    Mediocre at best with an off putting starch coating for fake crispiness. The wedges were far better.

    When it comes to "fast food chicken" I have found Chick-fil-A's far superior to KFC or Popeyes. Unfortunately, the closest one is 25 miles away. Had the nuggets and a Cobb salad last time. Both were superb...and the lines around the building for drive through service moved quickly, with several employees taking orders. Oh, the waffles fries are killer, too.

    Haven't had KFC in decades, and for me, Popeye's is for red beans and rice. But do enjoy Chick-fil-A's chicken preparations -- and those waffle fries. When I'm on the road for business (and therefore eating for speed, not for discovering local cuisine), a Chick-fil-A is always a welcome sight.

    When compared to KFC and Popeyes’ specialties, Chick-fil-A’s versions are tasteless, texture less and far from filling. This should be no surprise since Chick-fil-A does not serve whole, bone in pieces of fried chicken.

    If I want a sandwich made with chicken I might go any of the three; but when I want chicken, only KFC and Popeye’s qualify.

    So you are basically saying that you like chicken pieces on the bone more than a chicken sandwich. My only take is if you can't find better than those two places you must not like it that much. Look around and there is some awfully good stuff out there.

    Evanston Chicken Shack by a mile!

    Popeye's for a quick stop or, late night car consuming with a pint of Mad Dog 20/20 in an ice filled Hydro Flask water bottle.

    No, what I’m saying is that making a general comparison between Chick-fil-A and traditional fried chicken chains makes no sense. It’s fine to prefer C-f-A for sandwiches, but saying they have better chicken is a non sequitur.

    I know what you meant. I would never compare Chick-fil-a overall to KFC, Popeye's, Brown's, Gus's, Bojangles, Lee's, Mrs. Winner's or any other chicken chain that serves chicken on the bone which I find superior to sandwiches, tenders and nuggets. And I have never been a fan of waffle fries. I like Chick-fil-a for their sandwich, nuggets and especially my favorite - the chicken biscuit. Popeye's needs to put their chicken sandwich on a large biscuit. That would be the ultimate for me.
