Does Popeyes sell livers and gizzards? 

Not all Popeyes locations sell livers and gizzards. The menu item depends on the market. In some markets, such as the Southern United States, livers and gizzards are a popular. In other markets, such as the Northeast United States, livers and gizzards are not as popular and are not typically sold. For example, I can’t order livers or gizzards where I live in Idaho.

If you can find fried chicken gizzards and livers in your area you can find them for sale around $3.99. Know that these are considered one of the unhealthiest Popeyes menu items coming in at 1,190 calories, 80 grams of fat, and a staggering 765 milligrams of cholesterol. You’ve been warned!

No, Popeyes is not Halal in the United States. The chicken is not slaughtered according to Islamic law and the restaurant uses beef tallow in its cooking oil.

Does Popeyes serve breakfast?

Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. But you can’t order breakfast in the United States at Popeyes. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

Is Popeyes an expensive restaurant to eat at?

Popeyes is a fast food restaurant that’s considered an inexpensive place to eat. You’d be hard pressed to find a restaurant offering lower-cost meal deals considering there are numerous box combos priced between $5 – $10. I mean, there are breakfast sandwiches at Starbucks that sell for more than $5.00.

But how does Popeyes prices stand up against the competition like KFC who sells comparable items? Pretty well in my opinion. For example, A KFC chicken sandwich is about $4.99 while the Spicy Chicken Sandwich at Popeyes is only $3.99 (20% less). While a 12-piece tenders meal at KFC costs $34.99 and comes with 3 large sides, 6 sauces, and 6 biscuits, a similar meal at Popeyes costs $32.99 and comes with 12 tenders, 2 large sides, and 6 biscuits. This is not an exact comparison since you get an additional side item at KFC so we’ll call the overall pricing pretty even between the two chains. 

When does Popeyes open? When does Popeyes close?

he opening and closing hours for Popeyes restaurants can vary depending on the location and day of the week. Typically, Popeyes locations open between 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM and close between 10:00 PM and 11:00 PM. However, some locations may have extended hours.

Is there a free chicken menu hack at Popeyes? 

Free Popeyes Chicken Menu Hack

This might be one of the most speculative menu hacks I’ve ever seen. I’d love to hear if this one works for you. I haven’t validated it myself just yet but I plan to.

This YouTuber says that you can order 3 chicken tenders and Popeyes and that staff will add more chicken into the box because it looks wrong in the box. In the video, the YouTuber goes through the drive-thru at Popeyes and places an order for 3 chicken tenders, but he gets 8 pieces of chicken. In this example the YouTuber got 5 free chicken tenders and paid less than $5 total for the order. I plan to test this soon and will let you know the results.

Popeyes Loaded Cajun Buffalo Chicken Ranch Mac Poutine

With its very long name, you might wonder if this hack will really taste good. But worry not because I assure you that with this you can spice up your meals. Just place an order for a combo of chicken tenders, cajun fries, Buffalo and ranch dressing, mac and cheese, and gravy.Then pour the gravy over the entire serving of fries. Mix your macaroni and cheese and your diced chicken tenders.

Cajun Sparkle: If you’re looking to add a little extra kick to your meal, ask for the “Cajun Sparkle” seasoning. This secret ingredient is not listed on the menu, but it’s a staple in the Popeyes kitchen and is sure to take your taste buds on a wild ride. The blend of spices and herbs adds a bold, flavorful twist to any dish.

Naked Chicken Tenders: Eat less guilt by ordering the “Naked Chicken Tenders.” These tenders are a healthier alternative to traditional breaded chicken tenders because they are breaded-free. Additionally, you won’t have to give up taste for health, since the naked tenders are equally as tasty as the original.

Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits: If you’re in the mood for something sweet, ask for the “Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits.” These fluffy, buttery biscuits are rolled in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, giving them a sweet and decadent flavor. You’ll be amazed to learn that the ingredients for this treat are already on hand for their famous cinnamon apple pies. Simply ask an employee to roll your biscuits in the cinnamon sugar mixture and enjoy a sweet surprise!
