Mook Mook..... So they put a popeyes in near the lab and I took the plunge today.

Here's what I will say, and I am being completely honest about this, not trolling. I will never eat another fast food sandwich as long as that spicy chicken is on the menu.

So I have some good/bad news. There will be a Popeyes no less than 1 mile from my work soon.

Bad news is the line at lunch will be be 1.2 miles long.

There is truly no other worthy chicken sandwich competitor.

This reminds me I still need to have the Popeyes and Chik-afil spicy sandwhich showdown

Ya'll can keep having the Popeyes one and enjoy a inferior product

Unfortunately the service quality I've experienced at Popeyes is atrocious and might skew my opinion ever so slightly

Perhaps it's because the one by me is brand new, but the service was professional and very nice. 56/Kirk RD if anyone wants to challenge that statement.

Ours shares a parking lot with a Denny’s that a gun shot victim stumbled into and died in a few years back. The area is a little different :rofl:

I've eaten at that Denny's numerous times. The new Popeyes on 56/Kirk is less than 10min from there, it's worth the drive.

That was my local Denny’s back when I didn’t have a curfew anymore but couldn’t get into bars. That’s not a terrible drive, we drive that far for noodles and company.

They opened a Popeye's in Yorkville this fall. Opening day we waited 45 mins for a spicy chicken sammich. It was worth it. The wait is usually 5-10 mins these days. It's good stuff.

So eating one for lunch right now. A lot spicier that the first time I had it. But again dry and been sitting. Wifey got one as well and hers was dry as well. She said better than Chic Fila spicy but not worth the rage. The spice is on point though, got my nose running

This was the last time I had one, November 16th 2019 and I drive past Popeyes 2-3 times a day lol.
Still dont understand all the hoopla. In all fairness though, probably have ate Mc D's and BK only once or twice in the same amount of time.

This is definitely a better way to describe, its a great sandwich, but waiting in a line of 10+ cars (15minutes or more) for it is eh
