That stuff is disgusting... commercials were funny tho. NEW YORK CITY!?
I've been there, it's a good value. Where are you from?
Thinking of making a gumbo
anyone have some good recipes?
I go there too, as well as La Penca Azul Are you from the Alameda area?
Yes I am.
La Penca Azul is bomb too. I prefer their original name La Piñata. Haha. Their carne asada nachos!!! Super Burrito Famoso!!! The El Pescado with corn tortilla!! **drooooooolllssss**
How is this chicken vs. Popeyes/CFA?
Haha, nice! My boyfriend is from there too, so I'm in Alameda quite often. And yes their nachos are bomb!
Been here once, if they were closer to me I’d go twice a week
Live around the area.
Kinda far. But will make an excuse to go. Haha
There is La Pinata in San Leandro. Is it the same?
sesame seeds on the crust!
that looks next level.
It’s the same. Supposedly there was a dispute between the family so they split up. But the menu and everything else remained the same. But I still prefer the Alameda location, it’s a better setup imo.
Spicy. You could kinda see the little jalepeno flakes
Was really curious about the new sandwich from Popeye’s so I got a mild and spicy sandwich and asked them to go light on the sauce. It didn’t take 15 min to make and i got it within 5 min.
Maybe my expectations was too high but I don’t think it’s something to rave about. It was decent and meaty but the mild version was kinda bland. The spicy version was a little better but not by much. The buns were too soft and the bottom bun was too thin.
The peanut butter banana pie was ok but not great too. The cream wasn’t very smooth and the pie crust had the grainy texture instead of it being crunchy like graham crackers.
If I go back I would rather get their original chicken or chicken tenders instead.
I know how @PoweredbyMSG gets down. I'm taking his word. Is it better than CFA???
They both have their ups and downs. But if I have to choose and give points. I’ll give CFA 3.5 and Popeyes 4.0/4.1 out of 5.
Edit: giving Popeyes a 3.9
Whoa, so you mean to tell me that it's not gonna knock Chick-Fil-A off like everyone else has been claiming?
I tried this once.
But I ****ed up the roux.
Nah. It won’t. Lol. I could still see people rather go to CFA.
I think I would still rather go to CFA honestly. Just the service, cleanliness and other menu options at CFA makes up for it and more.
when the bottom bun is too thin >>>>
yeah those sandwiches are looking uber basic in @PoweredbyMSG pics. Still might give one a shot later tonight
It’s worth a try. But I really don’t think it’s all that based on all these reviews.
