Here to stay. They waited to bring them back to make sure they had enough distributors for the chx and the buns so that they wouldn't run out again. The bigger problem is that a lot of these workers at Popeyes are having to work without a break to keep up with the lines.

I went to a Popeyes Sunday and there weren't a ton of people there but there was a sign that said 40 minute to hour wait but I saw a shitload of chicken ready so I thought it would be quick if I ordered and when I got to the counter to order I saw there were a massive backlog of online orders keeping everyone busy and the wait was really like 40 minutes at 3pm so I got the eff out of there and went to Chipotle.

I had one yesterday. Waited in a short line that took thirty minutes. They were out of the spicy. It was good but like most things, absolutely not worth the hype. Tasted a lot like chick-fil-a but more breading and bigger.  :dunno:

If the two people ahead of him each ordered 8 that means they were stocked with a whopping 16 chicken sandwiches?  That's pretty weak.  mocat feel free to double check me here if necessary.

If Popeyes would have been in what was the Arby's when I was still in school....I would be 400lbs.  I would have eaten there every day.  Thank goodness the Doughboys Pepperoni Rolls had my attention ONLY twice a week during that time.

Omg I'm learning so much! I've had Shake Shack twice -- once at LAX when I was delirious from a Vegas bender, stuck on a layover and once in NYC when I was 21 and drunk enough that I don't remember it much.

I had popeyes at the ATL airport the other day! spicy chicken strips, biscuit, rice. I actually ordered cajun fries but they gave me cajun rice or whatever. I hadn't gotten a fork and took it pretty far away to eat it so I just had to throw the rice away. very sad and very unfair. chicken strips were 5 stars tho.

I don't know why MIR doesn't like biscuits, but I don't like their dry texture. I only like flaky style biscuits and mosts places make those crumbly dry turds. Doesn't matter for B&G and that's the only way I like crumbly biscuits.

guess i don't eat a lot of fried chicken, when i do it's chic-fil-a's spicy sammy. 

related i had CFA's spicy chicky breakfast biscuits once, and i hated them.  i'm a biscuit fan.

I had one yesterday. Waited in a short line that took thirty minutes. They were out of the spicy. It was good but like most things, absolutely not worth the hype. Tasted a lot like chick-fil-a but more breading and bigger.  :dunno:

No line today so finally tried this out. I agree with your description. Was good but I think i still like their spicy tenders more.

wrong thread but sit down for a real life recent pretty boring chick-fil-a story:

kids have swimming lessons. chick-fil-a is across the parking lot. we almost always grab it for dinner after swimming lessons because my kids love their nugs. THERE'S A TWIST! mid way through watching them swim around like dolphins mrs. dave mentions she needs to fill her car with gas on the way home. I'm a gentleman (and hate getting the kids dressed after swimming lessons) so I volunteer to switch her vehicles and fill hers with gas. she's deep into the chick-fil-a drivethrough when she realizes her purse is in her car which I'm driving. SHE'S TRAPPED IN THE LINE! has to go all the way through and fess up to having zero money. they give it to her for free because they are nice people and always do nice stuff. we get home and send them a check in the mail for it. 5 days later we get a letter from them. Inside: Our non-cashed check, hand written letter from the manager thanking us for our business, and 6(!!) gift cards for free chicken sandwiches.

WTF?

I'd like to hear your take on this.

What the eff are you asking me? What do you think my take is? Is your view of race so mumped up that you think I, or anyone else human, would attempt to justify a man in his 20's chasing a woman old enough to be his mother outside of the restaurant then body slamming her on concrete?

I'm gobsmacked. I'm legitimately interested in knowing your train of thought, that you would think I would have a different reaction to this than anyone else would? Bizarre. Seriously man, get your rough ridin' mind right, sheesh.

I asked because I had a tussle with a (white) poster on another board about this who weirdly tried to downplay this violence on the basis that it brought him satisfaction that historical power dynamics could not save this woman from the consequences of her actions. Pissed me off that a supposed progressive would justify in any degree violence against women in pursuit of wokeness. Glad we agree.

That isn't woke, it's stupidity. Also I hate people who use the word "wokeness." I also want to point out that this would be just as despicable if this were a 25 year old man getting slammed. I do think there are occasions when a justifiable ass kicking is appropriate, chasing someone out of a fast food restaurant to suplex them on the concrete just because they said n-word isn't one of those cases.

J Kenji Lopez-Alt has this to say about Popeye's biscuits:

Quote from: Kenji
My loneliness turned to jubilation when they returned with not one, not two, but an entire box of biscuits. Those gloriously salty, crispy, fatty Popeye's biscuits that I'd put in the running for best biscuits world-wide, homemade or no.

Was finally able to give this baby a spin today here in Manhattan. It was absolutely worth the hype, my favorite sandwich anywhere. Everything about it was better than anything on any other chicken sandwich I've ever had. The bun was soft and light. The breading on the chicken was very crunchy without being crumbly. The chicken was very juicy. The only drawback is if you really like spicy food, this isn't that, no where close to how spicy their on the bone chicken is. You can taste spice, but you can't feel spice. This extends to whatever sauce is on the sandwich, flavorful, not spicy. The biggest surprise for me were the pickles. I'm not a huge pickle fan, but it's obvious they went beyond the food service pickle that comes 5000 slices a jar. These things were thick, crunchy, and mild in flavor. It was a 10/10 I'm going to eat a lot of these things, if Iowa ever gets them.

I also tried the red beans and rice, the only side I've ever eaten there was the mashed potatoes, those red beans and rice were amazing, I'll probably alternate my side choices from now on.
