If the idea is a po-boy, they put too much stuff on it. Hash browns???

Popeyes has a good po-boy.

Can I toss something in here? McDonalds Grand Mac is happening. I've not tried it.

Here's one review:
REVIEW: McDonald's Grand Mac - The Impulsive Buy

I always thought the original Big Mac was tasty, but a bit small for a big appetite.

Eating anything there, except the biscuit sandwiches, leaves much to be desired.

Okay. About replicating KFC chicken, who here does pressure cooking with oil in order to get KFC taste? Noone.

Sorry for hijacking your thread, kleenex.

Subway has a corner on the market in that they bake their own bread. KFC has a corner on the market in that they pressure cook their chicken in oil under pressure.

I'm not ready to give up fast food drive thrus.

There are NO KFC's in the city, only PopeYes. We have to travel to any suburb for KFC. Yes, it probably has to do more with who owns which franchises, but the market demarcations looks strange.

Noted. Not sure if they pressure fry.

FYI: Popeye's Chicken is named after Popeye Doyle from the movie "The French Connection." Not Popeye the sailor.

Popeye's is more of an urban franchise. You will find them in the burbs -- I have one about a mile from home -- but their menu is definitely not Chick-fil-A.

BTW, I can't figure out why people love Chick-fil-A. Bland with a capital "B" and four bucks for a piece of chicken on a bun with two pickles? Seriously? Don't get me started on those waffle-looking pieces of unseasoned cardboard they call fries.

I do like some things at KFC. If I have limited time to grab lunch, I'll take their chicken tenders over a lot of fast food. Their battered tater-fries are pretty good, too, even if they are fat, sodium and cholesterol bombs.

I've never been to one. We don't have any near me. I believe they are similar to Popeye's, with a cajun flavor. But, like I said, I've never been to one.
