The chicken-to-mayonnaise ratio was just to my liking. Not too little and not too much! The brioche bun was soft and the chicken was very tender, while the breading was crunchy and crispy. I even enjoyed the pickles and I’m the type of person who pulls them out of every sandwich/burger out there. I’m no pickle expert but I’d say they compliment the sandwich quite well.
For those of you who want to know how the chicken sandwich compares to Chick-fil-A or which is better, all I have to say is Chick-fil-A who?
UPDATE: I had previously given the sandwich a 4 out of 5 rating after eating it twice at two different locations. After eating it at a third Popeyes location I will have to lower my rating to a 3.5 due to the inconsistency of the taste of the sandwich at this particular location.
I still think it’d be tastier if it had some lettuce and tomato and maybe even few more pickles in there.
So, yeah, the Popeyes chicken sandwich is pretty good.
But did it change my life? Nope.
Would I spend over an hour in line waiting for one? Nope.
And I would definitely not be fighting anyone over this sandwich. So yeah, the sandwich is worth $3.99, but please be nice to Popeyes employee. These sandwiches are here to stay, so there’s no need to go to jail over it, there’s plenty of time to get out there to try one.
