PHOENIX - It's food news that quickly went national: Chick-Fil-A is testing mac and cheese at some of its restaurants, and Phoenix is one of the lucky markets.
The fast-food chain confirmed it is testing the new side item as part of a "limited-time test" in six markets, including Phoenix, Greensboro, North Carolina, San Antonio and Houston in Texas, Nashville, Tennessee, and Baltimore, Maryland.
"These tests will help Chick-fil-A decide whether or not the menu item will become available nationwide in the future," the company said in a statement.
The new side comes in two sizes -- small and large.
On a recent visit to a restaurant in Chandler, an employee said the item had been on the menu for "a while."
