So, I just got back from Popeyes. I ate the spicy, and the regular. I know, wtf. Now I feel like complete death.
But I will say that the hype is real. For a fast food chicken sandwich it’s good. It’s really good, better than Chic-fil-A. But it is still undoubtedly fast food, and I don’t plan on going back for a long time.
I’ve had chicken sandwiches from most of the major fast food chains and hands down the popeyes one is the best.
I still prefer a burger from Shakeshack or Five Guys over any of it though.
I’ve tried Chick-Fil-A twice in my life (there’s none near where I live). I personally think it sucked. Never had a chicken sandwich from a fast food place that was good at all, but I do intend on trying Popeyes at some point just cause. Hopefully I agree.
The chicken tastes like chicken. I like it because of the atmosphere and employees. They crush it with little kids. They’re over the top nice. I’ve never finished my drink before being asked if I need a refill. They give first responders and military a discount. And they’re Christian owned and don’t care what the world thinks about that.
The other chicken places (Popeyes and Church’s) scare me. They’re located in our darker neighborhoods and I’m pretty sure the employees don’t like me and my co-workers.
yeah you can’t beat the atmosphere of a chic-fil-a.
I don’t eat there often but when I have it has always been pleasant. one time I had to wait inline for 25min in the drive through and when I got to the window the employee could see I was visibly annoyed (was on the way to catch a movie).
she politely turned to me, sad sorry for the wait and said the meal was on ‘us’. so I didn’t even have to fucking pay… that is service!
The one I frequent has extra people in the drive thru and I’ve even seen them in the line inside when it’s super busy. They even have umbrellas that hang over their head via a harness they wear so they can work in the rain. I think they recently installed heaters in the drive thru to help their employees survive the winter.
It definitely tastes like chicken, it just tastes like shitty chicken. I probably wouldn’t dislike the chain as a whole if it wasn’t hyped up to me beforehand. So, so disappointing every time I’ve been there. Service is usually fine though.
The waffle fries are wiggity wack too. Just terrible.
Properly cooked scrambled/fried/poached/soft or hard boiled eggs are so good, I just can’t ruin them that way. In NY, where the egg sandwich is king (seriously ain’t none of you motherfuckers know shit about a baconeggancheesesaltpeppaonakaiserrollbadabinghowyoudoin) there is no greater torture then arriving home to find some douche has put ketchup on your sandwich and no matter how much you wipe it off the roll your sandwich is ruined. RUINED I TELL YOU.
Now go put your commie sauce on your Soviet rations and keep it off my eggs, comrade.
