“Go for the spicy fried chicken and red beans & rice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is one terrific guilty pleasure. Yes, its fast food and yes the restaurants aren't known for their atmosphere.


the spicy chicken is the best fried chicken to be found. The red beans & rice taste as good as what you get on the Gulf Coast. The taste is very rich, not overly spicy, but lingering. The biscuits are fresh-baked and buttery.

There are always special deal "family meals" that are huge bargains. Just ask, "What's the best deal today?" Two can go for lunch, order a family meal, and take home a couple of days of leftovers. Left-over Popeyes chicken (reheated in the oven, not the microwave) is better than most others' freshly prepared.

Tip: Ask for several packets of "Cajun Sparkle." It looks like a flat pink packet of salt or pepper, but its a mixture of all the dry spices that make cajun and creole taste like cajun and creole.
