COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Former President Jimmy Carter is just like most southerners - he likes to stop at a local Chick-fil-A at lunchtime, despite the crowds. 

The 39th President of the United States was all smiles in a photo with the friendly staff at the Chick-fil-A location on Wynnton Road on Tuesday around 1 p.m. 

"President Jimmy Carter stopped by for lunch today. Not every day you get a former POTUS stopping in for some delicious Chick-fil-A!" the Facebook post says. 

President Carter was holding a cup of coffee and dressed casually. There is no word on if he objects to the new barbecue sauce or was team #BringBackTheSauce.
