Re: Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

Drove back to Nashville from Birmingham today and saw a sign for Popeyes...figured I would stop. No line and ordered the sandwich...out in under two minutes.

For $4, it is a great sandwich...chicken was moist, generous piece. and good flavor...I could go for more spice. Much prefer over ChikFilA.

Very disappointed that Shafer has risen to this price point. Obviously they think the market can bear, though they make a ton of it!
