New Chick-fil-A in Dallas’s Historic National Building

The ground floor of the tenth tallest building in Dallas is now home to a new Chick-fil-A. The National, a historic 52-story skyscraper at 1401 Elm St Elm Street, was closed in 2010 and reopened in 2020 after the most expensive building conversion in Dallas’s history. This new Chick-fil-A location, spanning 4,720 square feet was opened sometime last year.
