What about the corn on the cob? (I wouldn’t put it at #1 or anything, but it does exist.)

I was expecting spinach to be _somewhere_ on the list.

Wait – the Popeye’s restaurants in Canada think it’s weird for you to ask for gravy to dip your fries in? I have to assume that they think this is weird because they don’t have cheese curds on the menu and can’t possibly fathom eating something vaguely poutine-like without it actually being poutine because otherwise I can’t see it.

(FWIW – my local Popeye’s didn’t think it was weird at all that I wanted gravy for things that weren’t mashed potatoes. This could be because I live in Ohio, where adding more fat to food is a state hobby, or it could be because the poor guy behind the counter is not being paid enough to care about the weird shit that his customers do. Either way, no problems here.)

(And also – you’re wrong. The mashed potatoes are better than that reddish glop that they call “beans”. Hell the green beans with the fake bacon in them are better than that reddish glop they call “beans”.)

It’s true. I don’t get to eat at Popeye’s often (the nearest location to me is in South Boston, and I don’t go to Southie much), but I had it in Providence, and the biscuits are amazing. I didn’t even need butter. I ALWAYS eat biscuits with butter, but Popeye’s biscuits are perfect as they are. They must never change.

Why did I think this was going to be about Popeye the comic book character? We briefly had a Popeye’s here in town (I’m Canadian, and now the Popeye’s is a Salvation Army store). I did like it better than KFC, but it was in an area of town I didn’t frequent much. Ah well.

The onion rings wonder why you don’t care about them.

Thd beans and rice and biscuits are the best and only reason to go to Popeyes.

Is there a Mary Brown’s in Toronto? ‘Cause they have pretty good coleslaw, and they always give you separate gravy. Their macaroni salad’s crap, though.

(For the record, Mary Brown’s is a fast food chicken chain based mainly out of Atlantic Canada. I’m pretty sure they’ve got restaurants as far west as Alberta, though.)

The only side dish you need from Popeye’s is Cajun Sparkle.

I grew up 5 houses down from Al Copeland, the owner of Popeyes.

He was a real asshole of a neighbor, so it was basically forbidden to eat at Popeyes.

But oh that forbidden red beans and rice! woo!

I have ordered just biscuits at Popeye’s once. It was amazing.

And that’s why a friend calls them crack biscuits.

I was reading through this list and getting increasingly angry about the omission of biscuits…only for the last line to save it. Well played.

Haha @”White Person Spicy”

You can also put Taco Bell hot sauce in that category.

I can actually contribute to the cole slaw discussion: the factory makes jars of cole slaw sauce, and bags of shredded cabbage with a few grated carrots in there. It’s a some-assembly-required slaw that usually happens in a big plastic tub, or possibly a bucket lined with a plastic bag. There’s two or three different labels on the jars, but it’s probably all the same factory.

For the first time I ordered a lg side of green beans for my dinner for 3. Bottom line is none of them were touched. What is the snot like substance they are cooked in? They are horrible!
