Popeye's Spicy Chicken Sandwich Review

Okay, so over the summer I kept hearing about the chicken sandwich at Popeye's. The time I decided to try it, the line was out the door and I was like, "nope!" Sorry, I can't wait too long for food, especially when Wendy's down the street had no line.

However, I was curious. DID the chicken live up to the hype? I was all set to try it again and then Popeye's announced they were SOLD OUT.

Well, dang.

So when the sandwich returned, I knew I had to give it a taste. My family decided we'd go Sunday at 11. We hoped everyone else would be in church so there wouldn't be a line.



Did we succeed?





Yes!

There was NO line. There were at least 5 cars in the drive thru, but only one other person inside. Of course I ordered the spicy chicken sandwich. My husband went with the regular, my son got what I got, and my daughter wanted the popcorn shrimp. Chicken sandwiches don't excite her.







Oh and there were biscuits, of course. You can't go to Popeye's and not get biscuits. It's like a sin or something.





So how was the chicken sandwich?






I liked it! Juicy. Flavorful.


However, I'd ask for more spicy mayo next time. I think that's the spread that was on it. You also got a pickle. I might also add some ketchup. While the chicken flavors were there, I like more substance on my sandwich, if that makes sense. (For the Chick-fil-a chicken sandwich, I always add ketchup and Polynesian sauce.)


Would I get it again?

Yes! This sandwich definitely tasted less healthy than the chick-fil-a one. If you want a heartier fried chicken taste, go with Popeye's. If you want a calmer chicken taste, go with Chick-Fil-A. My son also liked the sandwich, as did my husband. (He put the Mardi Gras mustard on his.)

Oh, and the Apple Pie is amazing too. It's covered with cinnamon sugar. The inside is filled with apples. If you're too lazy to make apple pie for Thanksgiving, pick up a bunch of these.





Have you tried the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich yet? (I recommend Sunday at 11 if you don't want to deal with lots of people!)

  3. Even thought I am a die hard Chick Fil A connoisseur (and yes I had to Google how to spell that:)), Popeye's is my second choice when it comes to chicken. Their biscuits are the best.

  4. We are so in love with Chickfila... I don't know if I could get my kids to even try this. But I definitely want to give it a try. I'd probably add some chickfila sauce though haha

  5. Well now I am wondering if it's better than Chick-Fil-A's spicy chicken deluxe. My husband LOVES THAT ONE!

  7. That apple pie looks like it stole the show! I have been wanting to try this sandwich though, and I will totally ask for extra spicy mayo when I finally get it.

  10. We love Popeyes but the location by us is terrible. I loved the ones out in Chicagoland, they all were great and went above and beyond my expectations so I got addicted but these days we we avoid it whenever possible. Unfortunately this chicken sandwich has come out and now I need to try it. Glad to hear more about it before taking the trip in there. We still need to try it.

  12. I love Popeye's! I usually get chicken fingers, cajun rice (to die for), french fries, a biscuit, and an apple pie. Needless to say, I rarely finish it all and don't eat the rest of the day. But at least I got to taste all the flavors! I may have to try the chicken sandwich next time.

  23. We liked but it is not worth having to wait in line for it, rather make something at home until all the fuzz is over

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't eat meat, so I can't try it. But I have to admit that all of the fuzz got me curious. lol Thanks for sharing your honest opinion about it. I like the apple pie! It tastes amazing.

  25. I haven't tried their chicken sandwiches. I have heard they were good, but I'm not one that likes to wait in line either

  26. I kept hearing about the crazy things going on over this chicken sandwich. I am not really a fan of chicken in a sandwich to be honest, so I didn't really understand what the fuss was all about. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh my ...my husband would love this. he likes these fried chicken sandwiches, and much more if they are spicy!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds delicious, though there is no Popeye's near where I live. I do have to admit, I like Chick Fil A, so I'm going to have to give this sandwich a shot.

  29. it must have been a really good sandwitch to be sold out. Your photo just reminded of how big soda portions are in the US :)
