Best avoid it. I love their chicken.
I don’t think that’s weird. Fried food in general doesn’t agree with me too much anymore.
That said, the Popeye’s flounder sandwich was pretty great. I didn’t feel that great after eating it, but I’d get another.
The universe is just, and it wants me to have your share of Popeye's chicken. That's why.
The Colonel has gone downhill so bad up here he Makes Popeyes look great
Long ago I gave up eating chicken on the bone.
Like in the eighties.
Usually too salty for me, and the breasts were the only pieces with enough meat to be worth bothering with.
And often dry, as white meat can be.
And don't forget the significant upcharge for breasts...
Until I discovered Popeye's spicy chicken.
It's the ONLY fried chicken I will eat.
Two spicy breasts (or 3 if I'm really hungry) with Cajun rice.
Add a coupla jalapenos on the side.
Good ice tea too.
And it MUST be spicy - their regular chicken does nothing for me.
Now their customer service?
It's as bad as anyone else.
One common trick is to fill orders with regular chicken if spicy isn't available.
They won't bother to ask if you will wait while they cook more.
Also, there is ABSOLUTELY no customer support if you have an issue with a restaurant.
There is no corporate HQ that I could find.
Every phone number I tried put me right back into some woman working as a contractor fielding phone calls on customer complaints. Not even a Popeye's employee. Someone else here may know more about the ins and outs of their corporate workings, but it seems that NO ONE within their corporate structure is accountable for anything.
Like I said, it's as bad as anyone else.
I've never eaten Popeye's. The TV ads look good, but the shops are located out of the way in parts of town where I don't care to be after dark.
I do KFC once or twice a year and am generally pleased with what I get. Never had digestive tract problems with KFC. The chicken pot pies are very good IMO.
They cook their chicken in Olive Oyl
popeyes doesnt bother me but the smell of McDonalds just turns my stomache and I dont have to eat it..
but actually as to WHY it makes YOU sick might be a better question for a good Gastroenterologist.
If you havent had n MRI or a colonoscopy the WHY might be scarier than just popeyes making you feel ill.
Seriously all jokes aside.
I love Popeyes, especially the Spicy Chicken Tenders and the Cajun Mashed Potato's and Gravy ...
I can and have eaten about everything that walks, flies, or crawls, but it's been close to forty years since I tried Popeyes they opened one on the east side of town, that was back when Kentucky Fried Chicken was really good, and I didn't like Popeyes as much at the Colonel's chicken. If it's hot and spicy though, I'm gonna have to give it a go!
Fried chicken is my favorite protein. Popeye's is my favorite chicken, but they have raised the price to the point where I get Kroger Deli and season it myself. My wife and I are still trying to learn how to cook it right; no luck so far, but her son has it down.
I never liked any of Popeye's sides except for the cajun fries.
I'm sure that the mashed potatoes are powdered and the gravy ain't really gravy.
A bit irrelevant but when I was 15 dad took us to the us and we visited New Orleans. We went to a Popeyes and they asked us did we want it hot?
Being Australian we thought they meant did we want it heated up? Yes please.
they meant chilli. ...
For a while a few years ago, Popeyes was one of my favourite pre- or post-gig meals. More recently, with the pandemic and eating healthier (relatively) due to health concerns, I haven’t been able to stomach the odd Popeyes run anymore. Maybe they changed an ingredient or two that no longer agrees with your or my stomach, or I may just not be able to stomach (no pun intended) grease/processed food anymore.
I've never eaten at a Popeye's. For some reason, something always told me to avoid the place... I don't know why, but there's just something about that place that sort of makes me uneasy to look at. Anyway if I want fried chicken I'll buy it at the deli, and add my own spices to it when I get it home
I've tried Popeye's just a few times when a friend wanted to go. I prefer Mary Browns, but Popeye's never made me feel sick.
Food sensitivities are on the rise. I used to love deli, like pastrami, but now the nitrates make me ill. And whatever is in instant mashed potatoes. There's so much added to food now to extend shelf life, or for various other reasons. I have to be careful.
They’ve asked me that a couple of times.
Because you're missing the other half of Popeye:
I can eat their mild, but the spicy does something evil to my insides, and I like spicy food. Certain spices I might not have a tolerance for anymore. It’s a shame, but I’ve had to live with it...
I had a similar problem with Panda Express while living in VA. Wasn't as severe as your situation, but I doubt I'll eat at one again unless no other option.
Anytime my plumbing gets backed up, all I need to do is eat at Pizza Ranch. Gets things moving again usually within an hour or two.
