what's better KFC vs Popeye
vanity | 3/27

Posted on 03/27/2011 3:35:45 PM PDT by Temple Owl

We just had Popeyes for dinner. There was a lively discussion regarding it compared to KFC. I'd like your thoughts. I say you can't beat the red beans and rice though.

This thread got me to thinking.

The best fried chicken I have ever eaten was at a chain in SE Alabama called “Rons”.

I once talked to the owner and he said the flavor came from it being marinated overnight. I think they only lasted a couple of years. I am not sure what the problem was but the chicken was great.

Now, that is a classic response!

I wonder how long that has been around...I just finished reading Samuel Eliot Morison's book "The Great Explorers" and in it he talks about someone's crew (maybe Magellan's) who ate some kind of new animal and declared "It tasted like chicken"

Granted, it probably DID taste like chicken, but I will bet as far back as those guys, one sailor might say to another "Yea, I have heard the roasted flesh of that unknown beast is as that of chicken..."

KFC original can’t be beat..Popeye’s chicken has gotten a lot smaller at least down here in Ga. Church’s has the best sides.
KFC sides have really went downhill.

While folks are also bringing up one-off places, there is absolutely nothing and I mean nothing as good as Willie Mae's Scotch House in New Orleans.

The last I heard, Ms. Willie Mae is something like 100 years old and still cooking in the kitchen.

I prefer Popeyes over KFC when traveling (which is about the only time I eat fried chicken)

I agree with some posters, I have had some EVIL fried chicken from KFC, but it could be the same with Popeyes if you visit enough of them.

Popeye chicken strips are fantastic, but nothing beats KFCs potato wedges.

Bleh to your KFC and Popeye's. Bleh I say!

The best fried chicken on the planet is this little shack on Beach Road in Jacksonville, FL that has been serving up Southern Fried Heaven since the Great Depression.

When Col Sanders was alive, he used to pop into locations unannounced and taste the gray. If it wasn't up to his standards, he would tell them to dump the whole batch and start again. If he were still alive, the uneven quality would not exist. Lots of KFC gravy being sold that would make the Col roll in his grave.

And ther's the rub. When the Colonel was alive things were done right! He lived during a time when quality was king, when serving the customer was duty - a matter of personal pride.

The best “fast food” chicken I ever ate was at “Lee's Fried Chicken”. The best.

That's “Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken”

Love the coleslaw with Wednesdays dinner!!

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!

Met Lee Cummings (nephew of Colonel Sanders!) at a FR (Famous Recipe, not FreeRepublic!) in the early 80's. Very cordial and down to earth person!

Used to love Hardee’s chicken but most quit selling it. Found one a few years ago near Summerville South Carolina that still has chicken to this day but after a couple years they even changed to a flavor like any other stores deli chicken. Hardee’s chicken was the same as Roy Rodger's as Hardee’s owns that chain.

We have to drive to past two KFCs to get to a one that does good chicken.

Love Popeye's out of all of them. Church's second. Not a big Bojangles's fan.

My mom used to make AMAZING Maryland Fried Chicken (but not with the gravy)

She made up some flour coating with black pepper and a couple of other simple spices in them, coated all those chicken parts up and cooked them in about an inch of hot oil in that huge black frying pan she used to use.

Man. Was that ever the best. It is different somehow, cooking with the chicken only part of the way in the oil instead of fully immersing it.

I sure do miss my mom. A lovely woman who could cook just about anything, and had the skill to cook for either 4 people of 20, and nobody ever missed a serving. How on earth does one do that?

Culver’s is very good. Can’t compare to Popeye’s - never had it; Culver’s beats KFC hands down.

Popeyes all the way, KFC “HAD” good chicken 40 years ago, then they changed to a different “original recipe” for both original and extra crispy, they even ran a TV ad saying there were many “original recipes”. Todays Popeye’s is similer to KFC’s old extra crispy.

“When Col Sanders was alive, he used to pop into locations unannounced and tase the gravy.”

I have done the same thing, when I see a sign that says “Best fried chicken in......you pick a location. I go in and ask an employee, what color is the gravey? If they answer brown, I just thank them and keep on driving.

This goes double for Chicken Fried Steak. White gravy defines the end product of fried chicken and chicken fried steak being served.

No, that is not racist. :)
