Popeye’s Redux

PopeyesPopeye’s Chicken and Biscuits, a popular fried chicken chain here in the South, is getting a makeover. The restaurant will now be known as “Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen”, in order to better reflect its Crescent City roots.

Man… I’d kill for some of their spicy chicken, red beans and rice, green beans, and mac and cheese right now! Sadly, we don’t have any Popeye’s in Charlotte (we do have Price’s, the home of the world’s best fried chicken, but it’s too damn far away… and they don’t make a spicy version… and it’s take out only). Charlotte does have a single Church’s Chicken, but I stopped eating there once the Muslims bought it and took all the pork off the menu. Fuckers. Sigh. Bojangles it is, I guess.

For the record, Popeye’s was named after Popeye Doyle, Gene Hackman’s character in The French Connection, and not the spinach-lovin’ cartoon character.
