Popeyes Chicken / halal meat

1 Ontario, Canada Review updated:

I used to eat chicken at "Popeyes Chicken" very regularly until I found out that they use Halal-Meat and that means the chicken was slaughtered in a way, which is very cruel and the bird or animal suffers for a long time after its neck is cut a little for bleeding.
Canadian way of slaughtering is lot more humane and quick and therefore the animal doesn't suffer. The only reason Canada allows Halal slaughtering is because of the Muslim-Vote.

    Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits - Farmers Branch, Tx - Horrible customer service
    United States

    Ordered at drive-thru at Josey Lane location in Farmers Branch, Texas, huge pothole at service window, took over 8 minutes at lunch to prepare order. Unfriendly employee never apologized for delay or appeared to have any interest in customer service, like a "Thank You" or any other courtesy.

    Arrived home with order, biscuit and chicken strip were missing from order. As a bonus they did not provide a receipt.

    Called Popeye's customer service and spoke to a very nice lady who had absolutely no authority to handle my problem. All she could do was "Take down my complaint and submit it to management".

    Supposedly "management" would evaluate my complaint and contact me if they deemed me worthy of a meal replacement.

    Guess I was not worthy because they never called.

    No more trips to POPEYES CHICKEN & BISCUITS for me!

    Popeyes Chicken - Terrible service!
    Popeyes Chicken
    Store # 1515 order # 220
    Dallas, Texas
    United States
    Phone: (214) 498-7500

    I have visited this restaurant 3 times in a one month period. Each time I order the same thing, a 3 piece combo meal to go. The first visit I payed for a 3 piece meal but received only a 2 piece meal. The second visit I ordered the 3 piece meal to go and informed the register person that I was shorted a piece of chicken the last time, so please make sure I have what I ordered. She complied and gave me an extra wing for my trouble. Today April the 11th 2008 I order a 3- piece meal to go. I get back to the office and again I have paid for 3- piece meal but have received a 2 piece meal. I call the restaurant and tell the manager my story. He apologizes and offers a free meal on my next visit. This is nice but all anyone wants is WHAT THEY ORDERED. One should not have to open and inventory their order, slowing down the process, that is the restaurants job.

    Quit eating at fast food places if you want good service. I assume when you go to BK you want table service. For cheap food you get cheap service, go figure you cheap ###!

    Popeye's - not receiving all of my order
    6667 Kathlee
    United States

    On Sunday 11/23/08 we placed an order of 23 mixed pieces w/two side orders (fries and red beans & rice) w/biscuits. We had to wait about 10 minutes for the biscuits and when we got home we did not have our order of fries. So all we had was the chicken, red beans & rice and the biscuits. The total for our order was $24.83 and on the receipt it had chk 3113. We drove about 20 miles to get our Sunday meal after attending our Sunday mass.

    The Muslim vote is insignificant to the Canadian political spectrum

    Captive Bolt Stunning (CBS) - the method of stunning with a bolt into the head before slaughter - is the perfer method by animal rights organizations to slaugther animals has been shown to cause more pain to the animals than by Halal or Kosher methods.

    A study incorporating EEG (Electroencephalograph) with electrodes surgically implanted on the skull of 17 sheep and 15 calves, and conducted by Wilhelm Schulze et al. at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Germany concluded that "the slaughter in the form of a ritual cut is, if carried out properly, painless in sheep and calves according to EEG recordings and the missing defensive actions" (of the animals) and that "For sheep, there were in part severe reactions both in bloodletting cut and the pain stimuli" when Captive Bolt Stunning (CBS) was used. This study is cited by the German Constitutional Court in its permitting of dhabiha slaughtering.

    For all you out there who like to comment without obtaining proper facts or knowledge,
    the halal way of slaughtering does drain the blood out of the body, but little do you know that when the throats of the animal are severed, the main senses that go to the brain of the animal are cut-off too. This causes it no pain and also cleanses the animal body from the blood impurities also. The "severe reactions" as stated above are caused by muscle contractions due to loss in blood which the animal canot sense.

    I request that next time all the facts obtained should be straight before things like these are posted in a manner that puts our religions name down.

    Popeyes Cajun Chicken - quality of food
    United States

    I have been told you havn't had fried chicken till you've eaten theirs, not, I never had chicken that dried out ever...I'll never go back and will spread the word. All we heard in New Orleans was how this is the best, we were so glad when one finally came to Pa., WHAT A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

    I also agree with the Offended Muslim Resident. More times than none, people will just speak just to hear themselves speak, without researching their facts.

    Popeyes - The food was good but when you order you need to check your bags due to lack of knowledge when preparing your order they get confused very easily
    United States

    The food was good but when you order you need to check your bags due to lack of knowledge when preparing your order they get confused very easily. this has happened more than once check your order throughly before you leave. I ended getting 12 pieces of chicken instead of 20 the girl doesn't know how to enter orders. I did call popeyes they said they would replace the 8 pieces of chicken but i think i will go the popeyes in round lake like i use to i never had a problem there. Ordering correctly is more important than not having enougn food for my family.

    Simpson. You're argument was destroyed man. And they're right, you should get your facts straight first. Your "Canadian" way of slaughtering animals is cruel and not very humane. By the way might I add, the slaughtering of an animal in Islam is much more humane than any other way out there, meaning the blade must be sharp so as to end it as quickly as possible for the animal and that the animal is not kept in an uncomfortable, unclean sty . It is raised with caring, proper and fair treatment.

    Hi you “INFIDELS RULE”
    In islam people who kill others and terror them self are not Muslims, In fact they are kaffirs(non muslim). Most of those people are supported by USA which is a plan to destroy islam from inside, but it is not going to happen. Our religion is the best because nobody(person) has changed it.

    Popeyes Chicken just opened a new location near me and can't wait to go with the family to try it out. That's after I verify they do actually sell halal chicken. Don’t be angry with people that choose what they eat and you don’t care. The people that choose not to eat KFC and MacDonald meat, as hard that could have been for them, are being reworded with a place that caters to their needs. KFC and other franchises should take note if they would like a piece of this growing market. If they were getting some of the Muslim population they would not after Popeyes move in.

    I thought halal meat was when they let the animal die peacefully and bless it after. Im vegetarian but my family is not being very supportive because im only 13. (my family is not vegetarian.) they say that popeyes kills the animals in a good way. So should i eat popeyes or not? im sooo confused =(

    from save the animals =)

    Well don't say you're a vegetarian in one breath and then ask if you should eat meat in another...
