5 of the Best Fast Food Restaurants in Castle Rock, Colorado


This family-friendly fast food chain is a definite pleaser. Never mind the fact that their chicken is the tastiest, or their staff is incredibly friendly, Chick-Fil-A goes above and beyond when it comes to service and making your life convenient. They offer a ‘Mommy Pick Up’ service that allows busy parents to order food from the drive thru, then pick it up for a quick sit-down meal inside before dashing off to soccer practice, allowing parents to keep the kids contained longer, and saving the kids from waiting in line at the register.

Their heavy focus on the family is the drive behind healthy options and family practices. Chick-Fil-A has recently rolled out a new challenge, encouraging families to pick up a box at the register and place all electronics in the box while sitting at the table. If your entire party can go the whole meal without opening the box, everyone gets an ice cream cone. Whether you’re rushing through the drive thru, or looking for a quick bite that still allows you to sit down with each other, Chick-Fil-A is definitely one of our favorite Castle Rock fast food joints.
