Duh, the Chick-fil-A Truck Drew a Big Line and Backlash

There was no question that the launch of the Chick-fil-A food truck was going to bring out the obsessives and the crowds given that every opening of a new Chick-fil-A location inspires people to camp out for free food. There was also no doubt that it was going to inspire a lot of outrage over the millions of dollars the chain donates to anti-gay groups. Also, outrage from PETA over the fact that a chicken chain sells chicken sandwiches.

So anyway, how was Chick-fil-A's truck received on its first day in DC? Take a spin through the gallery above to see how long that line got during the truck's first lunch hour in Farragut Square, plus some PETA protestors and tweets from those in the local food scene, including Washington Post food editor Joe Yonan who cleverly suggests "a same-sex kiss-in at the truck."
