Is this thing the Muhammad Ali of chicken sandwiches? Thats what I've heard so far. Chick-Fil-A and Wendy's had to chime in.

If so, I fully expect if I try to get one of these things on my cheat day, they'll b nice and out of em.

I tried one for lunch today. Figured there was no way it could live up to all the hype around it. I was wrong. I got the spicy one. It was really good.
eating mine now....its the bun and pickles.

not to mention the chicken is twice the size of CFAs.

I agree. Hype is real.

And you have choice of mash tater, red beans, dirty rice or green beans instead of waffle fries.

I think this is one of the greatest product launches in US consumer history. Popeyes Corp has to be thrilled. The damn thing has gone viral.

Man, that sandwich is off the hook!! It is so good. Don't get me wrong, not saying Chick-fil-a is bad, but I would take that popeyes sandwich over then every day of the week and twice on Sunday's.(mainly because, well you know why. lol

man, all Raising Cane's has to do is add a couple of pickles to their sandwich and...

The problem with Cane's sandwich is that the sauce drips all over your hands while eating it. I usually eat lunch at my desk while surfing SR so that makes it difficult.

Popeyes has a better bun than both Cane's and CFA. I wouldn't base my choice on bun alone, but Popeyes' bun is MUCH better.

So I asked my daughter to pick up a couple from the Popeye's here in Vienna, Virginia. I've been there several times and I've never seen it more than moderately busy. She said the restaurant was completely full and there was a long line out the door. She said, "forget this, pick something else."

So I'm sol today. I'll have to go myself tomorrow. But, I didn't expect people would be going bonkers over a sandwich here. Never seen anything quite like this.

I drive by popeyes daily when runnign for lunch. Never that busy.

I went today, the drive thru was 16 cars deep. I went inside. 8 ppl in front of me. All but one ordered the chicken sandwich. They had a row of premade sandwiches ( classic and spicy ) and were handing them out as fast as they could.

And i honestly believe that if the sammich wasnt that good, it wouldnt be like this. But its a massive breast of chicken, with a spicy mayo combo and clausen pickles. And the bun reminded me of Hawaiian bread. Had a sweet taste to it that complimented the pickled and spicy mayo.

Suckers, indeed.

Really glad i tried the sandwich a couple weeks back, i’ll wait til the herd mentality dies down and the crowds dissipate a little before having another.

I wonder how long that will last because Popeyes might have the better sandwich but we all know Popeyes ain’t no Chick Fil A when it comes to moving volume through the drive in.

Popeyes customer service might as well be Popcopy.

Popeyes just opened a restaurant in Greeley, CO. I had my first spicy chicken sandwich today. My opinion was that the spicy was missing from the spicy chicken sandwich. I had to order a second one to verify the results... Not spicy. It could be that it was made in Colorado.

Is this sandwich only avaiable for a limited time? I mean, Popeyes' service was already pretty slow. I don't get people waiting in these long lines for something that will still be on the menu in a few weeks when America will have moved on to the next new fad.

They don't really have a spicy like the regular chicken. They spicy one just comes with a chipolte mayo instead of regular.
