i have wanted to try one but dont buy into all the hype and so forth.

I stop and get Chik Fila from time to time. Its ok

Popeyes is awesome. Much better than the others out there.

Now a feel like I need to kick someones ass and have no idea why....lol

Seriously...Its a very good sandwich and love the crispiness.

I haven't tried a chicken sandwich from any of those fast food companies.

I haven't tried Chick Fila, yet! The Popeyes sandwich is pretty tasty, but basic compared to what Popeyes Canada offers. Here they have several sandwiches.

Ok.
Didn't understand the pickles delio or the hype.
I guess I completed something off the bucket list. LOL

Two reasons I’ll never eat Popeyes
Rolled up on two different Popeyes parking lots with gangsters heads cracked open, one from a .45, other 12 gauges 00 buck

something about the light purple brain matter/thick blood mass in a Popeyes parking lot just keeps me from walking in those doors lol.

I avoid fast food like the plague, except for In N Out, Chick Fil-A and the occasional Popeyes. I've had those Popeyes sandwiches twice. Which means I've taken approximately ten years off my life. Totally worth it.

Tried the ChickaFilet back East and it was different that what we're getting out here.
Prefer the Popeyes spicy way over it.

Funny, but that's pretty much why I stay out of LA...
But damn, I really miss my mexican food!

Popeyes isn't an option up here. We have Chic-fi-la, and it's kind of our go-to for chicken on the go. There's one down in Phoenix, not far from Children's Hospital. Even in the big city, the people are friendly and the place is clean;)

I like chic filet. It’s that sweet spot right between the church and the “up with people” crowd. :D

Exactly. Just drive around the big chunks and do a fast roll through the drive through. :cool:

Something about brain matter and that thick purple/red blood from the Aorta being washed down the gutter just sticks with me when I see a Popeyes sign.
Used to be if I saw a Popeyes, I was about to make a good gun/Narco arrest nearby.

Now they got successful and are in low crime areas....confusing lol!!

You fucktard:p
It's almost dinner time here at the Monkey Farm. Flashbacks to the car accident I witnessed in Quartzite. Two on the passenger side opened up, that funky purplish brain matter on the surviving kids I helped out of the car.

In the movies, the brain on the screen is pink. In the lab, in the jar, they're greyish. When it's "fresh", it ain't that way:confused:

Yep quite different
I lost my good friend on the job in 93’ when his Patrol Car was T boned by a drunk.
His head got pinned between roof and Concrete light pole when it spun out

I hate brain matter after that. You never forget when it’s your peer...

I don't think you forget some things, regardless of how you try. I've tried most ways. I've seen more than I should have of injured, or more so, friends. Luckily, the only times brain matter was a visual was two seperate car accidents...and people I didn't know.

Not in my job description. Unfortunately, trying to be a "good" person can leave you with images burn in. Keep driving by like the rest of the world, and it wouldn't be the case. Hats off to you guys, and firemen too, you took the job knowing how ugly it is.

But you have Portillos, I would never care about chicken sandwiches again if I had Portillos locally

I'm going to take a guess and say one of those calls was at the Popeyes at Jefferson and La Brea, always bad shit happening at that location.

Here Popeyes makes a Cajun spicy chicken sandwich. Might have it for dinner.
