For the record. I also enjoy KFC's extra crispy fried chicken. Their sides - not so much. The addition of the spicy option at Popeyes and the great sides makes the difference.
BTW, their Cajun fries are also quite good. Tasty and crisp. SO had popcorn shrimp which she liked.
I eat KFC once every 8 years or so and coincidentally had one piece last night ( have been staying at my inlaws who like it). Sorry but it was disappointing.
My first job at 14 was washing dishes at KFC and the chicken was much more flavorful then. Plus the chicken itself tasted better. They got deliveries of whole chickens every day and broke them down by hand.
We drove right past a brand new Popeyes on the way to KFC. :-(
Popeyes is really good and the sides are also really good. Pretty much the only time I eat fried chicken is when I take Popeyes into Fenway Park for baseball game eats. There's a Popeyes just steps from the park -- the source of the chicken in the infamous "chicken and beer" incident.
I'm glad they don't have more convenient outlets around. Them and Shake Shack. I'd be there too often.
