    I think it depends on your Popeye’s location.

    Chic-Fil-A is consistent at every one I’ve been to.

    I’ve been to Popeye’s that are probably not even operating legally.

    My closest Popeyes location is equivalent to a TV dinner and is probably featured on worldstar once a month in some capacity.

    Yea being from New Orleans I talked it up a lot historically - took some friends in the restaurant space to the Hollywood/Cahuenga one at some point.

    This was several years ago and I still get shit for it.

    They had so many chair throwing brawls that the franchise owner wanted to bolt the chairs to the floor but the LA health department wouldn’t sign off on it because they need to be able to move them to clean

    I swear to you it’s the truth. I said in the other thread that it’s probably the best fast food item I’ve ever had.

    The chicken is bigger, juicier, tastier than Chick Fil A and the bun is better too. Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich is the clear winner.

    I’ve had like 2 beer but I’m actually offended that people are trying to compare that unseasoned junk butt overpriced chicken from chik fil a to that Jesus Christ goodness that comes from Popeyes.

    I challenge anyone to order an 8 piece dark meal (all drums) with gravy as the side (to dunk the drums) with them sexy biscuits and partake.

    Y’all will argue the chik fil a sauces but y’all has bad tastebuds

    True, but at 450 calories, I can get a spicy CFA on the run and not destroy my day as long as I don’t get fries.

    If the Popeyes sandwich is like 700 calories, I don’t really think they’re comparable sandwiches.

    I love Popeyes when it’s good, but I’ve had really shitty food at Popeyes before. I’ve never had shitty food at a chick fil a.

    What I’m trying to say is, Popeyes is a higher ceiling prospect, could be an all American future first round pick, but has a chance that’s higher than you’d like to admit to be living under an overpass in a few years as well, but you should be willing to take the chance.

    That said, I’ll eat it anytime someone asks, and their blackened ranch is the shit.
