What's the big deal with these sandwiches?

They look nice but nothing that special

Also, in a bun = chicken burger, not sandwich!
I don't know why but that always bugs me when Americans refer to burgers as sandwiches :olol:

The emphasis is on the ground meat making it a burger. A chicken cutlet or fish filet aren't ground meat. If you grind up chicken or turkey meat and form it into a patty then we call it a burger. If you slice up beef and put it on buns it's not a burger, it's a beef sandwich.

The term "chicken burger" makes my brain hurt. A hamburger is a sandwich, but a hamburger has to have ground meat.

I was on my own for dinner Saturday night, so I decided to drive over to the nearest Popeyes. Cars were lined up around the restaurant and almost out into the street. I kept driving :olol: I hope the CHICKEN SANDWICH is everything you hoped it would be.

Yeah that'll happen sometimes, driving to other locations to pick up extra supplies. My brother used to do that when he worked at McDonald's in high school.

Didn't get one. They need a half hour to prepare and I was already there 30 minutes. I went to McDonald's up the street and got out in 3 minutes.

When it comes to food, there are plenty of other subtle differences in assumptions. A chicken "burger" would be assumed to be a patty of ground chicken in the US, where in the UK it might be a whole chicken breast on a bun. A British "sandwich" is assumed to be made with sliced bread while an American one might be on a baguette, bagel, or roll.

:olol: I live an hour away from the nearest Chick-fil-A, so Popeyes is our only salvation. I'm okay with that, I like my chicken places to be gritty and not be an evangelical church of chicken.

The only thing I ever want from Chick-fil-A is a chicken biscuit in the morning, no one else seems to have that.

I like this place that is a gas station that sells chicken and crack pipes with the rose inside (so they can deny what it is to cops.)

Well I went down to the Kentucky Fried Chicken last night.
The branding is stupid. I called my brother and asked if he wanted something from Kentucky Fried Chicken.
and he said he didn't feel like KFC. GENIUS, why don't we all start calling it KFC to save time?

If every single person in the entire world uses the letters KFC to mean Kentucky Fried Chicken, I am sure we could make it stick somehow...

Also, the Crispy strips were crap! Dry and bland.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

I wish I could have tried one, but the nearest Popeyes to me is 30 miles away and that one is terrible. I’d have to drive 60 miles just to go to one that’s decent.
