    Chicken lovers from across the country camped out in front of a Walnut Creek restaurant, in order to be among the first to eat at the East Bay's new Chik-fil-A location, according to reports.

    Eager chicken eaters camped out in the restaurant's drive through lane beginning at 5:30 a.m., SF Weekly reported. The first 100 people to stay overnight in order to feast upon chicken received coupons for 52 free meals, the newspaper reported.
    Chick-fil-A is a magnet for controversy as well as fried chicken sandwiches. It was only a few months ago that the restaurant chain's corporate head, Dan Cathy, made news with statements opposing gay marriage.
