Love love love Popeye's. I have a personal rule, whenever someone mentions Peta, I have to have Popeye's for dinner.

Yep, but it was a smart decision to keep the right to the recipes, he didnt have to bother with the stores anymore, just make the batter so to speak.

Popeyes also tastes better in New Orleans because they usually a slightly different recipe because natives can handle spicier and more flavor.

I eat Popeye's whenever I have to put down one of my pets.  Dead pet == fried chicken and spicy rice.  I even eat the skin, because fark it.  I've got a cat pushing 20 years old, so I've got a meal in my near future.

Popeyes is very good indeed, but not the best fast-food chain fried chicken. That would be Roy Rogers, from whom Hardees licensed the recipe and sold the chicken in their stores towards the end of the previous century.

It's not spicy hot like Popeye's or Bojangles or Church's new recipe etc. It's just really, really juicy (even the breasts) and tasty.

Guess thats why their fries are the same as Checkers?

This. Roy Rogers is the best fried chicken (fast food).  There arent many left in my area, but when i know i am going to be near one (rest stop on I-87) , i stop in.

Man I miss having a Popeye's Chicken around. They had them at pretty much every Army and Air Force station I was at over the years, but now that that I'm living back in my home state all we get is crap like KFC.

/Spicy chicken strips with red beans and rice and a biscuit and then using both the chicken and the biscuit to scoop up the beans and rice was farking awesome!

We have Popeye's Chicken about a mile away from a KFC. The KFC always has a pretty long order line. Popeye's employees look surprised when someone comes in the door.

I love Roy Rogers but it's for the Roast Beef sandwiches. Whenever I go back to visit my parents I have to take a trip out to Leesburg for one that is still open.

For fried chicken- it's popeyes, churches, or bonjangles. or if we're including a place that just has sandwiches and no bones- chic fil a.

They borrowed the millions on a Tuesday with a promise to pay it back by next Friday.

The dirty rice always gives me horrible intestinal pain and diarrhea.  Every single time, from any Popeyes.

Probably an allergy.  Or they're using real dirt.

I always find it odd when I order from Popeyes and the cashier answers me in Spanish instead of Creole.

I knew he retained the biscuit recipes because it was the same biscuit at copelands

I have a friend in New Orleans whose dream job was to recruit future ex-wives for Al Copeland.  Nice work if you can get it !

Not just fast food. Hardees (using the Roy Rogers recipe) was the best fried chicken I've ever had, including from expensive sit-down restaurants and even my own mom, dad, and grandma, all of whom made delicious fried chicken that I really loved as a kid. And not by just a little bit, either. Hardees was far and away, by an order of magnitude at least, better than whatever would come in second place.

I've never actually been to a Roy Rogers. I only know of their chicken through Hardees who licensed the recipe. Have you tried their fried chicken? If not, do so when you get a chance. If so, and you think their Roast Beef sandwiches are even better, then I've got to find a real Roy Rogers some time and try one!

And it doesn't matter because there's no way I'm driving over to any town's MLK Boulevard to get me some Popeye's... WHY, Popeye's? WHY must you always put your restaurants smack in the middle of the worst part of town?

Put one in the suburbs. Let the white folks try your chicken, because it's farking awesome!

The one of two Popeye's that I go to, is in the town in my state that was the LAST to vote to have MLK Jr day off. The town that had David Duke come to march in solidarity with the mayor against MLK Jr day. So don't say it's Always in the worst part of town. Sometimes the town itself is the worst part of the state, and not for the reason you are insinuating.

Don't have any Checkers around here, but they do sell their fries in the freezer isles of some grocery stores. The Popeyes ones are quite a bit smaller than the frozen Checkers ones IIRC, so I'm not really sure if they're the same or not.

Just know they're both damn tasty.

wow. Where are you where the folks have poor taste?

So long as neither Popeyes or copelands changes biscuit recipes.
