We all know Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, but could that change in Oklahoma??

For some reason, when you're most craving Chick-fil-A, it's always Sunday and then you realize that you can't get your chicken nuggets because Chick-fil-A is closed! But a recent bill in New York could change all that. So we're asking, could that also change in Oklahoma??

According to Fortune, lawmakers in New York recently "introduced a bill that would require restaurants in state highway system rest areas to operate seven days a week." We all know that Sundays are a no-go for Chick-fil-A. And so much so that Chick-fil-A was specifically mentioned in the legislative materials, but the bill would include Chick-fil-A to be open on Sundays.

Why is Chick-fil-A closed on Sundays?

Being closed on Sundays has been the business's practice since its founding. According to the Chick-fil-A website, its restaurants are closed on Sundays so its workers could have time to rest, spend time with family or "worship if they choose."

Why does New York want Chick-fil-A to open on Sundays?

Now in New York, this is being challenged by lawmakers. According to the bill, this would apply to all Chick-fil-A restaurants located in rest stops that are operated by Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The lawmaker who authored the bill stated that the reasoning for this bill " is meant to give travelers in New York a variety of food options, including healthy foods, at rest stops..."

@snachwithzach Chick-fil-A’s policy of being closed on Sundays is often a topic of much discussion amongst the food community. It has once again become a point of interest in a new New York State draft bill (A08336) which would require any future food and beverage vendors (including the Atlanta-based fast food chain) to operate seven days a week in service plazas operated by the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey. There is a lot of conflicting information regarding this bill, so let’s take a look at it to understand it further. #chickfila#fastfood#foodnews#foodtok#friedchicken#restaurant#travel#chicken#fries#hospitality#fyp ♬ Cafe music, corporate VP, comfortable(1277239) - zukisuzuki

Ten Iconic Oklahoma Restaurants You Have To Try

I think it's fair to say that each state probably has its own legends when it comes to restaurants. Pennsylvania has cheesesteaks, New York has wings and pizza, Texas has Franklin BBQ and Tex-Mex, etc...

Oklahoma is no different.

Birthed into statehood as a cattle state, there's no shortage of beef on any menu here, but there's a little room for chicken and fries too. Here are the absolute, hands down, best restaurants, in no particular order, everyone has to try in The Sooner State.
