    The "spicy" isn't the least bit spicy. What they now call "spicy" used to be what they called "mild" until whiners complained and ruined it.

    They used to have a spinach salad bar ages ago at some locations, but it didn't last.

    The dirty rice is fairly good and the biscuits are nicely fluffy but sometimes a bit dry.

    I have never tried Popeye's.

    The commercials advertise seafood too.
    They have some popcorn shrimp, which is not very good, and a blackened grilled catfish that is pretty tasty.

    I don't put gravy on my fries ever, so I can let you know if they do, but I won't be able to tell you how it tastes. MelMak like gravy WITH his fries, so he may be able to tell you how it tastes if they offer it. Most chicken places around here offer gravy with fries.

    Well, you know I won't be trying the catfish, if there is such a thing here.

    Here's the Canadian menu.

    No catfish, Alaskan whitefish instead.

    Up until, IIRC, last year they served catfish.

    They likely realized that catfish is gross to normal people.

    Is the chicken good? Is it always spicy? Thoughts?
    A bit on the spicy side, but not much --- I love their Red Beans and Rice!!!!

    Catfish for me is "filler food." If there is some left over after supper / dinner and you're still hungry it'll do the trick. Then a friend of my brother opened up a restaurant not far from where I live which specialized in catfish. The family would meet there for brunch every second or third weekend though I'd get the shrimp which was good. Then one day, my mother who only ate about half her catfish asked me if I wanted to finish hers. This was one of those times where after a meal I was nowheres near being full. So I took some of her catfish. After eating a bite I took the rest. From that point on I ordered the catfish. It really was that good

    He also had by far the best hushpuppies as well. I'd swing by and pick up a double order of them every so often and take them home.

    Unfortunately, the government frowns mighty hard at those who aren't paying their payroll taxes and he got shut down as a result.
