Popeyes vs Chick Fil A

Recommended Posts

I finally got my hands on a Popeye's spicy chicken sandwich and I came away with two thoughts.

 

1. It was awesome. The guy who stabbed the other guy for budging in line did nothing wrong.

 

2. The crew at the Erie Blvd location in Syracuse is easily the worst I've ever seen at any eatery. Just awful service.


I think popeye’s is known for universally bad service. When I got my sandwich the other day, the line wasn’t long and yet moved extremely slowly. the workers forgot to open half the dining room area. The kitchen was total chaos.  
 

Plus, it was funny how just about every other person came back up, complaining about errors with their orders. They kept just Basically giving people free food To fix the problems. even my order randomly came with an extra sandwich.

 

i think that’s what gives chic fil a the edge. I would rather have a slightly worse sandwich but with much better service.

All the locations here in Syracuse suck. I've never had good service at any. But I still go, knowing how it will be. 

 

Chik-Fil-A is like the OCD Soccer Mom with a spotless kitchen scented with Febreezed to perfection, that buys name brand products, puts just the right amount of mayo on the bread, cuts it diagonally and removes the crust

 

Popeyes is like a ghetto/trailer park Mom, whose kitchen has a pall of cigarette smoke, buys the bottom shelf cereal in a bag, and smokes a cigarette while putting whatever you ask for on a totally unhealthy but incredibly tasty sammich

Your first paragraph was spot on. They were screaming at each other in the kitchen. There were 2 of us in store waiting for our orders. The woman who took my order forgot to fill it. Just started playing on her phone. I had to ask if they were waiting on chicken or something and she just apologized and said she forgot.

This seems randomly mean.  😦

 

And somewhat inscrutable. I am unclear what your crime supposedly is.

In any event, maybe we can start a thing. I apologize for the fella who is sorry for you being you.

 I was just teasing that he preferred the sanitized experience and food he described as not as good, as opposed to the better food, with a little bit of risk (and in his case a free bonus sandwich!).

 

you’ll have to excuse me being a little rough around the edges- I’ve grown up in the mean streets of the Popeyes drive thru.

Chic Fil A and IN And Out are by far the best fast food operations out there imho. Food is decent but what sets them apart is the consistently friendly, well mannered, clean well kept employees and the equally well kept, clean stores. For me that's the biggest thing.

yea you can tell right from the first bite.
 

it has a much better bun, and the chicken has a consistent crunch and taste through out.
