With the Popeyes Fried Chicken Sandwich craze sweeping the nation for a second time, plus last weekend’s Fried Chicken Sundays at Craft House selling out in 1 hour 15 min., it seems hungry people everywhere have a craving for golden, crispy poultry that can’t be satiated.
Seriously. Look at the line wrapped around the Popeyes in Santa Ana recently. I waited it out for a Popeyes Chicken Sandwich and I have to say … it was a good fast food version of a fried chicken sandwich. They served them in foil wrappers (a la Chic-Fil-A) that steam the sandwich a bit too much before you can enjoy it, but overall it’s better than anyone else’s out there in the fast food arena.
But, if you’re not in the mood to wait in line, or just want to find better flavors in other places, there are plenty of great options in Orange County (and one in Long Beach that I like, too).
