    There’s a reason Popeyes and CFA are wrapped around the building and KFC isn’t.

    Was convinced to get the KFC spicy sandwich today. Sauce is basically identical to Popeyes, as was the crunch. Popeyes breast is a bit larger and juicier, so it’s still king. This is a very good alternative, and will likely always be warm, correct, and take less time.

    Fortunately the two Popeyes in San Diego are never packed and have good service.

    On the other hand, chick fil a service isn’t as good here as it is in the south. Never get a my pleasure.

    Well I also ordered a sandwich combo for my wife (correct in a separate bag) and a tacklebox (correct) so it wasn't quite that bad.

    I realized it pretty soon after leaving the drive thru so it was easy enough to remedy.

    I'm actually a fan of the McDonald's spicy chicken sandwich. I didn't care for it the first time I tried it but I decided to go back and give it another shot and really enjoyed it. I've had it about 3 or 4 times since then. Popeye's is still the best though.

    That sandwich is such an abomination that I now have to question every culinary take you have going forward.

    that's an interesting and potentially acceptable substitute. the real issue is that they should be doing banana peppers on a Nashville hot fish sandwich instead. Bolton's in Nashville does hot fish and that shit is delicious.

    I think I’ve gone to red lobster once in my life and I was about 10 years old at the time.

    Ruby Tuesday’s (salad bar), Olive Garden, and chili’s were my family’s trashy restaurant chains of choice.

    I consider carrabbas, bonefish grill, and longhorn a step up from those.

    Red lobster is fine. When I was younger I'd love quantity over quality restaurants and would kill endless shrimp. Haven't been there in years but I wouldn't be pissed if I found myself there.

    I don't eat at a lot of sit down chain restaurants because I have some really good local options. But the only place I really try hard to avoid is Chilli's. Hate that place.

    I think it might be the worst restaurant. I'm not married to that opinion, I'm sure I'm missing something out there just as bad or worse.
