Popeyes is spicier but not as greasy as KFC... and KFC is always good comfort food.

I used to like KFC. I don't care for it any longer. I tried Popeyes once and I didn't care for it one bit. So if I really had to pick I guess I'd have to say KFC.


Nothing is better than KFC. Nothing.

This is a matter of taste and frankly each has positioned themselves with different menus and tastes. Many people enjoy both.
