Chicken Sandwich Wars
« on: September 10, 2019, 03:44:31 PM »
I was (and still am) a fan of the Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Deluxe :notworthy:.  I always (well not always, but sometimes) wondered why Popeyes never had a chicken sandwich.  So when they introduced one last month, I had to go try it.  I managed to get 3 (I think) of the Spicy version over a 3-4 week period before they ran out >:(.  I probably need to eat a few dozen more :D to see if it can knock Chick-Fil-A off my personal favorite list.

So, which one is your favorite?  Popeyes, Chick-Fil-A, or some other local/chain?

The new Popeyes sandwich has been completely sold out everywhere I've gone to in the Bay Area ever since it was announced, so I'm of the impression that it's being artificially hyped up.  They already had a po boy sandwich for years, how much different and better can the new one really be?

Chick-Fil-A is still the king of fast-food chicken sandos IMO.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwich is my favourite. The only one that I’ve found that is actually spicy.

Wait... do you guys have Wendy’s down there?

Note to self: try the Popeye's chicken sandwich asap... (I keep forgetting it's there, and I'm not near one usually.)

Chik's chicken is great, no doubt, but Pop's for me is better. Also, their biscuits are epic, whereas Fil-A has...... soggy waffle fries.  :buck2:

Then again, CFA has their lemonade (and related products, like cheesecake)!  :bd:

But Pop has Po Boys, including crawfish in season (usually November).

....it's probably just as well that I don't live near anything other than a Subway with a Pizza Pro tacked on. That's more than enough for me.  :hide:

Went off the keto diet today to try out Popeye's.  There's only one in the greater Vancouver area but it is reasonably close to my place.  I suspect because it's in Canuckistan but the menu was limited and the new sandwich was not available.  What they did have was pretty much bog standard fast food.  Breaded chicken meat that was stringy and thin.  Was not impressed at all.

How long've you been on the keto diet SDR? Any notable results yet?

Not a sammich but my personal favorite was Wendy’s spicy chicken nuggets.

Wendy’s spicy chicken sammich is also good but they put schtuff on it (mayo, lettuce, tomato)

Haven’t tried the Popeyes yet.
Insert witty comment here.

Chik-Fil-A for me though I have not tried Popeyes. Wendy's is good too and I hear that KFC has a good chicken sandwich as well. I like my fried chicken on a plate, un-covered by bread, with a bone in it like God intended it to be.  :dreamer:

You can get bone-in chicken at Popeyes.

I don't think Popeyes does the po boy anymore.  It was replaced by the new sando :(
