Popeye's fried chicken is less salty than KFC. They also have really good biscuits.

CarolPa, you might like to try and make your own red beans and rice. There are plenty of good recipies and it's not real complicated. I've tried Zatarain's but won't do it again. Nowhere near as good as homemade.

And there are several recipes for it here on DC

I worked at a KFC in high school and was a fan for a long time. I really like their grilled chicken, but the gravy has changed and I don't like it as well as I used to. So I tried Church's and really liked it, including the mash and gravy, which are major comfort food for me.

Btw, Carol, KFC now has boneless chicken tenders and bites.

I know we have Popeye's around here, but not in the areas I frequent. Never been there. No reason, really; I guess because KFC and Church's are more convenient. And I'm not a fan of red beans and rice.

Popeye's is great as I remember. Its been more than a few years since i had some.
When I worked on the RR, I would go into town and get some for dinner.
Two piece snack.
Very good. Nice and spicy, but not to spicy and very moist.

We have whats called Antie "M"s here in SC. Its most always attached to a convenience/gas type store.
It is fantastic. It is cooked in a pressure fryer. No biscuits only rolls. Best coleslaw I have ever had.
When I do go out with the guys once a week, I bring some home for dinner. My wife and I really like it.

We have a Bojangles in the same area and we prefer as we call it (gas station) chicken!

There used to be a Popeye's but it was in a very bad part of town. I really wanted to try their chicken and red beans and rice but we never went there. Eventually it closed. Two months ago they closed a Wendy's and turned it into a Popeye's. It is right on RT 30 and it's always crowded so to me that says it's good. We will stop there someday. I want to try the red beans and rice. It's just not available in this Yankee town, and all I've ever had was Zatarains. I don't think it's the same.
"The one in our town is small, and not very busy".And usually there is/are reason(s) why a restaurant isn't busy!

I went to Popeye's not long ago and had the chicken tenders and WOW were they good, some of the best I've ever had.

I enjoy their chicken, though there are a couple of locations here I will not eat at again. This includes the one that is walking distance from the house, sadly.

I love Popeye's chicken, even if I do have to take it through Jiffy Lube on the way home to have the oil changed. Their drop biscuits are so much better than Kentucky Fried Gerbil's cut biscuits and all the sides are better than the same ol' same ol' sides at KFG.

Geez, I finally get it today that Pope Yes was a play on Popeyes and the title gets changed
Everytime I see the words pope and chicken in the same sentence I can't stop thinking of the last part to go over the fence Thanks mom

Back to the original poster's title.

I knew immediately Andy was talking about Popeye's. However, for years, I could only see "Pope Yes" in their graphics on their signs. The letters just "said" that. As a matter of fact, many of my family members call it Pope Yes.

As for the eatery, it's been years since I've had any of their food. However, there's recently been some TV advertizing about a new offering for some sort of spicy chicken that both Glenn and I are quite curious about trying. The only challenge for us is to find an outlet in our area.
