When we were down in Peachtree City last month for a marathon lacrosse tournament weekend, we were so excited to try Truett’s Luau for the first time! I learned about it at my Chick-fil-A Mom’s Panel day and was intrigued.
This restaurant was Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy’s last project, at the age of 92 before he passed. He wanted the restaurant to be a special place focused on having fun and celebrating life with family and friends. When we walked inside and were greeted by Hawaiian decor AND the signature Chick-fil-A friendliness, we knew we were in for a treat!
Nearly every piece of décor used in the restaurant was handpicked by Truett himself. He had a vision to “bring Hawaii to Fayetteville” and that he did. I particularly loved this Steve Penley painting – he’s a southern born UGA grad and his work was all over the Coke building too .
We opted to sit on the table service side after a long day in the hot sun, but there is also a quick serve and a drive through. In addition to traditional Chick-fil-A fare, they also had unique menu items. We tried the Hawaiian Nachos, Kalua Pork Sandwich with sweet potato waffle fries and Frosted Pineapples! It’s still fast food, but it was good.
If you live in Fayetteville or Peachtree City or find yourself in that neck of the woods, stop in! We love hunting down places to eat that are unique to the area we’re in and having sporting events all over the city let’s us do it a lot. :-)
