    For those who have tried BOTH the basic (not Spicy or Deluxe or other variant) Popeye's and Chik-fil-A fried chicken sandwiches, which is your preference:

    The regular chicken sandwich doesn't have lettuce or tomato.... just Chicken, and pickles - not even mayo.

    I was a skeptic but I tried the Popeye's and it pretty much lives up to the hype. I like Chick Fil A but the Popeye's spicy sandwich is bigger and spicier than the spicy CFA.

    I found Popeye's to be just a thicker breast. For me, it took away from the all around flavor. I'm going with Chic Filet. Although both are just a chicken sandwich. Yep, I said that out loud. I never wake up.and say, "man, I want a chic filet sandwich today."

    They're both great, but I give a slight edge to Popeye's. It's crispier and I like their chicken a bit more.

    Of the two I prefer Chik-fil-A.
    I like the Wendy's one too. Hell, what fast food places don't have a spicy chicken sandwich now?

    Popeye's has good chicken, but sadly no waffle fries.

    I can honestly say that I have never had a fried chicken sandwich. Or fried chicken. Sounds as appetising as a fried Mars bar...

    I'm sure you get more value for your money buying fried fish, there in Yorkshire. The economics work out differently when you're a thousand miles from the ocean.

    I'll go ahead and warn you off from Nashville Hot Chicken, the stuff is painfully spicy.

    Popeyes all the way for the win; by far the superior sandwich.

    A Popeyes opened in my town a few months ago and the lines were down the the street for weeks. (Kind of like the lines at the rec weed store that opened on Jan 1 just around the corner from it. Man, if the weed store also sold chicken sandwiches, this town wouldn't know how to cope. But, I digress.)

    Great sandwiches.

    5G burgers are excellent, but their fries totally suck

    True story:

    I needed batteries so I told my crew I'd grab lunch. After some arguing we agreed on 5G that was right around the corner.

    I went into 5G and ordered 13 burgers.

    Owner: OK, I got your burgers; fries?
    Vid: Nope, we're good.
    O: I can't believe no fries with so many burgers!!
    V: [lowering my voice] I got to be honest, your fries are terrible.
    O: [guy goes insane] Wadaya mean??? Fries are our specialty, you know that???
    V: I hear ya, but nobody in my crew likes them - they are just grease logs.
    O: OMG, I'm going to give you some FRESH !!! [the guy takes a basket of fries out of the oil] HERE. You tell me these are not the best!!!!!
    V: [reluctantly, I take a 500* fry from the pile, blowing on it to cool it] Yes, nice.
    O: See????? I give you a bag full, you give them to your gang and show them how good they are!
    V: Ok, thanks.
    [he pours the whole basket into a large paper bag, the grease soaking through immediately. I had to put the bag on a garbage bag in my truck so the grease would not stain the upholstery]

    I got back and told the story to my guys.

    Guy: Seriously??? Are they good?
    V: OMG, you won't believe it.
    [the crew instantly tore into the grease bag full of limp, greasy fries]
    Guys: Awwwgh, these are the same garbage as always! I'd rather eat lard from a can.
    V: Yeah, I could not believe it either.


    1,400 calories per serving of pure, limp grease:
