It's a chicken place. A notch up from KFC but not that big of a notch.
Popeye's has a pretty good flavor though, can't say that much for the others.
Gosh.... its NOTHING like Church's and the notch up is huge.
The original Poppeys was a plywood building with two order windows to the outside on a shell parking lot. I remember getting chicken there
I grew up in the upper 9th ward which is not far up-river from Arabi where the original place was located.
Al's light display at Christmas was a constant battle with his neighborhood and the Jefferson Parish sheriff's dept. because of the huge crowds and long lines of cars running through narrow subdivision streets. He also caused havoc when he had a helicopter land in the park over the levee from his house.
