Students who miss J Street’s Chick-Fil-A can get their fast food fix when the chain’s new food truck hits D.C.’s streets this April.

The eatery known for its waffle fries and chicken sandwiches will begin rolling through the District April 9, NBC Washington reported Monday.

In August, the University swapped Chick-Fil-A for Thyme – which offered home-style foods – as part of a broad J Street overhaul that followed years of student complaints about expensive, unhealthy and limited options . But that venue was nixed this spring to add Indian cuisine from Aroma Restaurant to the dining hub.
