Default Popeye's Chicken Sandwich

I've been trying to get one of these for the past week, but our local Popeye's has been an hour wait and ran out of the sandwich for the past couple of days. Today I finally got to see what everyone has been talking about...and it was glorious.

Good lord really? An hour wait and sold out? It ain't that much better than Chickfila, no way.

I want to try it too but that's ridiculous. Guess I'll wait a few months.

I stopped by the Popeyes in greenville last week to pick up some chicken and sides, its usually quick in and out, but there was a line through and a line inside, what usually takes 5 minutes took 30! Didn't find out that everyone is going crazy about the sandwich until the next day at work.

I'm not hating on Chic-fil-a, I love that place, but in my opinion it's not even in the same ballpark...still prefer Chic-fil-a customer service.

I ran and got one 2 weeks ago when they first hit twitter.

They've been out for months but the recent social media campaign giving them free marketing is crazy.

They're good.

How did all of this come about? Luckily for me a buddy at work recommended it a couple of months ago. I will say, as a huge Chick-fil-a fan, I'll have to agree with you, they are not even in the same ball park. Popeyes spicy chicken sandwich is possibly the best chicken sandwich I've ever eaten...its that good.

We've tried to go everyday this week, and they've been out before 11:00 every day. We are smart enough to call, and today they just let it go to voicemail everytime and their mailbox is full. It must be good, but it can not be that good. I am excited to see the chicken sandwich war that will likely ensue after this. Everbody is about to join the fight, and I love chicken sandwich!

I am going to be in a different crowd than some of you. I absolutely love Popeyes so I went and tried the popeyes version a couple months ago. I won't ever buy another one of them. The chick-filet version is waay better in my book. Those of you that like the popeyes, are you comparing the spicy chicken to the spicy chicken versions? The regular chick-filet sucks but the spicy chicken with pepperjack cheese kicks azz.

Im a die hard in the trenches Chic-Fil-et man. I eat there 5-6 days a week. They have recently started to serve Mac & Cheese as a side. I honestly didn’t think they could get any better and then they pull this out of the bag! If they ever start selling good queso & chips, I’ll have no reason to eat anywhere else....ever.
We recently had a Popeyes open in my town earlier this spring. It was an absolute train wreck and still is. They constantly ran out of food. Couldn’t get their POS systems to work so they would close down randomly during the day. Some days there would be a sign on the door that said “Closed....we didnt have enough people show up to work today”. This is no lie! Has happened multiple times. I’ve ate there twice since they opened and it was sub-par even for fast food.

The line at CFE can be wrapped around the building and you’ll still have your food and on your way in 7 minutes or less......and they do it with courtesy and a smile.
