I had to repeat my order three times and they still got it wrong. There was a sign to check your order before you leave, but I didn't think I had to count the chicken pieces. I was short two pieces of chicken and one tender. I also ordered spicy and got a mix of some spicy and some mild.... More

The place was clean and comfortable with A friendly staff. The chicken was juicy and flavorful with great sides and beautiful breading. This place has got me hooked, coming back and recommending to friends.

This joint needs to be torn down and rebuilt. The food is so so and the lack of service and friendly employees is beyond belief. It is like you are a bother to them....Not yo worry Popeye's, I love your chicken but will never go to your place on Preston again,

We stop here when we're in town at the in laws house. Always good fast food. This time it was hot out of the deep fryer and fantastic. All we got was the meat with no sides but the sides are always good, too.

The Preston Highway location is a busy drive-through and sit-in place. I chose to go inside for my take-out order. The staff, though very busy, remained courteous and patient with the customers ahead of me as they tried to make up their mind on what to order. The short wait before my turn gave me time to review the extensive... More

The environment was clean. The staff were friendly. The food quality was outstanding, and offered a great quality Popeye's meal. Simply put, I would recommend this location to anyone.

Popeye's has the best fried chicken around, but I guess you have to be Cajun to really enjoy the sides. Don't care for rice and beans or slaw with dill pickles. The spicy coated fries are good. I wish they had a better selection of sides. Still go there and eat the chicken!

The colonel lost his edge on chicken after John Y sold them. I don't get the spicy, but the young un's love it, I like the original recipe. Not much on any of their sides, but just take care of that at home and bring the chicken from Popeyes. Great sunday afternoon stuff.

I have seen many, many Popeyes TV commercials & have always wanted to try this chicken & "Boy" am I glad I finally did. The best prepared chicken I have ever had. The side options are also very unique & well prepared. The red beans & rice are excellent. The biscuit are covered with a butter spread & need no... More
