    I like the location. In the ghetto dirty south. Smart move by them.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    The first in Alberta is confirmed for Edmonton in 2017. Hopefully we will have one to follow

    Really looking forward to Popeye's, but really not looking forward to crossing east of Deerfoot

    This shiz better be as good as they say!

    It's shitty low-grade fast food fried chicken. People here are hyping it because it's novel. This reminds me of the Carl's Jr. thread.

    Exactly, where's that thread now? Popeye's is considered a low-class, "poor people's" joint down in the states.

    I hope to see some of the other brands pop up here though, like In-N-Out, Super Duper Burger, Panera and White Castle.

    Oh, and a Chipotle would be good too, now that most of the Taco Bells have all but disappeared.

    There's nothing wrong with "cheap junk" alternatives once in a while but when these chains hit Canada, the "cheap" part goes away and all that's left is the "junk".

    Nobody goes to whitecastle to get a Gordon Ramsay handcrafted burger. They go for 25 cent sliders and to buy 100 of them when they're drunk or hungover. When they come to Canada they'll cost $5 each and be completely pointless. Popeyes is fine, but nobody will want to pay Calgary prices for it. Then on the other side you have places like Carl's Jr that costs more than dining out at Earls.

    Places that have made it work are 5 guys and smashburger who have great product at the right price. Not many can accomplish that.

    Isn't Mucho Burrito is pretty much Chipotle quality wise? Although it's been quite a few years since I stepped into a Chipotle.

    You know its good by the number of roaches and rats that hang around.

    That being said, Alberta is a rat free zone.
    The USA is building a paywall for entry

    My last stint in Ohio I ate at Chipotle a couple times. I think I like Mucho better actually but really I don't think they're that much different.

    I'm not a fried chicken fan, I've eaten KFC maybe twice in my whole life. But just like Carl's Jr. Fatburger, 5 guys etc I'll give Popeyes a shot at least once.

    Are In-N-Out, Super Duper Burger, Panera and White Castle considered 'rich people's' restaurants?

    Compared to ghetto Popeyes



    Not all fast food restaurants are in the same category. Would you say that 5 Guys is the same as McD's?

    For example, to eat at Super Duper Burger you have to a) be in San Francisco and b) spend up to $25USD pp for a full meal with desert.
    They also cook their patties medium well, so you know it's not some value chain.

    I like Popeye's, went in Vallejo once. Took a limo and driver and paid for my 5 dollar chicken with a crisp 100. People there were looking at me funny, good times!

    that $5 magically turns into $20 when it hits Canada for some reason :p that's the problem with these damn US chains that people get excited about. Carl's is good, but in Canada it costs me the same as a burger at Earls. Sorry.
