    Never been a fan of the "deluxe" chicken sandwiches.

    Chicken, bread, sauce, and pickles, thanks.

    I was thinking fried. Yeah a grilled chicken sandwich can be improved by bacon :lick:

    Yup. We hiked last weekend and talked about how excited we were to go there afterward only to find out it was temporarily closed. Huge bummer.

    Their food hall in S&W serves the sandwich and they’re definitely open. It wasn’t quite as good as the OG to me tho

    Yeah and I was expecting something comparable to that since they’re both owned by RBI, but it was awful. Way tougher and less crispy.

    That was not my experience with the BK filet at all. It was the same as Popeye’s when I had it.

    Because they're too cheap to make two types of chicken freeze it and ship it to their restaurants.

    They offer their current tenders in spicy so I'd imagine that's available.

    Better make the mayo on the spicy sandwich available as a dipping sauce too

    There's a place in Birmingham now located at Good People Brewing that makes basic this on an obviously elevated level. They've been pumping out this chicken before the Popeyes sandwich tho.

    You must be new here. We've been asking for a spicy sandwich made with their spicy breading PLUS the spicy mayo.

    one day.........one day....




    also, I'm totally down for some spicy nugs from Popeyes.

    He's actually the leader of the "why no spicy chicken" whining crew. He's a cfa homer that got his feelings hurt that Popeyes made a far super sandwich so he whined about how they did it.

    I think that the lighter breading and generally well prepared nature of the CFA has merit in regard to the claim of being best. I’d rather have a classic or spicy CFA than a classic Popeyes.

    At some point I’m going to get a side of Popeyes spicy Mayo and apply to a classic CFA and test that experience.
