I have a bone to pick with Popeyes

tried the Popeyes chicken sandwich for the first time, while it did taste good go take a look on you tube of the comparisons before they ran out of chicken.
the chicken was a lot thicker and extended well outside the bun.

what I got was thinner than chick-fil-a and well inside the buns as I threw some of the bun away not wanting to eat just bread.

corporate greed ?

    I had Arby's brisket sandwich last Sunday. It was no where close to resembling the picture from their ad. :/kpljadjzj1tr.jpg

    they all do that but the you tube videos were of people buying the sandwich from popeye stores.

    I've had one of the Popeyes chicken sandwiches. It was good, but it could have used more of the added sauce to compensate for the lack of chicken.

    notice, they didn't reduce the price when they reduced the size.

    The chicken legs at popeyes looks like the wing drummette of the wing at most other restaurants.

    I think the church's fried chicken cut should be the industry standard.

    We like Popeye's. The other day the drive through line was extended onto the main street. What? Never had the chicken sandwich though. Maybe we'll give it a try.

    Arby's and diarrhea seem to go hand in hand, or some other bad analogy.
    Why hasn't someone cracked the code for a healthy drive through restaurant yet? Chick fil a has some effective "wholesome, good food" marketing working for them, but its still trash IMO.

    Well. There are some companies capitalizing on this. Such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods.

    All plant based meat/seafood alternatives. That taste just like... yeah. Meat or seafood. I guess everyone left the tofu type meat alternative to this science based plants that taste like cow or fish thing. Lol

    Cheers. I don’t normally do fast food but when I do, I go for the one that really effs me up. Taco Bell. Not saying it is really bad. I do enjoy the authentic tacos. Haha

    When I moved from Maryland to California in 1976 I never had Mexican food. After my first trip to Taco Bell I thought I was in heaven. :)

    When I move to CA in 74 I saw a kid eating a burrito and I thought he was eating a mostly used roll of toilet paper.

    To be clear it looked like a roll with just a few feet of paper left on it not the used part. that would be a wet burrito.

    He shot a man in self defense. Him and a colleague were shot at, the colleague was killed. Col Sanders picked up the dead colleagues gun and returned fire hitting, but not killing, the assailant. I use to work in the KFC home office and answered directly to his personal assistant of many years and was able to pick up several interesting stories about the Col. I did meet Colonel Sanders when I was younger, several years before I started working for KFC.

    Awesome. We should start a "Did you know" thread,

    No kidding.

    I'm more interested in learning how Ronald McDonald caught The Hamburglar trying to steal 3 quarter pounders from Mayor McCheese.
