Popeyes vs KFC

No contest, love that Popeyes greasy chicken. Apparently I'm not the only one, KFC just shut down, Popeyes two blocks away is always busy.

    Damn, I wish we had a Popeye's near Topeka - all we have is KFC and Church's.

    I'm a popeyes fan myself. If I ever eat FF chicken I go to either Bojangles or Popeyes and I believe that I'm favoring Popeyes.

    Popeye's is not what it used to be. I once in a blue moon get fried chicken from there. Of note, when "they" went bad, I gave up most all FF fried chicken, period. Even Popeye's biscuits su_k, now. KFC; never for anything. Churches; never for chicken. Popeye's on occasion when I luck up upon a fresh batch of spicy being dumped from the fryer (very rare). Even then they changed their spice marinade so it is even worse than was in late '80s & earlier, etc. No real spiciness. Still loaded with MSG. I only get an occasional RB&R from Popeye's on most occasions. Hell, they even D/Ced their onion rings. They must be insane! The only thing I ever buy from Church's is their large Cajun Rice & a "pepper-pak" once every month or so. Pretty good, although LOADED with NaCl.

    Went in the Popeye's in New Orleans just looking to get a large soda. They asked me if a I wanted a "senior drink". I said, "What's that?" They said--same thing as regular but it costs a penny. So I said sure--and it was, indeed, $0.01. Never had their chicken though the reputation is good. But I'm still grateful for how they treat us "seniors".

    I do believe BT is referring to a corporate location. Those customers who are exposed to a franchised restaurant will perhaps have a different story to tell.

    I don't know--it was just off Canal St., possibly on Royal (or Chartres) but I could be wrong about that.

    And it isn't far from the King of All Krystals on Bourbon St.

    Kentucky Fried for me, original receipe and a large cole slaw just for myself. Probably because there wasn't a Popeye's or Church's anywhere in Fresno when I was growing up.

    I would tend to think that all Popeye's in NO are corporate.

    We have a Popeyes and KFC across the street from each other. I do both and have noticed that the lines for drive-thrus are about the same. I absolutely love Popeyes onion rings and sometimes I get a large order of rings only and have them for lunch. KFC is good for when relatives come to visit and we make a KFC run for something to eat. The kids love the mashed potatoes and gravy. The biscuits with honey are good too.

    I like Popeye's red beans and rice, and the shrimp Po' Boys. I've never had the chicken.

    I vote for Popeye's spicy chicken. It's not as spicy as it was back in the 70's in New Orleans (made your head sweat) but compared to the tasteless, KFC extra-crispy or the bland original recipe, I will go for Popeye's every time.

    I vote for Popeye's, too! KFC is too corporate IMHO.

    Last year while in Louisiana, the birthplace of the chain, I decided to have dinner at a Popeye's location. Oddly enough, the food at said Louisiana location, specifically Lafayette, tasted about the same as that served at the locations within the TA TravelCenters truckstop chain.

    Bojangles Chicken in the Carolinas sure beats both, but Popeyes just opened up a new location here in Waterford,MI before I move, and I went there the other night, and I love Popeyes chicken, its the closest you can get to bojangles if you live in the north, something we do not have to worry about in NC

    Popeye's chicken is vastly superior to the undercooked, sludgy dreck that KFC serves.

    Most Popeye's restaurants, even the ones in Lafayette, are franchisees. I have eaten at that Lafayette Popeye's many times, and though it may not be the finest franchise in Popeye's stable, the chicken was always hot and good. My only problem with it was that they served all Pepsi soda products.

    I tend to agree with WaffleHouseRules, and when evaluating these places, I can't help but take biscuit and iced tea quality into account, too. I'd rank fast-food fried chicken chains like so:

    1. Bojangles
    2. Popeyes
    3. Church's
    4. KFC

    Defineently Popeyes. I love the their crispy chicken and I don't receive my chicken half cooked like I do from KFC. Plus, they have the best "Fast Food" cheesecake I have tasted. Along with mashed potatoes and gravy and the french fries. Also, its closest to my house.

    I'll take Popeyes over KFC any day of the week! KFC is OK, but I have to be in the mood for it.

    to a displaced cajun

    POPEYES - for "gumbo" or "jambalya" or dirty rice or red beans/rice.
    It doesnt replace the real stuff but when these here yankees look at you funny for eating such things.

    KFC is the only local chix joint we have here, so for chix it has to be KFC

    Popeyes is 20 + miles from here either in OHIO or KanTuckEe

    Popeye's all the way. I used to only get the chicken with fries and slaw, but I've tried the mashed potatoes and red beans and rice ... worth driving six miles out of my way home to pick up.

    Bojangles opened in the old KFC place here in Daytona Beach. I went in and after seeing their prices left for Popeyes.

    I have yet to sample Church's or Bojangles, but I have had the displeasure of eating at Lees Famous Recipe, another popular chicken chain here in Kentucky. It ranks far below KFC. So my ranking is:
    1. Popeye's
    2. KFC
    3. Lee's Famous Recipe

    Is anyone else here a victim, I mean patron of Lee's?

    1 KFC
    2 Popeyes
    3 Churchs
    4 Bojangles
    5 Mcd
    6 Wendys
    7 Arbys
    8 subway
    9 chateau le blanc (white castle)



    get my point ANYTHING but Lee's

    As a native New Orleanian and former Popeye's employee, I have to say that Popeye's totally thrashes KFC in all categories, except for convenience (i.e., too far from my house!). I have to admit, though, Bojangles is a good substitute if no Popeye's is available.

    Please tell me no one ever gets the mild chicken...

    Rpc, my memory is not that great but do I remember Popeyes in N O selling a real good tamale? I wonder if the N O location is still the best. It sure used to be good. Maybe that was when you worked there Rpc?
