    Has anyone had the regular or spicy one?

    They’ve been huge out here. Completely sold out at most stores.

    I wanted to give it a try, but it was sold out.

    No, but the chicken sandwich war has caused me to have two Chick-Fil-A ones in the past week because it reminded me of how much I like them. I'm not at all suggestible to advertising.

    I've only eaten at Popeyes twice. Once was really good, the second time was terrible (dry, bland). I've been reluctant to try again.

    Sold out at the store? What do you mean? Does popeyes sell frozen food or something in supermarkets?

    I have tried the spicy chicken sandwich from the restaurant. They are good.

    I love me some popeye's chicken. Way bettter than KFC.

    It means they don’t have an infinite supply of them. They get so many shipped to each location and evidently, the locations I’ve been to sold out.

    I tried back to back days at two different locations by me and since they didn’t have it, as a result, I’ve ordered a total of 15 pieces of chicken, a large red beans and rice, a small red beans and rice, a biscuit, and a small coke.

    Big fan of Popeye's. Can't stand Chick-fil-A. Like almost on the level of loathing. I've never had a Chick-fil-A sandwich that wasn't as dry and bland as cardboard. Do not get the appeal.

    I’ve gotten the spicy chicken deluxe and it’s never been dry.

    I keep hearing this but the empirical evidence suggests otherwise. Unless everyone has a dramatically different definition of dry than I do.

    Although my son and a few of his friends went with my wife and me to prove it wasn't a dry sandwich. We all got both spicy and regular. They were all dry. My son and his friends were all saying "yeah they are dry, I don't understand, they never are". Maybe I'm cursed or something.

    But I've never had that problem at Popeye's.

    Did you order the spicy chicken sandwich, or the spicy chicken sandwich deluxe? If you don't specify deluxe, it's dry because it's just chicken and bread.

    Chick fil a is my favorite. If it's dry you should put some of that chick fil a sauce on it. (You should even if it's not dry imo) That's my favorite sauce as well. Kind of a honey mustard except better.

    At Chick Fil A, you need to get the nuggets. I like 'em plain, but the Polynesian sauce is pretty good.

    Their nuggets are pretty good. And I usually do put sauce on the sandwich but I'm not a fan of most of their sauces. Just haven't been very impressed at all so far. And I have ample opportunity because everyone at my work is enamored with them so we get them at almost every lunch meeting. Ugh.

    I've had Popeye's a couple of times. It is my favorite chicken sandwich.

    I mean, it's fast food, not sure how anyone can be enamored with it. To me, CfA is better than most fast food, and I like the flavor of the chicken and fries that peanut oil adds. Their side of fruit is actually really good fruit (strawberries, oranges, apples). I often get grilled nuggets and fruit. One of the better fast food options from a health standpoint. No other fast food restaurant has something similar that tastes good.

    I have similar feelings regarding In n' Out and White Castle. Fries are ok. Burgers are ok. Fairly cheap, but give me five guys, Fat Burger or Culvers. Shake Shack is decent too.

    Wendy's Spicy Chicken is hit or miss. Sometimes it is juicy and delicious, other times it is flat and dry, even has fatty tissue crap in it sometimes. If they were consistent, it would be my favorite.
