I agree with you..Popeye's chicken is the best.

I will go out of my way to buy KFC's cole slaw. Wendy's frozen chocolate dessert (like whipped ice cream) is a winner and not too sweet.


Church's Chicken is much better.

@chai2,
KFC indeed has cole slaw the way I like it. Even better than the local Spare Rib, which is very good.

@ehBeth,
They recently opened a Pollo Tropical down the street. I remember them from living in Fla.

Pretty good.

My favorite is their sides of black beans and rice. I'm thinking I'll skip the meals and just pick up large side orders of them, or at least the beans. I'll make my own rice.

They have interesting sauces, like pineapple rum.

I got some of their curry mustard, and it was so good mixed in with the beans and rice. I wouldn't usually put mustard with beans, but the curry made the difference.

On fast food, I've not been a fan, have avoided it for years at a time, but will go there with others sometimes. I generally like hole in the wall family restaurants better (see Jonathan Gold's writing). But, and there is a big but, I fell hook line and sinker for Burger King's big fish sandwich, back in northern california. Hmm, I may need to check out if I still like those, as BKing is in Abq too. We're not famous for great fish in this city, though - but I've no idea how the BKing distribution system works.

@chai2,
Is the rice anything special? It looks like regular white rice.

I could live on rice and beans.

Around here these are pretty popular, although there are some people that wouldn't get near them.

Chico's Tacos

https://s3-media1.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/pmW_8nhnhx99FCEGmFS_gw/ls.jpg

Rolled ground beef tacos drowned in a light, mildly piquant tomato sauce covered in yellow cheese. The green salsa is the fiery one. They're an El Paso original.

No, I'd probably just make my own rice.

I do make a fair amount of dry beans, but black beans take much longer to cook, in my experience, than let's say red beans.

It would just be a fast, relatively inexpensive way to get your bean on.

I just looked at their online menu, and a regular side order of black beans is $1.99. When mixed with rice I thought it was enough for 2 meals. The large side is $3.49. I guess it's twice as big. I don't know.

I mean, yeah, that's super cheap to get 2 meals for 2 bucks, plus your own rice, but then I think how I could buy a pound of dried black beans for $1.50 or so, and get 3 pounds cooked. With the cooking gas and spices, let's say $2.

I know, it can be false economy if you don't want more, and forget to freeze them. It's just that I find beans such a miracle food. If only people in the U.S. would catch on you don't have to add 5 pounds of nasty sausage, or other unhealthy things.

sigh.

Oh. Another fast food place I like is Pei Wei. It's owned by PF Changs.

Actually, the only thing I get on the menu is the Mongolian Beef, and sometimes I'll switch out the beef for chicken.

Their brown rice is addictive. It's if not the best I've ever had, it's right up there.

In todays mail was a flyer with coupons for Schlotzky's.

There were two BOGO coupons, along with others.

So for $8 we split a giant salad (cranberry, apple, pecan, field greens, chicken breast with raspberry vinegarette) and a french dip sandwich.

I'll probably use the other this weekend.

I couldn't make that at home for the price.

portion control. I eat all kinds of crap, but in small portions.
One McD's hamburger a month sorta keeps that Mickeydee umame gene at bay.
