    The thinking it takes to call a private business socialist and to decide Popeyes must be Democratic is the work of a truly broken mind.

    I don't live in a big town. I'm guessing people here haven't even heard about the sandwich.

    I laughed at my wife when she even mentioned calling Popeye's. Of course it was disconnected.

    Day 2. Same signs posted. This location has closed the lobby. No idea if this was due to sandwich-less rage induced customers or what. Heard the guy in front of me ask when they'd get more in and all they said was they weren't getting any in today.

    Tomorrow's another day.

    It really depends on how close your Pop’s is to CFA. Close in proximity, then it is busy. Pop’s in an area that causes people to say “where is the closest Pop’s?” then it is probably not too busy.

    Struck out again. Line was wrapped around building into street. Fuck that, but at least it means my local Popeyes finally got it

    I don't think I'm making anymore special trips. Failed 3 times now. I'll give it a shot next time I'm near a popeyes with a reasonable looking line.

    I just don't think the upside is there. I'm 25 minutes away from my closest popeyes. Pass a CFA and Wendy's on my way home from work and there's a local spot across from my house. At some point, convenience matters.

    CFA also gave me the wrong sauces on my last trip just a few days before the madness hit, they must have sensed the impending storm coming

    Coworker hasn’t tried the Popeyes sandwich yet so we tried to go get one, they were sold out. Went to CFA and got a spicy chicken combo quickly with no problems and they gave me an extra drink for free.

    Had a friend do this last Friday. He was like "Man nobody ever goes to the Popeyes by my office. I'm gonna go snag a few during lunch." He spent 45 minutes during lunch standing in line and then took his L. He was not happy.

    Don’t bother cleaning up dead cockroaches when the HI is coming. I can only imagine how the sandwiches are being handled.

    Just had my first "out of sandwiches" experience. I actually wasn't even heading to Popeyes but totally forgot their was one nearby and figure fuck it for a quick dinner. Thought I had stumbled upon the holy grail with no line. Hit me with the sign on the door before I even got to the drive through .

    What’s the point in doing a blind test when it is obvious which sandwich is which immediately when you bite into it.

    Drove by the local Popeyes last night. Still not on the menu. So, took the fam over to CFA where they gave us an extra chicken sandwich and extra waffle fries with our order. It was a very delightful experience. Almost like it was their pleasure!

    Anyways, I guess I should take that to the CFA thread...
