    Will update when done

    Update:

    5 pieces spicy, mac n cheese, fries and 3 biscuits - Pleasantly surprised!! Better than what I thought and WAYYY better than KFC or Mary Browns.

    Only complaint was how long it took to get it and they short changed me on the amount fries.

    Overall I will dine on this delicious commoner food again.

    Their biscuits are delicious. Hope you got a couple extra.

    The gravy is actually just vaginal discharge.

    Probably my favorite fast food fried chicken. Hopefully you got both original and spicy.

    5 pieces, 2 sides, 3 biscuits

    This is a Canadian Popeye's - not sure if that requires an asterisks on the true fried chicken authenticity

    I had some in Louisiana while visiting. I was drunk and it was still garbage.

    It's only a true Popeyes if the inside of the restaurant was greasy and all around disgusting but you eat the food anyway because it's great. It's like Waffle House or something.

    No, clean location - but I live in one of the most WASP areas imaginable and I'm the only white person waiting for food - so, I'm taking this as a good sign.

    If you're in Louisana, you don't need to go to Popeye's. Fried chicken joints are probably a dime a dozen there.

    Quick late night drunken drive through mission.

    I smashed plenty of authentic Louisiana cuisine during the visit, and it was amazing.

    Yeah, that's like going to a Pizza Hut in NYC. You'd trip over 15 awesome pizza joints before you laid eyes on a single Pizza Hut.
