They have quite a few $5 Big Boxes – I’m not really sure what quantifies a big box – but it seems like everything I order comes in one. I’ve been ordering the 2 piece bone-in or the tenders meal.
Because it’s so close to my house – I’ve gone back multiple times and tried different sides to see what I like. This time was cajun fries – I don’t know why they were “cajun” – except maybe some seasoning – that I couldn’t really taste.
I always get dark meat chicken – I’m just not a fan of chicken breast from a restaurant like this – they tend to be dry. I like thighs & legs. I get one piece spicy and one piece mild – the spicy isn’t too spicy but I like it. I like having one of each – then it’s a surprise when I bite into it. The breading is very crispy – it also is not Larry-friendly in that there are eggs somewhere in the process – so Popeyes dinners are Heather-only. The dark meat though is very juicy and I really like it.
The red beans & rice I loved – it’s great every time. I don’t know that it is in any way authentic but I like it nonetheless.
I also tried the tenders and was a bit surprised at how much different they were. They were rubbery and just not good. Right now they have a Smoky Garlic Chile Chicken – but it’s only in the tenders – so I’ll avoid it.
The biscuits are my favorite – I like them so much more than KFC – they’re really buttery and don’t need any toppings. I also tried the mac & cheese – it’s very creamy and cheesy – I loved it – but you have to really like it creamy.
Why Should You Go? If you’re looking for a new fried chicken place – give it a whirl! I like the sides and chicken better but the tenders are a no-go.
