A Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Review
By: A food blogger and his girlfriend
We’re not convinced. I definitely think the whole “better than Chick-fil-A” was started by Popeyes marketing rather than a person. 🤷🏼♀️ We’ve seen a lot of people say Popeyes is better, but we just don’t understand! Brent and I went to two Popeyes locations in the pouring Florida rain because we were genuinely curious. It took us 2.5 hours in total, but was about a 20 minute wait after we ordered. We do realize the hype caused most of the delay, but it still could have been a little better. While the Popeyes sandwich is bigger and definitely has more crunch, it’s lacking flavor. CFA has more seasoning in their breading and the buttered bun is softer and pairs so much better with the sandwich itself. I got the classic and Brent got the spicy sandwich. Both of our sandwiches definitely had the same piece of chicken. We don’t think it was a mistake because we’ve heard other people mention this too. In Brent’s words, “Calling that a spicy chicken sandwich is a disgrace to all spicy chicken sandwiches.” It’s a freaking behemoth piece of chicken that I could barely take a normal bite out of. We liked them, but we were far from loving them like the Lord loved the church. 🙌🏼 You honestly can’t beat the CFA experience, a land flowing with milk and honey mustard. While Mr. Krabs thinks nobody goes to a restaurant for atmosphere, he’s 46,853% wrong. CFA generally has friendlier staff, the best lemonade, it’s much faster, and each item is blessed by God himself before it even gets inside your hungry tummy. CFA has opened the floodgates of heaven to let it rain. CFA leaves the 99 and feeds the 5,000. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE Popeyes and will always go back for their tenders, biscuits, good ole green beans, and mashed taters, but CFA has parted the Red Sea and is leading us to the promised land... of chicken.
So our conclusion is this: Popeyes, we’ll see your chicken sandwich again when we crave Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday. 🐓 #christianchicken
