including Outfox Wings, were created by the menu team at Chick-fil-A, they said. 

According to its website, the Little Blue Menu concept grew from testing and tweaking hundreds of recipes until the virtual restaurant identities were born: Flock & Farm, Garden Day, and Outfox Wings. 

When asked if Atlanta could soon see its own Little Blue Menu or Outfox Wings, they said they don't have any plans "at this time."
