This past month, Popeye’s unveiled its new Chicken Sandwich nationwide, sparking an online debate about which fast food chicken sandwich should reign supreme. Raising Cane’s, Chick-fil-A, and even Wendy’s were showing up to defend themselves. While we’re not here to name a winner, there’s one thing we do know: there’s no shortage of crispy, juicy, spicy fried chicken sandwiches here in New Orleans. Popeye’s may claim to have “run out” of their signature sandwich for now, but you’ve got plenty of options for the next time a craving hits. Plus, with National Fried Chicken Festival right around the corner from September 20-22, it won’t be long until you get your chicken fix. Here’s our guide to the best fried chicken sandwiches in New Orleans.
