Popeyes has spicier chicken and more Cajun style side orders, such as Cajun rice and red beans and rice. But I do like a good KFC when you can find one. However the quality at some of their combo stores has declined a bit. But I do like the All You Can Eat KFC Buffett.

I am not seeing many Yum! Brands combination stores in operation these days except Pizza Hut/WingStreet. I wonder if Yum! Brands has focused on each brand being separate. Separate focus on each brand seems to improve overall performance and sales.

Do they still have any of the Long John Silver's/A&W combo stores in the area? I don't think Yum has had much success with reviving the A&W brand.

There are a few kicking around. I go to the one in Mauldin every so often, although I haven't really tried out the A&W side of the menu at any of the combo stores. Sometimes I'll pull into a Captain D's when I'm on a road trip, and by fast food standards, it really does blow Long John Silvers out of the water.

I agree. I mean if you really want to eat fried chicken then stop at a Clock/Petes/Lil Rebel and get better food than a chain, all while supporting a local establishment.

It's not an either-or situation. Outside of occasional run-and-gun breakfasts, I don't get fast food that often, and I'm a very vocal supporter of local restaurants that puts his money where his mouth is.

Of course Captain D's isn't the pinnacle of seafood. Sure, fried chicken at a meat-and-three place will almost always be better than Popeye's. Sometimes I want to grab something nearby, drive home, and eat some junk food in front of my TV, though. Liking a particular type of fast food isn't a rejection of local restaurants.

I didn't say it was a rejection, I just don't think we need MORE fast food around here, if anything we have too much already. and this is from a guy who makes a living based around "fast casual" restaurants.
