SOCAL’S SWEET DIXIE KITCHEN SAYS ITS POPEYES CHICKEN IS NO SECRETOctober 21, 2017
We’re about to POP at this Popeyes copycat!
A breakfast spot in Long Beach, California called Sweet Dixie Kitchen is known for its southern comfort food. The website describes it as “food with southern roots and also some inspired imagination” Well, someone named Tyler H. spilled some hot tea on Yelp about what exactly is inspiring that imagination.
“Before my friends and I got seated [at the restaurant] we saw them quickly bring in two large boxes of Popeyes to the kitchen.”
After seeing this, Tyler H. decided he had to get the “Chicken and Biscuits” to confirm his suspicions and the taste test did not lie.
“I kindly asked our waiter how they cooked their fried chicken. After checking he admitted that they do in fact use Popeyes. The manager compensated us for the entire meal.”
The owner Kim Sanchez responded to the Yelp comment.
“We PROUDLY SERVE Popeyes’ spicy tenders — the best fried chicken anywhere and from New Orleans — which are delivered twice a day. We also in case you need to know buy our gumbo from a friend who sells it at a local farmers market. We promote usually small batch local producers in our menu. The exception is Popeyes – we can’t fry at this location – and it’s the fried chicken I love so much and I ate a ton of it in the ATL. So I serve it.”
Kim Sanchez also went on the confirm it in an interview with Fox News.
“We wrote it on our board in the restaurant, ‘Imported from Louisiana this week, thank you Popeyes.’ It wasn’t a secret. We use the chicken as an ingredient in a menu item we made, we don’t use their sauces or anything else.”
It’s all fun and games until you realize it’s $13….
