Nando’s opened in Harrogate yesterday (June 3) and sent the Internet into a cheeky meltdown.
Judging from the overwhelmingly positive Twitter reaction, it seems to be the greatest thing to come to Harrogate since the Tour de France.
With our tweetdeck and news feed overflowing with cheeky tweets from people enjoying their chicken, we decided to examine the nine different types of reaction to its arrival.
For many, it was anticipation with Harrogate on the edge of their seat for that first bite of chicken.

Finally, a definitive answer to the question I was asked most often as a Harrogate reporter: “Is Harrogate getting a Nandos?” Opens today.
Other kept their eyes firmly on the prize.
