Not sure if this is the case for Popeyes at Concord Mills but a lot of times the food court prices are higher than the regular stores.

And sometimes food court and travel plaza stores are not as good quality as the regular stores, and the prices are often indeed higher.

Roy Rogers is now expanding again in Northern Virginia and Maryland. Nice clean stores and good food.

As one of the original posters back when this thread started in 2008, I couldn't be happier to see more stores opening up. I've been to the Concord Mills, Mooresville, Rock Hill and Concord locations, Concord is by far my favorite. For some reason, the chicken is always made fresh there, not at all like at Concord Mills. The prices at the mall are higher, and of course the strips cost more than the actual chicken pieces. You can usually get 8 pieces, 2 sides and 4 biscuits with a gallon of tea for $20 if you stay away from the food court. I still say that there is no comparison for flavor and value between Popeyes and Bojangles. I would agree with Carmen that the Publix box of chicken would be my favorite second choice.

A new Popeyes opened in Gastonia back in September on Franklin Blvd. Next to Lowe's and Kmart. I stopped there a week ago when I was passing through the area. Their spicy fried chicken was crisp and fresh, and had great flavor and nice portions. A bit more of a spicy kick than Bojangle's. Cajun rice was also good. Nice clean store, and they are apparently continuing their expansion in the Charlotte market. I hope they will eventually move into the Greenville/Spartanburg area of SC, but Bojangle's continues to expand heavily here. But I will say I have also enjoyed Bojangle's chicken recently, which is also nicely seasoned and nice large portions. I am not pleased with the smaller, strange cuts of chicken at KFC these days. I will choose Popeyes or Bojangle's.

I noticed the Popeye's on east Franklin the other day. It was off hours but it was packed.

I went to the one on South Blvd last month and was really disappointed. It was so much better back in FL. I will stick with Bojangles or Zaxby's when I am craving deep fried goodness. (they probably ruined Popeye's for me in terms of flavor)

Well I thought the Gastonia Popeyes was good. But Bojangle's has indeed been good recently as they may have upgraded quality control. Nice large cuts of chicken, unlike KFC.
