Chick-Fil-A is headed to Harlem, and the first signs are now up.


The Southern fast food chain, known for its fried chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, is opening at 216 W 125th Street between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. and Frederick Douglass Boulevards—on the same block as the Apollo Theater.


In recent weeks the construction plywood covering the storefront has come down, revealing a two-story glass-paneled facade and Chick-Fil-A's familiar red mascot and logo.

The Chick-Fil-A on 125th Street will have two floors.

The location will open sometime in December, according to the location's dedicated Instagram account.


Reactions to the news first posted by TCU—83 comments and counting—were mixed.


While a few commenters said they were "very excited," others alluded to the chain's history of supporting anti-LGBTQ+ organizations or lamented the increasing lack of independent businesses on Harlem's famous strip.
