Yeah, I think Popeyes has the better, crunchier seasoned breading, but CFA is pretty consistent when it comes to quality, and their chicken is almost never dried out and old tasting. Most other fast food restaurants can vary dramatically in quality from one location to another.

True - We have a new Popeyes and I’ve been 3 times. They’ve yet to fill my order accurately. FWIW - very underwhelmed I would never pass a Chick-Fil-A to visit Popeyes

Okay, forget the sandwich, I'm really just interested in the red beans and rice.

And maybe a biscuit.

All these posts and no one here has gotten hold of one of those sandwiches yet?

The closest Popeye's is about 15 miles from me. From what I've heard, they're sold out here too.

I do believe there was a very concerted social media campaign on this which generated this hype. Obviously that would affect younger people who watch Youtubers a lot more. But the theory on social media campaigns is that once the hype reaches a certain level it will affect most people, even those who dont consume the initial marketing materials, by triggering conversation (like this thread).

Then of course theres those who love to hate on Cfa for nonfood reasons as well.
....you can always ask for "no mayo".

We were just talking abt this at work the other day.
I was telling my co-worker that I'd never eaten at Popeye's.
He was raving abt how good it was, even better than KFC.

Then I come on here and hear the same thing, gosh I feel like I'm missing out...lol

There's one by Winco, so I'll have to give it a try.

It is better than KFC, but it's still fast food. I eat at Popeye's only about 3-4 times a year, and enjoy it when I do. All things in moderation.

When I lived in New Orleans, there was seemingly a Popeye's on every corner. Almost like Starbucks now. That's hyperbole, of course, but there were a lot of them for sure.

I was thinking of making this post. Had Chick fill A's chicken sandwich about five times in my life. Just tried Popeye's chicken sandwich about nine days ago. Popeye's is better than Chick Fill A's. I did the original version the first time, and tried the spicy version the second time. I've actually had Popeyes Chicken sandwich three times now, and all three times it was like heaven. The meat is so juicy and tender (and huge), with crispy coating, and the bun fits so perfectly, holding the meat within two crispy fresh perfectly placed pickles. The only downside if any for me was that the spicy wasn't spicy enough. Outside of that, it was the best chicken sandwich that I've ever eaten. And I'm not surprised that it would be Popeyes who made it. It's as close as can be to being a damn near perfect chicken sandwich. I'm such a fan of Popeyes!
