Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

#1 Post by c fu »

If you've eaten it, what are your thoughts?

Mine: Really tender/moist chicken - buttermilk batter is crispy but not heavy - brioche bun is surprisingly airy for a fast food joint. Pickles and sauce need more oomph. Feel the sandwich is lacking a touch of flavor, but texture wise it's really good. Brought one home for my wife and she thought it was a $6-7 chicken sandwich and was pretty shocked when I told her $3.99.

Haven’t had it yet. How does it compare to Chick-fil-A?

I stopped by Popeyes last week to buy a bucket of chicken and two people in front of me on line asked for the sandwich and were told it was sold out. I was wondering what was going on.

had a bite - was really excellent. seems the only issue to ensure they don't skimp on the pickles. it's quite an achievement imo.

While I do like Popeye's (my wife and I are guilty of having Popeyes and Champagne here and there), I don't really get ordering a fried chicken sandwich when there is just plain ol' fried chicken available (as opposed to somewhere like Sun of a Gun when you're not in the mood for seafood). I'd rather have less bred and more chicken + breading.

Hard to eat fried chicken while riding in the car, for one. Gets fingers greasy, which isn’t alway a good thing, depending on your situation. That all said, would be really cool if Chick-fil-A tried fried chicken.

More than Charlie's glowing review, this makes me think it's probably delicious.

I don't eat in my car for some reason, but this is a good point.

No comment on the Sarah association with Chick-fil-A, which no self respecting Sarah would ever frequent, much less cook for....

As for the Popeye's version, I've never had one, but I have a dear friend who owns something like 10 Popeye's locations in LA and Las Vegas. So please, by all means, keep eating them! :)

I was driving though northern suburban Detroit this afternoon (Telegraph north of 12 Mile) and there was a backup of cars (and a traffic jam) waiting to get into Popeyes. Weird

It also can have huge variations in quality from location to location. At this point I know the good ones in Jersey City.

Popeye's doesn't get the respect it deserves from a large portion of the population. Is it the best fried chicken I've had? No, but it's respectable and good for the money and convenience, especially if you go when they are busy or ask them what isn't currently ready, and then order that.

Re: Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

#29 Post by ERPark »

So I went on a bit of an odyssey thru southeastern Atlanta this past Wednesday afternoon, in my quest to have the Popeyes chicken sando before my flight out of Hartsfield Jackson. The first Popeyes I tried was on Tara Blvd in Jonesboro. They were out of both of the chicken sandos, as well as the jambalaya and red beans & rice (rb&r). So ventured next to the location on Georgia 85 in Riverdale. Long and slow moving line, but luckily I had time.

Finally got to the counter, and placed an order for a sandwich combo with rb&r, along with a solo spicy chicken sandwich. After waiting close to 10 mins for it, I was presented with a large paper bag containing two foil/paper bags and a small styrofoam container. Sat down and went to town.....

Upon first view, dare I say these are elegant looking sandwiches. The bun is shiny, and the chicken breast is noticeably thick (both with breading and the actual meat). First bites of both confirm the meat is 100% unprocessed, juicy, but no notable flavor from any sort of brine. The breading was crisp, and was maybe a notch below the flavor you’d get from their beloved “regular” fried chicken.

On the flavor note, one aspect where both sandos came up short was the qty of sauce (apparently mayo on the regular, and mayo with cayenne on the spicy version) provided. There are some pickle slices as the only other accompaniment, and these too were begging for several X more in qty needed.

The above paragraph is not to say that this was an unpleasant experience. Extra sauce and pickles would make this a unanimous entrant into the fast food Hall if Fame. As it stands, these sandos rate a 9.5 out of 10 from an overall perspective, and 10 out of 10 based on QPR alone.

I ate less than half of each, and wrapped up the remainder to consume on my flight. Somewhere over the Midwest, I enjoyed them again. Even at a cool temperature, the breading still retained a good amount of crispiness, and the chicken breast was still moist. Again, the need for more sauce and pickles was apparent. But these still were far better than any option available to purchase, or receive in First Class domestic.

If self serve sauces were an option available a la Chik Fil A, this would be an absolutely perfect meal. But as it stands, if the situation were “we ate at In N Out a few days ago, what should we get this time?”, the Popeyes chicken sandwich would be the easy choice.

I don't have a Popeye's near me, but echo B. Tuite about the calories. Unless I'm training 3x per week minimum i'm not going there. But, like Chik Fil A I'd buy one and take a bite to see what the hype is about, and then throw the rest away. Chick Fil A didn't deliver, I don't understand the hype. I'll try to do Popeye's chx sammy next time I see one of their restaurants.

bunch of places around town are trying to "upscale" fried chicken like everyone did for burgers. It's the small deal - it's a great food with a high floor and low ceiling. Waited two hours for one of them (no reso allowed) - was it 2 hours better than Popeye's? Hell no.

I will likely go to Popeyes sometime this week for a sandwich. But if you're in Seattle and need a good fried chicken sandwich, try Sodo Chicken located at the corner of 4th Ave S and Michigan in Sodo next to Katsu Burger. I had it today (all the talk of chicken caused a craving), and while the bun is no great shakes (looks like a Franz sesame bum) the chicken is moist, flavorful, with crispy breading and it's bigger than the bun. Served with mayo and pickles. Pricier than Popeyes at around $8, but very tasty.

My in laws are picking up my daughter from school tomorrow so my wife and I are going to have a dinner date.

She texted me and asked if we could get Popeyes and eat the sandwich there instead of doing take out due to the kid. I might even splurge and let her get fries

Since you are suggesting alternatives... Skillet Fried Chicken Sammy. (yes, that is the name)

I would do red beans and rice and corn. Cole slaw avg. Good biscuits though. Just saying.

The tots are mediocre.
The biscuits and the red beans and rice are terrific.
In the words of Chris Rock, "Popeyes is TOO good."

Red beans and rice, biscuits & mashed potatoes w/gravy from Popeyes = yum. I do still give KFC the edge for coleslaw tho.

But is it better than the spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy’s or Chik fil A? Popeyes has a spicy option too, right? Faturday coming early!
