I agree, Col. Sanders is probably rolling in his grave. Got what I believe they called 'rotisserie' chicken at Kentucky Fried a couple years ago, that was some of the nastiest stuff I've ever deliberately put in my mouth. Their fried chicken has been rather greasy and not big on flavor. Lees or Popeyes if I can't make the drive to Princes.

Popeyes here in Nashville is usually pretty good, the spiciness seems to vary I suppose depending on who is in the kitchen. The best Popeyes I had was at one in Panama City FL. It's huge for a chicken joint with a big buffet. The chicken was excellent, and the gravy was great, even spicier than the chicken.

      My knee-jerk reaction would be "Definitely check out Popeyes. Great stuff"

      Than I realized that I haven't had Popeye's chicken in over ten years. At the time it was great stuff, the chicken was great and I loved the 'dirty' rice. But at the time, KFC was still pretty darn good too. I definitely preferred Popeyes for chain chicken.

      I wish I could try Popeyes now. KFC has gone into the toilet, hence my dilemma.

      I hope your Popeye's is still making things the way they used to, if so, you're in luck. If they've followed KFC, your gonna be disappointed.

      Maybe this would have been better in a KFC bashing thread?

      Anywho, hopefully Popeyes is still making great stuff. Don't ignore the Mom and Pops if you have them around, however.

      Good luck,

      Dave

        congratulations Barney . POpeye's is very good chicken and you will enjoy it much. Go in and get a sample like a 2 piece meal and try it out for starters.

          This thread sort of led me back, after a long absence, and, admittedly, my experience in Maryland was much different than that in North Philadelphia.
          That said, when I went today, I was thinking more about the sides than the chicken.

            Nice thing about Popeyes is they do not charge extra for white meat, at least our local one does not.

              I love Popeye's chicken - since KFC has gotten so bad, Popeye's is the only fast food I'll buy fried chicken from. However, the service provided at many franchises is absolutely appalling. Rude, slow and inaccurate is the order of the day at many Popeye's locations, so buyer beware.

                You are in for a treat.

                Order one breast, one wing, both cajun of course, with a side of rice&beans, and TWO biscuits. and a bigass thing of tea. save the extra biscuit for afterwards, spreading grape jelly on it as your dessert.
