A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

I've come to love Popeye's since I first ate it back in the late 90's. There's just something about their blend of Cajun spices that go in their chicken that brings out such a flavor that no other place can offer. The New Orleans Spicy chicken is the best, whether it be regular pieces or the chicken strips, and I quite like their crawfish when they sell it (between October-December).

I think I'm going to cry. -_-,,,, My favorite things are the biscuits and red beans and rice. When I lived in Texas, there was a Popeye's almost within walking distance, but when I moved to Indiana the nearest one was like 45 minutes away, and it got closed down, so now the only one I know of is near the Ohio border some 2 hours+ away. :(

They make good stuff. They don't have Popeye's in my hometown, and when I moved to Chicago I considered then a ripoff of KFC until I tried them. One bite and it was like, where has this stuff been all my life?

Their chicken rocks----love it along with the spicy gravy on the mashed potatoes. I haven't tried their crawfish yet.

Do try the crawfish, especially since they only sell it during the autumn months of the year.

Popeyes has some of the best fast fried chicken around, and their Louisiana recipes are pretty decent too.

I'm a morbid cynic who thinks very, very differently from most other people. Chances are, if the majority says X is the greatest in its category, I'll disagree with that notion, because I tend … more

According to a company press release dated June 29, 2007, Popeyes is the second-largest "quick-service chicken restaurant group, measured by number of units", with more than 1,800 restaurants in more than 40 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 20 countries worldwide including Turkey, China, Hong Kong, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Singapore, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, Trinidad and Panama. About thirty locations are company-owned, the rest franchised.

Popeyes Mighty Good Fried Chicken first opened in Arabi, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, in 1972 as "Popeye Family Fried Chicken", owned by Al Copeland. As the company's official history states, they sold "traditional mild fried chicken [but] business was slow, and the chicken team realized they'd have to sell a spicier alternative to their standard chicken recipe if they wanted to impress flavor-seeking New Orleanians.
