When to get a sandwich today, but the line was too long. Not trying to die up in there over some chicken.  :no:

I had to see for myself why all the fuss about this Popeye's chicken sandwich. I went to a Popeyes in the 'hood. There wee White people inside and outside in the drive thru line. I don't recall ever having seeing a White person at that particular Popeyes. I ordered two sandwiches, one mild and one spicy. I cut each sandwich in half so, my wife and I could sample both the spicy and mild. The chicken sandwiches were good. However, they weren't all that!!!  :shrug:

I had one of them sammiches when they first came out in early Sept. It was aight. But to be honest, Chick FilA has a better overall taste. Popeyes is tryna blow your mouf out with that extra spicy ish.. It definitely ain't worth all of this madness. ::)

For me it is not so much the hype. it is the fact that people are saying they are as good as Chick-fil-a. I love  chick but refuse to go there because of their politics.  If Popeye has a good alternative, I will go there.  Otherwise, I'm not a fan of chicken sandwiches at other places. I hate Zaxby's, if you have those in your area.

That's what I figured. I mean it is chicken. What could Popeye's possible do to a piece of chicken, that has not been done already? JEES LOUISE!!!!!  :shrug:

Chick-Fil-A does not have locations in black areas in my town, Popeye does. If their sandwhich can rival their's at a lower price, people will line up for it. Chick-Fil-A is not priced for the hood.

If Churches Chicken could duplicate KFC, and keep Churches prices, folk would line up for that as well. People only eat at Churches because it is cheaper. No one says they prefer Churches over KFC.

There's a Chick-fil-A and a Popeyes in a Black part of Richmond.  They are a block apart.  Chick-fil-A is always packed.  Your hypothesis has no merit.

Wendy’s spicy chicken sammish is very good, but some how when I want a chicken sammish I end up at Chic fil a.

As to the politics Capler refers too, isn’t Cathy dead?

Popeye’s is well out of the way for me, I’ll have to wait awhile before heading over that way, and the pizza taste might hit me and I will keep going past Popeye’s straight to the pizzeria.

Well...you should qualify your statement because it sure sounds like a broad brush statement you were making.

OK, I finally tried one today here are my thoughts.  There was a long line at the drive thru but it moved very quickly. The sandwich is priced well at $3.99. That makes it a better deal than  chick-fil-a.   I got the classic, and it is a robust sandwich, larger than the one at chick-. The meat is larger, and so was the bun. The breading on chicken is not as flavorful, but it has a crunchy texture that chick- lacks. The bun was nicely buttered and toasted. It is served only with a pickle which is how chick_ serves theirs.

With that said,  the sandwich was very good, and I would buy it again. I can't say one is better than the other, it will depend on your personal taste. Aside from the pickle, they are not similar, but are able to stand on their own merits. Some folk will like this one better while others will prefer Chick-Fil-A.  They both are good and beats the competition.
