Poll: Which Chicken restaurant is the best - KFC, Pop-Eye's, or Chik-Fil-A (59 votes)

KFC is the best 31%
Pop-Eyes has the best chicken ... and Shrimp! 22%
Chik-Fil-A is the best 47%

So which of those three chicken joints is the best? Who has the best food and which one has the best deals? Are they all the same, how do they compare to each other?

I've only tried KFC, but I've seen commercials for Pop-Eye's and some of their stuff look pretty good (like the dipping chicken). There aren't any Chik-Fil-A's in CT to my knowledge so I can't try them, but there is a Pop-Eye's. Would any of you recommend Pop-Eye's?

Back in the day I use to love Church's and Popeyes. Salty, greasy and spicy.

KFC has the best chicken. Popeyes has the best fries and biscuits. Chik-Fil-A. . .is Chick-Fil-A.

Popeye's, by far. KFC is okay and I don't care to give my money to homophobic organizations so I'll never try Chik-Fil-A.

@thebest31406:

Pop-Eye's stuff looks pretty good. Is it faster than the other places ("Louisiana fast")?

@Makhaidos:

Go figure one place has better biscuits and one has better chicken in your experience. Does one have better prices?

KFC's chicken wedges are pretty good.

They're all expensive to me. KFC tends to be slightly cheaper with larger meals.

I've only ever had KFC between those three. The other two aren't around here. But KFC is my 2nd favorite fast food restaurant in general.

#8 Posted by WhiteKnight77 (12018 posts) -

I can't comment on Popeye's as I have never had it, I avoid it. To me, one does the chicken sandwich well and the other does fried chicken the way I like. The last time I tries Church's, it was bland and tasteless.

lol Popeyes has no vote, but I like Popeyes though. Good fries and biscuits but I prefer Chick-fil-A.

#10 Edited by s_h_a_d_o (1295 posts) -

None of the above... they all sanction and thrive upon intensive broiler-meat exploitation.

#11 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

Never had Chik-Fil-A, but only because there are none around me. So out of the other two, I vote KFC, but Popeyes has better biscuits. If there was a Chik-Fil-A around, I would eat there a lot just because I believe in freedom of expression (regardless if I agree with it or not) and would support them to show it.

#12 Posted by KC_Hokie (16099 posts) -

Chik-Fil-A is my favorite for fast food chicken.

#13 Posted by thegerg (15418 posts) -

Either Bush's or Bojangle's.

#14 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

Never had Popeye's, so I can't comment. From what I remember Chik-Fil-A was pretty good, but not as good as KFC though. But, it's been a decade or so since I ate at Chik-Fil-A, and I will not give them my business now, so I can't comment on if they're better or worse now.

#15 Posted by coolbeans90 (21305 posts) -

I like Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, and Popeye's biscuits are pretty great.

#16 Edited by deeliman (2438 posts) -

We only have KFC here, so I can't really comment on it. KFC has good chicken though.

Fixed that for you. The whole Chik-Fil-A thing had nothing to do with standing up for freedom of expression.

In my country there is only KFC so... KFC!

#19 Posted by byof_america (1386 posts) -

Chik-Fil-A is good, but you're missing to staples of the fast food chicken industry: Raising Cane's and Brother's Chicken. Both are freakin' delicious, but the edge goes to brother's because it's cheap and it's in a gas station so you can kill a lot of birds with one stone going there.

#20 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

Popeyes because of the biscuits. The red beans and rice is good too. I don't like fried chicken much.

#21 Posted by PernicioEnigma (5385 posts) -

They're all equally disgusting junk food crap. I cannot fathom how people can put that sh*t into their body. No self respect I guess...

#22 Posted by byof_america (1386 posts) -

@PernicioEnigma: This reminds me so much of a Jim Gaffigan joke concerning how food is made. I think it was about hot dogs or something, but it was funny.

I have had Cane's, it wasn't anything special. Kind of reminded me of Zaxby's.

What's your favorite?

#29 Edited by Serraph105 (28143 posts) -

Popeyes all the way for me.

#30 Posted by Hallenbeck77 (14448 posts) -

Popeyes for me. The quality of KFC's food has gone down in recent years, and I think it's bullshit that they don't even include drinks with their meals, while most every other restaurant out there does. Never eaten at a Chik-fil-a, so i can't comment on them.

#31 Edited by Fightingfan (38011 posts) -

Chickfila is too expensive for what it is, and they hate gays so...

Is it owned by George W?

And a liver value meal? I think i'll pass on that.

None of the above

Chicken is arguably the most abused animal on the planet because it is raised as food so much.

#37 Posted by lamprey263 (24130 posts) -

Chick-Fil-A, I may not like their nutty Christian backing, but damn they make good stuff, and their Asian chicken salad is pretty bomb, their spicy chicken sandwich is pretty good, I dig their waffle fries and the variety of sauces to dip them in, and their sweetened iced-T is greatness. Plus the staff is nice, they walk out to your table and offer to get you a refill, or they bring you your food.

I can look past the fiasco over their anti-LGBT stance, most fast food restaurants are a haven that disregards human decency of their workers and people in general.

You can't put a downside on delicious.

The difference between you and I is I am not dismissing the downside, but you are.

Chick-Fil-A is easily the highest quality food.

Chick-Fil-A. KFC always makes me sick.

It's not so much that the owners hold an anti-gay stance, everyone is entitled to their own views, no matter how assbackwards. It's that they fund organizations that are actively involved in oppressing gay rights. As a consumer I will not knowingly give money to anyone who may use the money they get from me to support causes that I find repugnant.

Just because I'm correct.

Nobody was trying to force them not to say what they want. Just very stupid people like you pretend that was happening as it makes you look like you were fighting for good rather than evil.

Really? Wow.. I remember reading that the recipe was completely butchered and was just crispy coating flavored with MSG, not sure if that's true or just in one store but in the UK KFC is pretty much the only big chain chicken fast food available and is brilliant, juicy crispy coated chicken dripping in fat and grease that's been stewing in the flavors for days... Oh I do love KFC.

never tried it, none here. i voted popeyes cause their wicked/naked chicken is so good. but chick fil a does have some good chicken nuggets.

I'd love to try Chik-Fil-A for some reason. I'm getting the vibe that they're expensive compared to other chicken joints, but they have a variety of chicken cooked in different ways. I think they're healthier too? Like they offer grilled chicken breast and whatnot.

I don't think I'd like KFC. Deep fried chicken with heaps of salt? I'll pass.
