1. Popeye's is heart-stoppingly awesome.

Love Popeye's. It's been our go-to since I learned of Bigot Fillet.

3. And it is, hands down, the best fried chicken in the world.

After trying it in a few places outside of New Orleans, I found it was never quite as good....

until I tried it again in Los Angeles. Perfect!

The sides are never as good, but the chicken is.

And now I have one more reason to buy it whenever I can!!

4. I usually don't choose my food by political persuasion...

Popeye's is pretty good. I'm sure the chickens didn't have a vote.

5. The only way to beat Popeye's is

to have been taught how to make your own fried chicken by a southern mom or grandma.

6. I crave their biscuits with red beans and rice!

Love the chicken and fish too. Problem is we only have one Popeye's in our town.

13. Oh, yeah!

I don't eat poultry (piscatarian...), but even though I do a pretty decent red beans and rice myself, I sometimes drive the five miles or so over to the nearest Popeye's for theirs, along with some biscuits. Nom, nom, nom...

fat trimmed, lightly breaded and saute'd in olive oil

14. You realize, don't you, that it's a Catholic Church recruiting organization?

Not "Popeyes" . . .

The hidden meaning - "Pope Yes"!

15. I prefer Popeye's Chicken anyway

Popeye's Chicken is simply better than Chick-fil-a.

17. Popeye's is the absolute bomb. Thank GOD I can't get it here!

So it's a vacation treat. YUM.

I have never figured out the Chick-fil-A appeal.

18. Just don't eat it for breakfast

 

Obama in 2008:

I know some of y'all got that cold Popeye's out for breakfast. I know. That's why y'all laughing. You can't do that. Children have to have proper nutrition. That affects also how they study, how they learn in school


http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2008/03/22/the-obama-dividend.html

Popeye's is pretty good and certainly better that Lee's, KFC, or Chick-Fil-A.

I love Popeye's chicken. Church's comes close, but not near enough.

20. Sadly, Popeye's isn't near me. I had it on a trip one time and it was great.

So much better than KFC or Chick-filla. Also their Cajun fries are really good.

21. I'm thankful to have a non-chain Peruvian chicken restaurant down the road.

1/4 white meat, yucca fries, and black beans for about $6... tasty and fresh. It's past at least 3 other chicken joints (including Chick-what's-it's-name), but worth the extra couple of miles.
