Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits / unsanitary restrooms and poor customer service!

1 United States Review updated:

My wife and I recently went to Alexandria, La to shop. On our way home we stopped at the Popeyes on U.S.165 in Kingsville. We ordered our food and my wife went to the restroom. Shortly she came from the restroom and was livid. She told the salesperson behind the counter their restroom for the ladies was filthy. The sales person didn't respond at all. My wife found the manager and told him there was feces on the camode seats. He said he would check it out. Don't know if he did or not but we will not be going back to eat in any Popeyes. We plan to pass this information to all our friends and hope they will do the same. If the restrooms are this unsanitary, it makes you wonder what other health problems may be present that the public doesn't see.

    Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits - Took 30 minutes to get food
    United States

    It was late Friday night working hard so I decided to stop at Popeyes to get some dinner. I ordered the 5 piece chicken strips meal but they didn't have anything ready. They said it would take about 15 minutes. It took 30 minutes instead. The workers were lazy and weren't working fast. Everyone reading this right now, go to KFC for fried chicken not POPEYES!

    I went to the Popeyes chicken store #2509 the out side appearance of the store was terrible there was trash all over the parking lot there were potholes all over the parking lot. The building was dirty especially around the drive through window area. The person working the drive through window was on the phone having what sounded like a personal conversation.The wait in the drive through line was so long the car in front of me got tired of waiting and pulled away. On other visits to this same location I have gone inside . But after seeing the appearance of the store and the some employers their attitudes. I will not be returning . Thanks.

    I have a new complaint, and do not know how to get my own page. I work in the HomeHealth field. One of my clients had a card sponsored by Wellcare and Popeyes, reading "BE OUR GUEST! This card entitles you to A 3 Piece Combo. " It asked for a valid signature.. she signed it. No expiration date. I traveled 4 miles round trip to get this meal for her dinner. When I presented the card to the clerk, she said "This was last weeks promotion: she would have to be present anyway." I bought the dinner for her.. I was not going back empty handed.
    My client is not able to ride with me to be present #1, secondly there is no expiration on the card. This event took place at the store on San Jose Blvd, Jacksonville, Fl. My client was very embarrassed, wondering what she owed me. I told her nothing, it is not your fault. I can provide the card upon your request. Please give this your full attention. I do not believe WellCare would want to hear what they are sponsoring such a bogus advertising. Thank you

    Ewe!! I just went to the Antioch, Illinois Popeyes and was extremely disappointed! First of all, the restaurant just opened and they were offering a 10 piece box special for $11.99. The total the cashier gave me was $19.77. I had to tell her what the price of the special was (?). Then, a girl sucking on her finger came to the window and said they had no chicken legs so could they substitute which I guess isn't a big deal but it's dinner time, shouldn't they have the essentials ready? The third thing was that the BISCUITS WERE OLD. Ick! When I worked in restaurants, we threw away bread and rolls at the end of the day. It was obvious, since the biscuit was hard on the bottom and tasted like crap, that they used biscuits from the day before. I am extremely disappointed and will be copying this note and sending it to the Popeyes corp. office.

    There is a manager with a nasty attitude at the store 2601 Comika Dioxn. She don't know how to talk to the gust as she takes the orders and they don't never have chicken. I don't think she need to have a job working with other guest.

    In fairness,not all popeyes eatery are that filthy and bad. For instance, In our area,Torrance LA... located in sepulveda... they have courteous employees, serve time was fast,clean counters, and didn't hear problems from people coming in and out. I've been eating there for more than 5 years already(its near our house). All restaurants anyway have their Pros and Cons.

    I went to the Popeye's at 2125 E. Pioneer Pkwy. in Arlington, Texas on March 13, 2008. After seeing the food, I got my money back and left. The 2 piece had a chicken leg that looked like it was cut off the wing.The thigh was old looking and burnt. I tried to talk to the manager but was given the run around. The chicken looked as if it had been cooked the day before and just reheated for my order. I will NOT be going back again.

    I went to the popeye's chicken this evening and sat in line for 15min. to get to the order and be told that it would be another 15min's to get mild chicken. they did not have any cooked I not believe what I was hearing .A chicken resturant that is busy do not have chicken cooked and you would have to wait 15mins I said unexceptable and the kid said owell. I left and went to another chicken place got more for my money and was home in the amount of time I would have gotten popeyes. This was in Lincoln Ne on N 48th st.

    I recently had some bad expierence with Popeyes in the Waterfront, Homested Pa. Long time ago I quit going to that particular one cause they were always messing up my order. Then they went under new management the place is now cleaner and the service got a little better but now they arent good either. I dont think I will ever go back they still mess up orders they charge you for everything how do they not give you at least one sauce even McDonalds gives one sauce for your order. Also the management are not nice they cant even try to make it right for their employes so you never have to worry about getting my money. I will never give that particular Popeyes my money ever again. There are many other establishments my money.

    I recently went to Popeyes in Moreno Valley, number 10385 on my way home from work on June 27. I looked up at the advertisement on display and I decided to order a #9 catfish dinner. When I recieved my order I was livid. I knew from past experience to allways check your order before leaving a restaurant.But, when I looked in the bag at the size of the catfish, I was surprized and mad. It was't close to the size displayed on the billboard. The catfish was no larger than the size of a McDonald's chicken mcnugget. The store attendant tried to convince me that it was the same size as the picture on display.YEAH RIGHT.I feel that this is false advertisement.

    I am so glad I decided to take the time to sit down and pull this site up! Its been 8 days ago and I'm STILL fuming over our visit to Popeyes in Waynesboro, Ga.
    There had been a fire that burned the store to the ground over a year ago.My family enjoys the food there even tho the parking lot was always grubby, the store is messy, bathrooms nasty, they screw up your orders, and the staff couldn't care less! Still we waited, watching as they built it.Finally it was open. We went a couple of times but they were slow, talking on the cell phones and each other, ran out of chicken at lunch or had dried up chicken etc.
    We waited a few months.I saw coupons in the paper and we decided to all go.At the counter we found that the coupons were not worth the effort to cut them out.I looked at the board and saw the catfish strips.Almost $7 for 6.The strips looked good size, I ordered them.My Brother got the butterfly shrimp.Mom and Sister got chicken.I got my order sat down and looked at my fish"strips" I was furious!!! I held the biggest one up and it was the size of my index finger!!! I took it back up to the counter and and told the clerk I wanted fish STRIPS not embreyos. I got that famous Duhhhhhhh look.I wanted to toss them over the counter but was very hungry.I looked at my brother "butterfly" shrimp.I saw a little pile of tails.Whoops, my bad. That WAS the butterfly shrimp!!! Even the pigeon, uhhh, chicken was messed up and had to be changed.We were very unhappy campers.When I spoke to friends last week, I found that 8 out of 10 people had the same complaints and they live 50 miles away in Augusta, Ga
    I'm trying to get a group of my buddies together and picket in front or a sit in.Yeah, I'm that mad.Sick of being ripped off!
    Good thing... the fish was hot, tarter sauce steller!
    False advertizing, bait and switch, misrep. a product...

    The last time I went into Popeye's I was told there would be an 8 minute wait on mild chicken, well that wait turned into 35 minutes. While I am waiting they are selling my chicken to everyone that ordered after me and I had already paid. Today I go into the Navasota Texas location and 2 people working at lunch time 12:00pm there was a line of course. When I ordered they messed up both of my orders and they did not have any fries, they did not have any gravy for mashed potatoes, they did not have any of the sandwiches offered on the menu, and no spicy chicken strips. Really???? This place is sad and should be shut down. It's lunch time, why did they even open the doors? The 2 girls that were in there did not understand English well at all, made my lunch longer than expected. Please get some employees in there that know what they are doing. Please this is happening too often.

    So because someone who is not potty trained went in the restaurant before your wife did you blame them? Also how old is your wife, can't she fight her own battles and post her own reviews? Clearly if she is old enough to be married she can fight her own battles.

    A heavy-set guy usually works in the back handing out chicken with exposed frontal neck-wound showing blood seeping though gauze around the neck.
    This is very unsanitary and unappetizing . I hope corporate do something about this situation. Just wanted to have a good meal, or buying stuffs home for the kids, upon seeing this a few times, just don't want to buy from this place anymore. It's very disgusting.

    I realize this is old, but I have to say it. For all of you wondering if the kitchen is nasty because the bathrooms are nasty, please remember, it is the customer who ### all over the toilet seat in the bathroom and leaves it, not the employees. So your insinuation about the kitchen is ridiculous. Customers are not allowed in the kitchen. If you want a clean bathroom, then stop making messes everywhere. You want a clean place to eat, clean up after your self entitled, nasty selves.

    Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen - I am complaining about how rude & disrespectful one of the cashier was. She also appeared to be high on something.
    United States

    When I was trying to place my order, the cashier was constantly getting it wrong. She kept stumbling & slurring her words. This isn't the first time that this has happened, at this location. Numerous of the other employees, also appeared to be high. The store would always be dirty, I would always have to get someone to clean a table.
