I went by my local Popeye's at lunch today. I swore I'd never darken their doors again due to their piss poor service but you guys have been raving about this sandwich so I thought I'd give it a try. They were out of the chicken sandwich along with french fries, sprite and couple of other items I fail to recall as I was spinning on my heels and heading right back out the door empty handed. I should have known better than to open their front door again. Shame on me.

We had some tonight, like 10 min wait but the sandwiches we bought were the last ones in the store. I think it lives up to the hype but I wouldn’t have been happy to have waited hours for it.

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.

I stopped by my regular place yesterday around 12:45 and there was a line out the door. I went to the cheesesteak place instead. I’ll try today around 11.

I took a PTO day to run errands today and there was no line when I passed by my local Popeyes at 11:00am. Very good sandwich, great value.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

I'll confirm the positive comments above. Finally got to taste it (the spicy version). Basically a crlispy chicken breast on a brioche type bun with some hot? sauce smeared onto the bun. What's not to like? Good quality; good portion; good taste. Price is a bargain. Not that experienced with Chick Fil A....but....have liked Chick Fil A a lot less when I've tried it.

Oh, and two weeks ago, i finally got to try In and Out burgers....IMO, better than most "fast food" burgers. (Had the fries extra cooked...and they were too crispy to taste any potato). I'd take 5 guys over In and Out every time...though. Is 5 guys "fast food"? I guess....but a different quality (and price level) from In and Out. The meat at both places was serviceable and pleasing. 5 Guys' fries can't be beat, though, IMO.

FWIW

Not me :-(

I showed up at 10:55 and there were about 20 people lined up outside (and more inside as they opened at 10:45). I went and had Taiwanese beef noodle soup instead. I’m just going to wait until the short-timers get over this.

Who'd thunk Popeye's chicken sandwiches would be such a craze! The end of civilization is surely at hand. [scratch.gif]

There was a murder in Baltimore this week over cutting in line for a Popeye's chicken sandwich.

Of course. Its obvious that anyone would kill for a Popeye's chicken sandwich or someone getting in the way of having one. Chick-fil-A has to be wondering if God does not love them anymore.

I understand the excitement.

Another generic, industrial-strength overcooked piece of chicken.

Finally tried it and came away really unimpressed. Under seasoned, forgettable, bolt on sauce. Not worth the hype and not as good as Chick-fil-A

Though it is “to die for”.

I’m torn between getting stabbed in line or getting my car smashed in the drivethru. I may never try this sandwich.

Just had the Popeyes chicken sandwich. It beats the national foodie hype.
My wife waited in a long line for fifteen minutes. As a prank, I was about to pretend being a stranger who cut in front of her, as she neared the order staff. However, all the anxious people behind her might have missed the joke, leading to another sandwich-stabbing mortality. Food to die for, but not that way. Indeed, given the violence reported at some Popeyes locations, we deliberately ate mobster style......backs facing the wall, ready to flip and duck under the table, or to scramble like lightning.

I got sucked into this thread's hype...

Sandwich was a fine piece of fast-food engineering but not otherwise remarkable.
