    Checkers spicy is my very favorite. I'm a big cheese on chicken guy though and they do that there.

    yeah there probably is some special non agitating gluten used in popeyes buns that every other fast food place you cry about doesn’t use

    It'sAlwaysSunnyInAthens the Whata Hatch Green Chile Spicy Chicken is pretty elite, too. Even the breakfast burger is good.

    For some reason, all of the Whataburgers around here don't have sauteed onions and peppers anymore, so I can't order my Monterey Melt clone.

    pretty good, but not as good as popeyes. Bun was on point. Worth getting,

    I haven't had the BK or KFC, so I can't really compare.

    My wife really likes Zaxby's, so I've had their sandwich several times now. Just like everything they do, it's incredibly inconsistent. I've had a couple that I thought were fantastic and a couple I struggled to finish because they were so shitty.

    Had the Popeye's spicy again last week. It was still fucking killer.

    It’s fine. Good quality chicken but not outstanding flavor or anything. Better than a lot of fast food but I never crave it

    Eat it immediately, use the shit out of the delicious sauce, and order your meal “no coleslaw, extra toast (or extra sauce)”

    Go close to when they open. Chicken, sauce and toast are all very good but fries are often soggy/cold.

    I actually put the BK spicy sandwich #1 overall, but the product variability is even worse than Popeye’s. I’ve gotten sandwiches that made it tingle in my underpants region but also $1 menu McChicken level soggy garbage.

    I would like to state that I was wrong on this debate originally

    I now have a Popeyes much closer to me than CFA an Popeyes is without a doubt better in general if you can deal with shit customer service

    Haven't been eating much fast food lately but have a couple notes from the past couple weeks..

    Checkers has changed their spicy chicken sandwich patty. New one is not as good and they no longer have it as part of any promotion. Disappointing. dblplay1212

    Popeyes no longer has any non carb side option. This is kind of disappointing. Obviously it's not healthy but a couple pieces of chicken and green beans was at least low calorie. Had the popcorn shrimp though and they were really good.

    Finally, had a spicy chicken from cfa in a bowl with bacon cheese and a pack or mayo. Really hit the spot. I love all the new apps that allow for making weird custom orders fairly straight forward.

    You complain about a no carbs option at Popeyes but yet get Bacon, Cheese, AND Mayo with your chicken at CFA?

    That's everything at BK, you get fresh crispy onion rings or something equivalent to used condom rings rolled in cat litter

    Weird. Might be a Georgia thing. Definitely different chicken here.

    Also lol at how defensive you get. I didn't say either place sucked. My love for both is well documented here. But I don't believe any fast food restaurant to be above reproach.

    Don't care. Just limiting carbs and watching calories. It works for me, to each their own.

    Not defensive at all. It's just hilarious that you consistently come here to suck cfa dick when you already do that in the cfa thread. You love cfa, we get it. This is the non-cfa fast food thread. Stay in your thread, please.

    My last post in the cfa thread was months ago and literally says fuck cfa.. Oddly enough no one felt the need to tearfully defend it's honor.

    Anyway... My buddy has the double cheeseburger with nuggets from McDonald's last night. Said it was awesome.
