This week I’m indulging on the sandwich that is so good that people have died for it. The sandwich that has swept the nation; the Popeyes chicken sandwich.
It’s been the topic of many discussions as to if it is the best chicken sandwich out there, and it has led to many brawls between many civilized people.
I ventured down to my nearest southern chicken establishment to find myself sitting in a 20 minute drive thru line at 10:30 in the morning. I mean hell this chicken sandwich better be worth 20 minutes if it’s worth some people’s lives, so I had no problem waiting longer than usual.
My first thought was that these Popeyes workers weren’t exactly as cheerful as the Chick-fil-A workers but I can’t blame them since they’re working in a literal war zone.
Once I got the sandwich I was impressed by the size and girth of the $4 fast food item. It didn’t look like anything spectacular to the eye, just looked like the run of the mill chicken sandwich for the most part, there was a distinct difference from most when I took my first bite though.
The chicken was battered in a delicious buttermilk dredge, some tasty pickles, and a little mayo on a toasted bun. Simple and delicious.
This sandwich was juicy, tasty, and most of all a great value for the price.
Now although I devoured it in a span of time I’m not proud to admit, this sandwich was certainly not better than your everyday Chick-fil-A sandwich.
People are going mad over this like it’s some sort of culinary revelation, when in all reality it's just a solid chicken sandwich. That’s all it is. I’ll get it again and I’ll choke it down in a matter of seconds, but I’ve had better before, and I’m sure I will again.
So was it worth putting my ever so precious life on the line?
Of course, anything for the science of a taste test. If you’re looking for the best fast food chicken sandwich I would still direct you to your nearest Chick-fil-A establishment, but this sandwich from Popeyes is nothing to scoff at. So go get yourself one and you be the judge of if the craze is really worth it.
Just bring a police escort with you.
Verdict: Murderous Meats
