    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???

  16. 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

  19. 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.

  22. It’s worth a try. But I really don’t think it’s all that based on all these reviews.
